These schools are not for first year teachers. I was The P.E. teacher at the Academy of Warren and it was the worse experience I ever had. I had no gym but an empty classroom and no resources to do my job and when I asked for them, the administration did not come through. Student behaviors is a big issue. The students disrespect the teaching staff and it has gotten so bad that even the administration has no clue what to do. They will not back you up and are only out for themselves. They claim they will support the teachers but they don't.
The administration does not come through on anything they say. They have told the students that they will take away privliages and possibly exspell them, but they don't. The School leader is only out for herself and is trying to make a name for herself.
The school does not have any grading program up and running so teachers have to find there own. They do not provide any student information for you. In order to get it you have to ask the student or there Homeroom teacher. It makes it hard to know if the student has any kind of medical issues.
The Teaching staff is awesome and I loved them very much and the curriculum coach was awesome too. That is the only positive thing I can say. If you are a P.E. teacher do not apply because the school has no gym or outside areas to play games. They have no equipment and the students abuse everything. Do not believe what the School Leaders says because it isn't true.
