    I worked at National Heritage Academies full-time (More than 5 years)


    Everything is student focused in an effort to provide each child with opportunity. Pay structure was recently overhauled to pay teachers a higher wage. Healthcare coverage is also really really competitive. Support from corporate is second to none. Most of the schools are beautiful facilities and are maintained better than any public school I've seen. Not all NHA schools are high performing but NHA has started to hold underperforming schools more accountable and increase support to help turn things around. Nha certainly isn't perfect but there are many reasons that it's a good company and one that will not soon disappear.


    Most employees get overworked. That includes corporate employees and school employees.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at National Heritage Academies in April 2015.


    Interview 1: The recruiter was very helpful. She gave me advice for ways to prepare for the second interview. She explained the job, school, salary, and benefits. Within a week I received a call from the principal with an invitation to come in for an interview. Interview 2: The principal and one dean met with me. They were pleasant and thorough. I sensed an immediate rapport with both of them. Within a week I received an email inviting me back for a brief meeting with other faculty. Interview 3: I was placed in a room with several other people, who I assumed were faculty. They were applicants for other positions at the school. I was called back to a different room and met with two specials teachers. The interview lastest about ten minutes and I was cut off in the middle of my answer because another applicant was ready to come in. As I was leaving I spoke briefly to the principal, who said there was one more step in the process.
