Hi,

Yes I'm familiar with the school, I believe they operate in Rybnik and Zory, maybe one or two other towns in that region.

I lived in that area for two years, I never actually worked for this school but I know a number of the teachers there and they all seem happy.

Not sure what teaching methods are used or the pay, but I know that there is a strong team spirit and atmosphere at the school, a good social side as well. I regularly socialised with the teachers from this school.

If you are looking for work in that area of the country then I would say it's a solid choice. Especially if you are first time in Poland or a first time teacher generally.

On the flipside, whilst Rybnik and Zory have their charms, the local girls are lovely for example, they aren't very glamorous towns compared to the bigger cities. Also in smaller towns pay is generally lower (although so are expenses) and private work can be harder to come by.

But yeah overall I would say it is a good school. Many of the native speakers who teach there have been at the school for quite a while, which is a good indication in my opinion.

I see they are advertising again, which seems to be a regular occurrence for them.

That always raises the red flag for me.

I may be wrong and would love to hear any experience of this school.
