Queen's Grant Community School Wins Schools of Excellence Award

Press Release

8/7/2014

MINT HILL, N.C., August 7, 2014—National Heritage Academies (NHA), one of the nation’s largest charter school management companies, awarded Queen’s Grant Community School with three Eagle Awards. This is the 14th year NHA honored its top performing schools with Eagle Awards.
 
Queen’s Grant Community School earned an Eagle Award for Schools of Excellence which means the school had superior performance in academic achievement and full enrollment for the 2012-2013 school year.
 
Principal Christy Morrin reacted to the award by saying, “Our entire staff is committed to academic excellence so it feels great to receive this honor. This is also an award for the students who come to school every day ready to learn and take on new challenges.”
 
Queen’s Grant also brought home the Eagle Award for Student Attendance meaning the school achieved outstanding student attendance with less than 27 percent of students absent eight days or more, as well as the Eagle Award for Student Enrollment. NHA encourages strong student attendance because less days missed equals more learning time in the classroom.
 
Along with Schools of Excellence, Student Attendance and Student Enrollment, NHA rewards schools in other areas including:   First Year Teacher Effectiveness, Employee Engagement, Parent Satisfaction, and Academic Growth.
 
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.
 
National Heritage Academies is a charter school management company operating 76 schools in nine states for the 2013-2014 school year. It is currently serving more than 50,000 students in grades kindergarten through eighth.
