The Potomac School is a wonderful place to work and for children to go to school. It is an old school established in a very affluent section of McLean, Virginia. Wonderful place to work...everyone was very police and considerate of each other...It was like a dream school...we went on field trips in DC almost every week...my children came with me since they were little then. It was a difficult commute, but well worth it...Salary was well above that of public school.
i drove a school bus, so the pros were the salary advantage over other schools, i could bring my own children, who were small, with me to work and on the bus.
i lived at least 45 mins away, so it was a long drive to and from .....

The leadership in the Upper School, and until recently, in the highest positions of the school, Potomac values keeping one's head below the level of the foxhole; another analogy would be the 'ostrich in the sand' approach to management. If, however, you value working with smart and motivated students, even smarter colleagues (who sadly don't remain at the school long enough because of said management philosophy) and are willing to avoid or ignore the managerial disasters, this is a great workplace.
