Too much dictatorial situations
ESL Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXNovember 6, 2016
This is one school that TEA should shut down.
There is too much negative involvement by the owners.
She fires people at will.
When a campus did not meet expectations, they were all fired.
Many good teachers left because of her.
This school is listed as not-for-profit, but in reality, profits are the number one goal for these people.
There are some great people still working there.
Pros
Could be a potentially good school
Cons
Hot headed superindentent

Enjoyed working with the students but the administration needs to communicate better and be more supportive to the staff.
Social Studies Teacher (Former Employee) –  Grand Prairie, TXOctober 7, 2015
The school has a lot of advantages over public ISD but these are thrown away with indifference by the Administration through low pay, overwork and lack of respect for the educators. Students were always the bright spot of the day. Mentoring and helping them achieve their goals was the main reason to stay.
Pros
Enjoyable students, creative curriculum.
Cons
Lack of communication, "Left in the dark" rather than be straight forward with the staff.

staff were knowledgable and fun to work with
High School Spanish and CTE Teacher (Current Employee) –  Grand Prairie, TXJuly 14, 2015
Charter school with high turnover of staff due to for profit mindset of administration. Focus was more on moving students through the system and not on consistency of employees and the retention of employees that were able and willing to work within the guidelines of the system.
Pros
students willing and wanting to learn
Cons
poor district administration and staff retention policies

Learned a lot about the daily operation of a charter school. Was able to work that a number of instructional software that are available for teachers for classroom use.

The most enjoyable part of this job was scheduling teacher training sessions.
