Queen's Grant Community School Earns Two Eagle Awards from National Heritage Academies

Press Release


GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., Nov. 21, 2013 — National Heritage Academies (NHA), one of the nation’s largest charter school management companies, awarded Queen’s Grant Community School with two Eagle Awards at its annual ceremony Monday, Nov. 18.
Queen’s Grant Community School, located in Mint Hill, N.C., earned an Eagle Award for Employee Engagement which means more than 75 percent of employees are considered engaged using the Hewitt 6 measure on the spring employee survey. Engaged teachers leads to more effective learning in the classroom. In 2012-13, Queen's Grant outperformed the local district in both math and reading. 
Queen’s Grant Community School Principal Christy Morrin reacted to the award by saying, “We work hard at Queen’s Grant Community School to ensure everyone remains deeply involved and enthusiastic when it comes to student learning. It feels good knowing the staff is engaged in their work and giving 100 percent in the classroom every day so our students can reach their academic goals.”
Along with Employee Engagement, Queen’s Grant Community School also earned an Eagle Award for State Accountability.
This is the 13th year NHA honored its top performing schools with Eagle Awards. NHA rewards schools in eight areas including: Employee Engagement, Parent Satisfaction, Academic Growth, Enrollment and Attrition, State Accountability, Taking Flight, Soaring to New Heights, and School of the Year.
NHA’s system of schools is designed to eliminate achievement gaps and provide school choice to families, with the clear objective of preparing children for success in high school, college, and beyond.
For the 2013-2014 school year, NHA is serving more than 50,000 students in 76 schools in nine states.
