Compensation and Total Rewards Philosophy

Our Compensation and Total Rewards philosophy is guided by four principles:

Student-Achievement Focused

Our compensation and total rewards philosophy is grounded in student achievement and the attainment of organizational goals.

Clarity and Transparency

Our structure is clear and transparent so that staff understand what comprises their compensation, see the range they can potentially earn, and understand their total rewards (benefits and recognition opportunities).


We strive to offer competitive compensation and rewards that meet or exceed regional charters and districts. Staff compensation is commensurate with each individual’s experience, educational credentials, and responsibilities. A fair and competitive compensation and total rewards structure is aligned with our Best Place to Work and Learn commitment.


We regularly review data and compensation processes to ensure staff do not experience differences in their compensation based on gender, race, and other demographic factors.

Our Compensation and Total Rewards Package is designed to reward your commitment to delivering a high-quality education.

Friendship’s investment in you goes beyond a competitive salary to include comprehensive benefits, restorative Paid Time Off (PTO), a friendly and collaborative working environment, work-life sustainability, career development, and recognition for exceptional individual and school performance.

Total rewards benefits at a glance: Benefits for full-time staff include health (3 options), vision, dental, disability and life insurance, commuter, and flex-spending benefits. We match up to 2% of a staff member’s contribution to our 403(b)-retirement program.

Staff recognition programs include: Educational/Lifelong Learner, Staff Longevity, School Performance, Teacher of the Year (TOY) and CEO Choice Award.
