Full time math instructor (Former Employee) – Excel Academy of Englewood. – September 20, 2018
I had worked very hard producing many worksheets, quizzes and exams, I was grading a lot of classwork material and I was giving precise grades, but the boss did not recognize all this work which I had done for the students. I was solving many math examples to students who were astonished from my great help to them, but the boss did not see all the work which I had given to the students.
Is easy to be accepted to work for this company.
But, the boss will say lies against you as the teacher of classes.
teacher (Current Employee) – Richmond, VA – September 15, 2018
There is a great deal of paperwork involved with teaching here. Accountability and data driven actions are key to the program. Teaching and relating to the students and their unique needs seem to come second. Pay is extremely low and supplies and limited. I have spent too much of my personal money to be able to achieve the objectives of the school and academic system.
no breaks, low pay, stressful schedules and due dates. No substitutes when absences need to be filled.
Great place to work! Proactive and productive company..
DIRECTOR OF OPERATIONS (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – February 27, 2018

Paraprofessional (Former Employee) – Moline, IL – January 31, 2018
The supervisor would start drama with everyone and make everyone feel uncomfortable. They would make up stories and it is not hard to figure out they can’t keep any of their staff!! It’s not because of the children.

It is a good stepping stone that will provide you with a lot of experience but if you are looking for quality supervision, you may not feel fulfilled. You also must be passionate about the population because it is difficult, at times dangerous, and frustrating.
Executive Director (Former Employee) – Camden, NJ – November 17, 2017
Excellent for someone new in the field of education. Can be great from young professionals who are looking to advance their career in education. Difficult to make a living with no bonuses or raise potential.
Teacher (Former Employee) – New Jersey – November 12, 2017
This company is very unprofessional and has an extremely high turnover rate. The pay is awful compared to public and charter school pay but the students are much worse. When a student assaults a teacher or staff member they will be right back at school a week later because Camelot does not want to miss out on those dollars. It costs a public school district approximately $100,000 to send a child to an APS. Why is it that the teachers or aids are paid so poorly?
Program Manager (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – September 6, 2017
Camelot offers a unique population of kids who are excited to work with staff. Camelot students can be challenging, but once they feel comfortable you will see them make a lot of progress. Camelot kids always come back to visit!
