    I worked at National Heritage Academies full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good benefits. Elevator worked for half of the year.

    Cons

    Administrators are not adequately trained. Some that I have experienced might not have the correct certification (a Special Education degree) or training but are promoted to be the Dean of that very department. Additionally, as a new employee, I was left "out of the loop" because I was not a part of the right clique. Also, my administrators and day-to-day colleagues were not forthcoming with information. I felt like I was playing 20 questions most of the time trying to figure out exactly the extent of my commitments before and after school. I witnessed teachers getting written up for petty things such as carrying a bottle of water around (the teacher was pregnant and the school had no air conditioning). The students tended to get into physical fist fights with each other and had no issue threatening teachers. Students get written up 85 times before the administrator decides that something should be done. School lunches for the students are horrible and lends to their poor attitude towards NHA schools. Many students used to complain coming back from the lunch room that they felt like they were being fed like an inmate.

    Lack of supplies was stunning. National Heritage's philosophy is good in theory but does not play out within the school. Teachers scream at the students (sometimes with obscenities). Very hostile environment among students with staff, staff with staff, and staff with administrators. I brought home $845 every two weeks and think I could have made that much working at McDonalds or some other fast food place.

    No room for promotions. Loads of after school commitments. No over-time pay or extra stipends for supplies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No room for upward mobility unless you are in the correct clique. Administrators act like they want to hear what the teachers, parents and students have to say as to how to improve the school, but choose something completely opposite. Many new Deans only taught in a classroom for 5 yrs or less and expect that the teachers who have already been in the classroom for 10 yrs and above should have to attend all of the 1st year teacher training events.
