A fun environment with impossible expectations
Assistant Teacher (Former Employee) –  Northbrook, ILMarch 13, 2019
KSL has a wonderful environment designed to foster fun in the classroom, but this comes at the expense of the teaching staff. As an assistant I was expected to manage up to 3 classrooms simultaneously, a nigh impossible task when multiple classes needed help at the same time.
Pros
Positive attitudes from other teachers
Cons
The company expects too much out of its teachers, with too few resources to assist them.

Profiteers with a veneer of education
Team Member (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILAugust 18, 2018
For all the talk about teaching and education and a kid-centric approach, the truth is this organization seeks only to duplicate the mental image the owners have of their business. It's not a bad image, but it's an impossible standard to meet and you're always guessing as to what management wants. Fun and exciting stops being fun and exciting when it becomes less a function of the job and space and more a demand placed on employees.

If you like working with kids it is an amazing place to look into
Assistant Teacher (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILMay 20, 2018
The day started at 8am every day and ended at around 5pm every day so there are very consistent hours. If you you want to teach science topics to kids, this is the place in Chicago do it.
Pros
Staff is very frendly
Cons
On your feet almost the whole day
