Operations Manager (Former Employee) – Bronx, NY – August 12, 2018
A typical day at Equality is as follow; First thing in the morning the entire staff of Equality huddle up for a brief 10 to 15 minutes meeting daily to do an overview of important events and/or issues pertaining to scholars,staff, etc. In the office heavy traffic and interactions assisting parents, scholars,visitors and staff. Strategically plan the day to day while planning out and preparing for the upcoming events. Weekly meetings with my supervisees.
Workplace culture: Teaching scholars to be respectful and leaders of tomorrow.
The hardest part of my job was speaking in front of large crowds.
The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with the Scholars.
Great benefits and perks, great staff events
Very early start of the day. lenghty monthly meetings

Alot of cleaning and sometimes heavy lifting. always making sure school is safe and secure. Making sure students are safe and secure.But teachers and students are easy to get along with sometimes a bit fast paced but managable, Can be a bit unorganized and a bit confusing but other wise good.
Supervisor (Current Employee) – Bronx, NY – October 11, 2017
I was newer to education when I started at Equality. I have learned so much over my career there. I have become better organized so that I have improved work/life balance, which I struggled with when I started out. I find the job extremely rewarding and I enjoy what I do each day.
The most enjoyable part of the job is the kids and relationships between staff. There is definitely a family/community vibe at Equality that I never experienced anywhere else I've ever worked.
the kids, the support you get from other staff/supervisors, focus on improving academics of the students
High School Teacher (Current Employee) – Bronx, NY – August 6, 2017
Equality is a very unique educational world since they want to create their own systems and expectations different from their competitors. They need to work on developing there managing staff, and eliminate the redundant headaches.
Need a better balance of worklife and home life. Better hours for staff who have families.
Teacher (Former Employee) – Bronx, NY – January 24, 2015
Run away as fast as you can! The new principal at the middle school is unsupportive and sets her staff up for failure. While the compensation is fair, the way the staff are treated is not. There is a very high turn over rate with the teachers.
