I am a student here, and for the most part I like it here. There isn't much drama or bullying and people are pretty friendly. The teachers manage to make learning new things interesting and are super nice. Some things are over hyped here, like the book fair and fundraisers. The thing that disturbs me, and a lot of other students, is that we can't tell a teacher or another staff member when a "special" student is being very annoying and won't leave us alone. If we do we're always told "He/she doesn't know he/she's doing it."

I am a student at NPMS currently, the teachers can teach very well and do so. They have high goals for you but something disturbs me about it. The kids who are "special" and who act out, will often be favored. For example, one time I had to do a run during gym and as I'm in the lead, a special kid takes the lead and just purposely trips, and even though the gym teacher saw the whole thing, and she still said "You better stop harrasing Dylan orelse I will put you in a different class." Kids, don't let special kids fool you. I'm not saying all special kids are liars, but lookout for a few.

Our school has the most dedicated teachers in the country and are not afraid to challange our students both in the classroom and outside of it. They produce well educated students who are also great citizens!

This is one of the best schools in the state! The level of education is very high. I am very impressed with the choir/band departments and art. They offer a wide variety of sports as well. It is a very well-rounded school and education is very important!
