Approves of CEO

I have been working at National Heritage Academies part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Really works to achieve highly satisfied employee rating.

Cons

As with most schools, salaries are low, and teachers are overworked. What affects me directly is there is no acknowledgement of the support staff.

Advice to Management

Currently, support positions are overlooked in terms of professional development and incentives. Would like to see more opportunities for training that will help to sharpen current and/or add new skills. Would also like the opportunity to receive incentives in the way of bonuses when school-wide goals are achieved, as is available for the teachers.

    I worked at National Heritage Academies full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -Good training
    -Good teaching resources
    -Great for students and parents
    -Standardized classroom rules/expectations

    Cons

    -NO FREE TIME (most teachers work 12 hour days and they tend to take away your prep)
    -Extremely overwork their teachers (often taking evenings and weekends)
    -Compensation (one of lowest)
    -Ostracization (if you do not put in all the expected time, you WILL feel ostracized)
    -High turn over rate for good reason (see reviews made by teachers)

    Advice to Management

    I love the new teacher training and resources available. I really felt ready to teach after receiving my orientation.

    However, the teachers are very overworked at this company with some of the lowest compensation packages I've ever come across. Many teachers I've spoken with have made statement such as "I have not been able to spend time with my son for weeks."

    Simply put: your teachers are overworked to a level I have never seen before. You will continue seeing high turn over rates because of this.
