This is my senior year at New Century, and though you might think I would be more than excited about graduating and leaving high school strictly to my memories, it's quite a bittersweet event. Before NCTHS, I had never attended, nor heard of, a school where the teachers treat you like actual human beings. The teachers truly care about their students and actually help them, not just view them as a ticket to a paycheck. NC is the first school I have gone to consecutively since elementary school, and with good reason. Since (almost) every student strives for a good education and life of happiness, we get along and work together as more of a family than just a class. Being a small school, we know each other's names, we help each other, and we all want to be able to hug each other after walking across the stage in May. To any parent of a future student reading this, I highly recommend you enroll your child. Take it from a student getting ready to leave, the experience is great, the teachers are wonderful and clearly know what they are doing, and, all around, it is truly a wonderful school.
