    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Head-Royce School part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    beautiful campus, awesome and supportive immediate colleagues.

    Cons

    change is slow, lots of extra meetings and committees. No collaboration between divisions. poor communication between divisions.

    Advice to Management

    to truly respect and promote balancing work and wellbeing, we need to change our fundamental structure of the school: scheduling, meetings, committees, communication between divisions...etc.

    Upper School Teacher Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Head-Royce School (Oakland, CA (US)) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I talked with an administrator over the phone. Then I visited the school for about 1 hour, talked with a small group of teachers about the job. I will be doing another interview, so I don't know yet what the final results will be, but I will give a sample lesson.

    Interview Questions

    • How my knowledge and experience would fit what the job required. Whether I like to work with other teachers. What my experience with independent schools was. How much content knowledge I had (what my degree of expertise was in the subject area).   1 Answer
