Teacher in New York, NY
on May 21, 2022
I've worked at WHIN for 2 school years, the organization is unorganized and there is no plan of action for students when it comes to discipline and academics. A 4th grade class has had 4 different teachers. To save money, they have rated all certified, knowledgeable teachers as undetermined and kept new teachers who are not certified. None of the kids are on level and won't be because this school is the worse.

As someone who has taught at multiple schools in different cities, I've seen the absolute best and worst of schools. WHIN is, by far, the most disorganized and chaotic one I have ever worked at. This school serves a difficult population, which can be done effectively if administration is on their game. If you read through all the reviews of this place, you'll see the number one complaint is administration, and there's good reason for that. The Executive Director, Principal, and Director of School Culture all should be fired for their incompetence and complete inability to manage a difficult school setting. Very little help is ever given to teachers, except when they need someone to blame. Teachers live in fear of administration and their "gotcha" style of management. Your 8 hour school day (yes, the kids are in class for 8 hours!) will be chaotic from start to finish. The school has almost no defined routines and procedures, which should be the most fundamental part of running a challenging school. You'll feel like you're just surviving to the end of the day with no help. This feeling leads to massive staff turnover, which creates even more chaos as staff come and go throughout the school year. When a school is filled with brand new teachers will little to no experience year-after-year, that is a big red flag.I turned down what would have been a much better teaching offer to come here. During my interview, they did a very good job of selling me this grand vision of progressive education that really made a difference. The reality could not be any farther from the truth. Just look at all the reviews here and on other sites. It isn't worth the stress to come here.

Working here I was fortunate enough to build relationships with some other great and supportive teachers! Leadership however, is highly unsupportive, often contradicting the mission of the school, and even verbally abusive at times. Teachers and support staff do their best to put kids and families needs at the forefront, but are continually shut down by administration. I have often witnessed racial discrimination in the severity of consequences for the same behaviors. This school says it is progressive, but there is nothing progressive or even student friendly happening here. Everything is done with "image" as the top priority. The teacher turn-over rate is extremely high (30 teachers in 3 years!) Please use caution when interviewing or accepting a job here.
