I have been working at Aspire Public Schools

Pros

Aspire is among the most collaborative educational environments one could hope to work. They support and provide professional development and have high expectations for teacher and student performance.

Cons

The human resources and information technology departments have, at least in my case, proved themselves in need of improved communications, more detail oriented work habits and less mistake-prone staffing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Teachers and students are obviously the meat and potatoes of a charter school organization but I don't think the service provided by administrative departments should suffer as a result.

    I worked at Aspire Public Schools as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    the educational practices in regular education
    the other staff members who are devoted to students and doing quality work
    resources available

    Cons

    teaching to the test instead by the individual's needs
    no loyalty to teachers
    corporate attitude

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It was a good experience to see good teaching practices being taught, but the respect of teachers who do know how to teach and need to tweak their procedures to comply to your verb-age was not there. If you give no loyalty, you won't receive any in return.

    I have been working at Aspire Public Schools

    Pros

    The students, the results, and the intrinsic rewards. Some flexibility in some jobs about dress codes, time off, etc. Teachers get less flexibility.

    Cons

    Compensation, long days, not as much autonomy as expected. Everything (feedback, PD days, the few compensation dollars) are given to teachers; Corporate staff left out of most of those things.
