Top Workplaces USA celebrates organizations with 150 or more employees that have built great cultures. Over 42,000 organizations were invited to participate in the Top Workplaces USA survey. Winners of the Top Workplaces USA list are chosen based solely on employee feedback gathered through an employee engagement survey, issued by Energage.  Results are calculated by comparing the survey’s research-based statements, including 15 Culture Drivers that are proven to predict high performance against industry benchmarks.

GOAL High School provides a supportive and inclusive work environment. Staff have a collective dedication to developing productive members of society; we prioritize collaboration, respect, growth, and we work to maintain an atmosphere where students and employees feel valued, empowered, and inspired. At GOAL, our culture isn’t just about work. It’s about purpose, passion, commitment, and about making a lasting impact that extends far beyond the classroom.”
