Get ready to have a lot of stress
Paraprofessional (Former Employee) –  Moline, ILJanuary 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.

Must be passionate
School Therapist (Current Employee) –  IllinoisNovember 29, 2017
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.

Profit is the bottom line!
Teacher (Former Employee) –  New JerseyNovember 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?
Pros
It is a job
Cons
It is the worst teaching job in the world.

Racist
Culinary Instructor (Former Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAMay 23, 2017
The company is based off of exploiting underprivileged youth. Most campuses are run like a detention center not a school. There's only room for improvement if you're friends with the higher ups.

Excellent Mission and Goal for at risk youth
Behavior Specialist (Former Employee) –  Camden, NJMay 1, 2017
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.
Pros
Impact position
Cons
contract based off city funding

No Behavior Support
Teacher (Former Employee) –  Mount Prospect, ILApril 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.
