Secondary level ELA Teacher in Glocester, RI
Boys with Disabilities
Although Harmony School was very challenging and stressful, it gave me much experience in working with boys who have serious behavior disorders. There was no exact curriculum format, so teachers were given plenty of space to be creative in their teaching.

Working with the boys knowing that you're appreciated was the best part about the job and some staff were great to work with

Its not the job, but the people
I loved my job. The kids were wonderful; education was great, even the youth care staff were, for the most part, caring individuals; even of we didn"t always see eye to eye on everything. However, working under a tyrannical sociopath was so stressful I just couldn't take it. It was constant stress, constant fear, and constant disrespect. I would literally cry most drives home
Supervisor in Rhode Island
It’s about the almighty dollar and the culture starts from the top. They promote people based on favoritism not based on education or job performance. Example they let a college educated employee walk out the door for a better opportunity. Then promoted an employee with a high school degree to a supervisor position. They promoted an employee who worked there for 15 years to run their accreditation’s this is a masters level position. The employee they promoted no college education.

Not worth it
Harmony hill has such great potential to be an amazing facility. From the outside looking in everything seems to be in place. But let me give you an inside view after working there for over 5 years. The most rewarding part is working with the youth and helping them overcome daily struggles. Once you build meaningful relationships with them leaving is tough. However the higher ups are a nightmare. Not all of course but most. There is a huge turn over rate. People are quitting just as fast as they are hired & they are constantly short staffed. But for some strange reason directors and supervisors seem to remain the same. Reason is because they make the rules but break them and they are allowed to as there is no consequence. If you challenge anything they say you become an instant target. Also don’t bother going to HR because everything gets swept under the rug if you file a complaint against someone who is in a higher position than you. They will flat out disrespect you in front of the youth, staff or parents and see nothing wrong with their actions. Paperwork goes missing and they will lie to protect themselves. If they aren’t a fan of a particular youth that youth stands no chance of being successful in their program. They are chatty, rude, disrespectful and extremely unprofessional. I would not recommend this job to anyone, you are worth more than this place will ever make you feel.
