Parent Ambassador (Former Employee) – Mount Morris, MI – September 13, 2017
I accepted this position when my children started going to this school. I acted as a go between the parents and teachers during many conflicts. I traveled to many sites recruiting new students to our school.
Special Education Parapro (Former Employee) – Muskegon, MI – September 6, 2017
The kids need to be managed better. The staff is great but they don't really get much support with student behaviors or discipline. They tend to let the students run the school which wears on very good teachers.
Special Education Paraprofessional (Former Employee) – Greensboro, NC – August 31, 2017
The teachers at Greensboro Academy are dedicated and very student focused. In general, it is a supportive environment to work in where parents are engaged in their child's education. Some support positions are not adequately staffed.
Students, teachers and parents are focused and engaged in education

TALENT ACQUISITION COORDINATOR (Former Employee) – Grand Rapids, MI – August 20, 2017
Each of the team members were given different expectation, we would look to each other for advice and would get scolded for small things. Management played favorites and will hold one mistake over your head for a year. they promise advancement, but most jobs are dead ends.
Teacher (Former Employee) – Durham, NC – July 19, 2017
I have 17 years of experience teaching in 3 states in private and public schools and NHA was by far my worst experience. As a teacher, you are expected to do a ridiculous amount of work that does not enhance the success of your students. Teachers have: INADEQUATE planning time and no work/life balance. The school is run by people who in general have no formal education background, yet they feel free to criticize your teaching practices and lesson planning. So many times I was told how I would teach my class and write my lesson plans, but the directives were not consistent with best practices in education. Testing was KING in the building, not student learning. Resources were also very limited. One could argue that funds were not available to run a school effectively. Many times throughout the school year, we had no paper or toner for the copy machine, along with other basic supplies.
benefits and coworkers, my students
home/work balance, ineffective leadership, lack of resources
Substitute Teacher (Former Employee) – Grand Rapids, MI – July 3, 2017
A typical day's work included going into the classroom where I will be subbing, reading through lesson plan and additional material that I would need during the day, then putting the plan into action. I learned that each day was always different and that each set of students required a new plan.
Special Education Data Manager (Former Employee) – Grand Rapids, MI – June 27, 2017
NHA has a mission and vision that all employees work toward. The atmosphere is team-oriented and feels like a true family. Everyone gives 100% and management does a great job recognizing employees for their efforts.
