NHS teaches and thinks outside of the box. There are no text books, no hard and fast curriculum. If you are looking for student centered education, look no further. The only qualms come from a lack of testing/study skills as the students move to h.s., however all students seem to catch up in h.s. and a more structured environment. They all seem to excel beyond their peers after a semester.

Exceeds private schools in the area in terms of effective teaching, advanced and special needs curriculumn, character and talent of staff-admin. Students are remarkable in terms of community involvement, leadership, high-school/university placement. IEPs prepared professionally. Great mix of ethnic, economic and geographic families. Teacher/student ratios ideal.

Not sure what these couple of poor ratings are all about - maybe a single disgruntled parent posting numerous time? Possibly a parent that is not involved in volunteering at the school? I absolutely love this school! Wonderful learning atmosphere - excellent teachers and Principal Sweet is a fantastic guy that is a 100% advocate for the kids. Majority of residents move here because of the school. Don't listen to the disgruntled few!!!

This is not a good school. This is for special education only. If your child is at an advanced level academically this IS NOT the place for you. The entire program is set up to service special ed - so your child will not receive a regular, competitive education -- he/she will be taught at a special ed (IEP) level. Pricipal Sweet is the more unlikable, horrible principal. He does not believe parents have ANY say in their kids education. If you don't do it his and the the teacher way - you will not be welcomed. HORRIBLE school.

There is a lot of potential at NHS; however, don't let the press fool you. The principal is a bully who will do just about anything to get his own way while putting up a sickly-sweet front. While I do believe that most of the teachers have the best interests of the kids at heart, many of them are more cliquey than the kids are!

Very impressed with the school so far. Have had my daughter in two private schools. Neither can compare to the education that my son is now receiving in this wonderful public school. Congratulations on a job well done!

Our two children have attended NHS since kindergarten. The staff is well trained, caring and dedicated to student's academic as well as social growth. Our oldest has just started his first year of high school and is finding that he is well prepared both academically and organizationally for the fast paced, academically rigorous program he is in. The class sizes at NHS are small, the curriculum nurtures critical thinking and problem solving skills. Each child's learning style is considered and I always feel that the teachers have my child's best interests at heart. Numerous extracurricular activites are offered. The annual school play is impressive each year with over 60 students involved. There is something for everyone at NHS. NHS is an excellent school!
