Horrible School
Teacher (Current Employee) –  Woodbridge, ON11 July 2019
King Heights Academy is a horrible job environment for any teacher to further their career in. This school sets up teachers for failure. The director of this school has absolutely no idea what it means to be a teacher or yet alone run a school. As a teacher you are not allowed to do many things a normal teacher should be allowed to do. Also this job posting indicates that the salary is between 30000-50000. Teachers at this school all make different salaries however no one has exceeded 390000 and this is with putting in 5+ years within this school. The director does not allow for a reference letter for your future endeavours either.

The work environment is so hostile and every coordinator, principal and most teachers are two faced and talk behind everyones back. The director of the school cares more about the appearance of teachers and the school than she actually does for the children's education.

The school lacks resources and everything is falling apart. Students have limited to no manipulative's for their lessons. The art room of this school is a joke and barely has any working glue.

I do not recommend any teacher to work here.

Wonderful IB Experience
IB French Teacher (Former Employee) –  Vaughan2 February 2015
A typical day at work would be collaborative meetings with other teachers on IB units of study and evaluation. IB is a holistic approach to learning and all teachers work together in order to successfully complete a unit of study, reflective of the theme of study. Each unit would last approximately 4-6 weeks, depending on the theme of the unit.

It was the first year of opening for King Heights Academy, therefore, management was at the trial and error stage when regular school policies were tested and then implemented. At times, the implementation would be re-evaluated as Ontario and IB standards would not work cohesively with management decisions.

Given that all units of study had to be collaboratively discussed, my co-workers were always approachable and open-minded in discussing new approaches to teaching.

The hardest part of the job was sometimes convincing management of tangible and hands-on experience to teaching as only approaching teaching through textbook scenarios. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing students enjoying French and retaining the language.
