Dedicated to Staff and Students

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Aspire Public Schools

ProsAspire is among the most collaborative educational environments one could hope to work. They support and provide professional development and have high expectations for teacher and student performance.

ConsThe human resources and information technology departments have, at least in my case, proved themselves in need of improved communications, more detail oriented work habits and less mistake-prone staffing.

Advice to Senior ManagementTeachers and students are obviously the meat and potatoes of a charter school organization but I don't think the service provided by administrative departments should suffer as a result.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
