Stressful place to work
Elementary Longterm Substitute Teacher (Current Employee) –  San Jose, CAMay 25, 2017
My background is with school districts not charter school systems. This was a mismatch for me. The hours are extremely long even for a substitute position. The schools are very small for the number of students present. The number of days for PD's are much more than a traditional district. Vacation time is less because of this.
Pros
friendly people, healthcare
Cons
top-down management with little professional trust

Do Not Believe the HYPE!!!
Teacher (Former Employee) –  Nashville-Davidson, TNJanuary 3, 2017
Rocketship is a California based company that has expanded to Nashville...and let's just say they have NO clue as to how to accommodate the different demographics.Leadership in both the network and school levels is far-removed, inconsistent, and incompetent. They win you over with high compensation, and the promise of support/coaching but this is totally erroneous. There is no structured discipline, which allows children to run a muck!! And definitely no real investment in the children because the turn-over rate is like nothing I've ever seen. In 3 years of opening this school has had to replenish over half the staff each year with people steadily leaving. Apply at your own risk!!!
Pros
Pay
Cons
Poor Leadership, no work/family balance

Teachers not a priority
STEM Educator (Former Employee) –  San Jose, CAAugust 7, 2015
At Rocketship, there is a lot said about teacher retention, but with demanding hours and goals, little is done.

The demands of the "Network" are put heavily on administrators who in turn must convey these demands to their teachers and staff, creating a toxic environment at times.
