Mission Driven Organization!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Aspire Public Schools full-time for more than 10 years

ProsI love working for Aspire because all of the teammates are focused on the mission and vision. We are preparing students to earn a college degree. As a child of a parent who went to college and one who did not, I have seen first hand how college is a game changer!

I have been fortunate to work for Aspire for the past twelve years and been given the opportunity to wear several hats.

ConsI don't have anything to complain about! This is a great place to have a career as an educator.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Absolutely no work-personal life balance!

Elementary Teacher (Current Employee)
Los Angeles, CA (US)

I have been working at Aspire Public Schools full-time for less than a year


Pros: They care about helping kids achieve and get to college. They… Cons: There is no balance between work and personal life. My nights and weekends are spent lesson planning. Everything (and I mean everything) must be made… Advice to Senior Management: Give your teachers more practical resources to help planning, stop having so many… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
