Paraprofessional (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – February 18, 2016
I had a great experience working with CIP. The people are great. the scholars are very cooperative. I have worked with reasonable co-workers, however, if there is one complaint about a worker, they are confronted with respect.
Teacher (Former Employee) – NY – November 27, 2018
Militaristic behavior management, undifferentiated scripted lesson plans, insane hours. The staff is there for the right reasons, but the school becomes your life and it is a toxic, spiritless environment.
Math Teacher (Former Employee) – High school – October 2, 2016
Coney Island Prep does not value experience, would rather have all new teachers. All teachers are expected to teach one way and any differentiation is frowned upon.
After my second year there they decided to lower my salary (no bonus that I got last year) so I said see ya. They hired two new math teachers and it looks like they quit in the first month. If teachers leave left and right all the time it says something about the work environment.
My coach last year (I taught math) was an ELA teacher, enough said!
