    I worked at New Frontiers Charter School full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The students and parents were fantastic to work with. Most of the teachers were some of the hardest working, upstanding, and honest people who I have had the opportunity to work with.

    Cons

    Extremely poor leadership and support. Lots of unpaid extra responsibilities such as Saturday school or after-school events which are "expected". Little to no recognition for high performance and loyalty.

    Advice to Management

    Stop pretending to care about students, staff, and the community when all you care is about the bottom line and looking good to TEA. Need to retain high-performing, loyal teachers. New name and merge is putting lipstick on a pig.

    I worked at New Frontiers Charter School full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    New Frontiers has small classes and a small community of peers and staff. It's a friendly environment and people are helpful. It's great if you want independence and the chance to be creative and innovative.

    Cons

    Since it's a small school, there's less structure than a bigger school. Many things, like a behavior system, are still in progress and continuously changing.

    Advice to Management

    Always support your teachers and give positive feedback.

    I worked at New Frontiers Charter School part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The teachers and other staff are excellent. Teachers seem to be treated nicely.

    Cons

    Absolutely no discipline for a student's bad behavior. Students can destroy property and not be punished for it. Teachers are told to not send students to the office for horrible conduct.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of problem students so the teachers can do their jobs with no opposition from problem students.

    I worked at New Frontiers Charter School

    Pros

    NFCS has a teaching staff that is there for the children.

    Cons

    The belief from some working there that it is good enough for that student population.
