heinous
Teacher (Former Employee) –  NYNovember 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.
Pros
Staff is nice enough
Cons
Dehumanizing

If you have experience look elsewhere
Math Teacher (Former Employee) –  High schoolOctober 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!
Pros
Teachers are all in it together
Cons
Management has no idea what it is doing

paraprofessional (Former Employee) –  Coney Island, NYJanuary 18, 2016
Standard school day. I learned about the ins and outs of their system, how they transition from one subject to another. Everyone is within contact with one another. everyone works together to ensure the safety and genuine education of each child
