I worked at National Heritage Academies full-time

Pros

The health insurance is awesome! Staff is given rewards(snacks,etc.) regularly. Small Class Sizes. Great teamwork and staff support, mentoring available

Cons

Short lunches, minimal lesson planning times, weekly observations with evaluations. Teachers are expected to stay late and babysit after school if their students are not picked up at dismissal (45 min. at times). Work at least 50 hours a week. New paperwork or educational fads to be followed every couple months. Excessive testing, too many meetings, no work days, staff is treated different

Advice to Management

Compensate or have realistic expectations for staff, hire more staff for extra work, delegate professional duties appropriately, treat staff the same, longer lunch breaks, hold parents accountable for school involvement and picking up their kids on time, and stop using staff as a parental supplement for out of school life

    I worked at National Heritage Academies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy to get hired. The hiring process is very Easy and quick. The company seems to be willing to promote within.

    Cons

    The company expect workers to work over time and not get paid and or compensated. Significant problems with balancing work hours and home life. Staff are expected to come in early and stay late on a regular basis. Employees are expected to use the time card to sign in and out every time you come into the building, leave for lunch and leave at the end of the day. Employees are monitored closely if you take more than 30 minute lunch. The company has an "at will" status which means they can fire employees at anytime.

    I worked at National Heritage Academies full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great team of fellow teachers, very nice facilities, engaged parents.

    Cons

    Too much paperwork entering grades on too many inconsequential parameters, making it confusing for parents and too labor intensive for teachers, with very little, if any, added insight into how the student is performing relative to peers.

    Advice to Management

    Less paperwork and computer entry of meaningless statistics on a host of irrelevant parameters.
