This school portrays it's self as and all girls school but then they turn around and allow boys to come in the school and mingle with the girls,they want to have it both ways TOTALLY MIS-LEADING.This school has a bully problem and they won't address it for fear it would ruin there so-called perfect image and they'd loose Big Money Donors.My daughters grades dropped 20 points since enrolling in this school and she's barely passing.The teachers are mean to my daughter and to me and totally UNCARING to the point where they made my daughter cry.I've spent a ton of money sending my daughter to this school and it was totally a waste of my MONEY.DEFINETLY NEVER SEND YOUR DAUGHTER HERE.THEY DON'T CARE!!! This school is totally overated with no Morals, they claim there a religous school and a all girls school but guys are constantly in the school harassing the girls and they feel it's perfectly o.k.
It has been the number one high school in the WNY for a long time. The school's commitment to the academic, spiritual, character and emotional development is unmatched. There is no better place for a young woman's education than at Nardin.
Academics are great except some bio and chem teachers. They know their stuff but aren't tuned in to kids and so...it's tough sometimes. All else is great, the English department must be one of the best anywhere. Math is good but they need AP Calc BC. Sports are very competitive. Arts program is good, but all music lessons are paid for by you. Parent involvement is good. Principal is excellent. Tuition is tough, in my 10+ yr association w/Nardin tuition has more than doubled.
The curriculum at Nardin High School is extremely rigorous but prepares students for college. The school tends to be stressful, but the endless amounts of homework truly mold the young women into very wise, well-rounded citizens. On a positive note, the majority of girls who attend Nardin love it mainly because of the friendships they develop over the four year period. My daughter would never leave Nardin Academy, and she has developed strong relationships with her teachers as well. The principal is excellent and the extracurriculars are highly competitive. I know the all-girls school may upset some, but it teaches the girls to be independent. I feel that when my daughter graduates, she will leave with one of the best educations in the country as well as a feeling of self-confidence to serve her well in the real world. I highly recommend this school for all girls searching for a challenge!
