Teacher (Current Employee) –  New York, NYJuly 26, 2018
This school use to be a great school . Now the school has new administration that are very cold hearted people. It’s no true care for the students. It’s some students that had 7 teachers in one school year and this is ok to the principal. Each class has 2 teachers but it’s really one teacher that does the work. Do yourself a favor and don’t apply this school isn’t even Guaranteed a renewal for the next couple of years.
Pros
It’s none
Cons
Everything

Toxic environment/ don't waste your time
Teacher (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJuly 26, 2018
Toxic work environment. Administration hires individuals with very little skill set because they are cheap. Don't waste your time. The principal is a poor manager who brings in her friends who are lazy to work for the company.

Working at any Charter School is hard work, but GCCS is Great
Administrator Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Harlem, NYJune 9, 2018
Staff are generally given, much like charters themselves, autonomy and accountability. New leadership this year has really improved the academics of the school and created better conditions for people to work in. The kids are great - they can stress you out, but they're great.

As an independent charter, there's no CMO mothership to provide administrative services from central office. Workplace culture is generally open - you can give feedback without fear of retribution (now, wasn't always the case), but often times decisions are made without seeking enough input. Thats leadership, i guess.

Overall i'd recommend it as a place to work. people tend to think the grass is greener somewhere else, but join the team and start watering lol
Pros
Coffee (bustelo!) is made every morning! a simple but fantastic gesture
Cons
leadership transition is hard anywhere, but its headed in the right direction

School needs improvement in management. Lacks structure and expectations for students which increase behavior problems.
School Counselor (Current Employee) –  New York, NYFebruary 5, 2018
The school needs to take more time to invest in hiring good quality certified teachers who have better classroom management skills. Teachers do not receive enough support and training from Administration and job coaches. There needs to be more of a focus on how to improve every department in the school instead treating employees as if their in a dictatorship.
Cons
No 401K, lack of good quality benefits. Low salaries
