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!

I've been working for Camelot Education since 2005 and inlove what I do. We are a student focused company that has a heart to elevate the minds and hearts of our students at all of our locations. Great company with great leadership.
Solid company to work for left due to contract cuts in city would return if opportunity presented its self.
Everyday was uniquely challenging. I learned that no two situations are the same when it comes to solving the issues that our youth face today. It takes patients and a keen eye to observe to gauge what solutions are best for the individuals needs.
Management was flexible in-regards to finding the best solutions with in the parameters of the company norms and policies.
Most enjoyable part of the job is making an impact in someones life everyday.
Teacher (Former Employee) – Mount Prospect, IL – April 27, 2017
I accepted a position as a special education teacher at one of the Camelot Schools, and it was the worst teaching experience I have ever had. They are not prepared to handle students with severe behaviors to due to lack of behavior team. They allowed students to attack staff all day with absolutely no supports. The schools have very nice facilities, but horrible support. All of my staff told me to quit if a better opportunity came up, and I chose to take their advice.
