  2. 1.0
    Former Employee, more than 1 year

    Good for beginner's experience, but not sustainable long term.

    Sep. 14, 2021 - Teacher in Toronto, ON
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Students are kind and are fun to work with - Field trips, special events made some work days special - Teachers are generally trusted with creating their own lesson plans and aren't micro managed when it comes to the learning materials

    Cons

    - Managament is disorganized and expects teachers to go above and beyond for what is very low wages - Strategies and expectations are unclear, or only explained after mistakes were made (because staff was not made aware of them, sometimes students know of changes before staff does) - Student grades are fudged or changed - No overtime pay, no benefits, teachers are expected to work throughout their lunch breaks and 15 minute break to supervise students outside, also expected to work Saturdays and weekends w/o overtime -Little support, little pay, no opportunity for growth, no positivity. In the end, it is not sustainable for someone who wants to advance their career, it is only good for some teaching experience if you need it

    Pros

    They take some disciplinary action against the kids.

    Cons

    - They fudge grades - Management doesn’t understand plagiarism - All hard work and expertise unappreciated - No benefits - Low pay - Botton line is money since it’s a private school - not what is right or in the students’ best interests - High school teachers are made to supervise elementary students during recess, etc.

    Do not work here

    Oct. 1, 2019 - Teacher in Toronto, ON
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Leaving the school was the only pro of my experience

    Cons

    This school needs to be shut down. If you are a woman working at the school, you will be blamed for everything you do. Students will get away with bad behaviour. You get no admin support and you end up paying out of your own pocket to pay for resources.

    Human Rights Violations -avoid!!

    Dec. 2, 2018 - English Teacher in Toronto, ON
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Other new teachers became friends

    Cons

    At the boys’ school, female teachers faced daily sexual, verbal, and emotional harassment from the students and the management victim-blamed them and told them to “wear longer skirts” (longer than knee-length). Male teachers are respected and are allowed to get away with behaviour (yelling at students) that the women were swiftly penalized for. Toxic environment for women -avoid!!
