New Student Orientation Leader (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – June 6, 2017
Working at Capital City Public Charter School for the Summer Youth Employment program helped me gain better communication skills and customer service. A typical day at work would be coming into work earlier before studetns arrived, have their schedules ready, and assigned students assignemnts. I've had to manage paperwork and entering grades and being a leader. The most enjoyable part of this job was interacting with everyone during break, and activities that would take place outdoors.

Many behavior issues here because administration is far too lenient on the students which causes a ridiculous strain on teachers. The permissive nature of the environment allows for an incredibly high number of behavior incidents per day. But unlike other schools, admin are very kind to their staff.
Administrator (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – May 16, 2017
Leadership spends a lot of money of a variety of things, without direction or vision for where those efforts are taking students and staff. Staff are often told to do one thing, then on a whim those expectations are abandoned for new and unexplained expectations.
Middle School Math Teacher (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – January 14, 2017
I loved working for Cap City! They truly believe in their teachers to design curriculum and expeditions that will help students experience content, not just learn it. EL truly cares about students becoming successful in life, not just in the classroom.
Pre-kindergarten Assistant Teacher (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – September 7, 2015
I really enjoyed my first year working in a classroom. The pre-kindergarten students always made my day!! They were so very talented. I really enjoyed working with them on their field experience. I learned about phonetic spelling and how all children can do journal writing even at the age of four! I really enjoyed working with the staff and the administration was amazing.
