Mine was a little different. I left a so-so gig to start a program completely from scratch (as opposed to a new school with kids that have been taught previously). I know exactly what I was getting into, and even then there were fights with students, admin, and parents who did not understand the band culture.
15 years later...I'm now director of bands. Still fights here and there (mostly with admin with all this covid stuff), but the program has grown steadily both in numbers and culture.
I can't tell you what to do. Just weigh the good and bad and make your choice. I would, however, recommend you at least try to stick it out for this year.
