    "My daughter went to NHS all four years. She took AP history and AP English. She hardly ever had homework. She did great on her SAT scores. We thought she was ready for college. However when she got there she was never taught how to write a paper. How to do the research or to site and how to format a paper. For a student who got good grades and was going to her counselor to make she was on the write path, the teachers did not do their job, luckily my husband was able to teach her and help her with her first paper be cause she had no clue on how to do a paper. It was a long weekend but he taught her cause teachers did not!!! Unacceptable!"

    "The academics at the school are excellent. The way some of the sports programs are coached on the other hand leaves a lot to be desired. In many instances, it is a good old boy-network where if you and your family aren't juiced in your child probably won't have a fair shake at participation. My child's coach fostered inappropriate treatment of my child and others and has actively participated in gossip about other parents and children on the team that they have had issues with. Recommend the school for academics, SGA, Class Council, FBLA and some sports. I would suggest that you do your research on the particular sport's program your child is interested in before they tryout or it could be detrimental to their well-being."

    "It looks like a lot has changed. I went to NHS 15 years ago and it was a joke. I was completely unprepared for college. I don't even remember doing any work there. It was overcrowded with unqualified teachers teaching core subjects. Hopefully things have indeed changed. I had a great time in my high school years but definitely did not get a quality education from NHS."

    "The school is great but old. It is supposed to be replaced on site in 2014. Sports are o.k. Our son was well prepared for the SATs. Science and math were notable high points."

    "This school has its ups and downs just like any other normal school, but this school has taught me so much! In every subject and the teachers can be a bit mean at times but if you are on their good sides then they will help so much! The school as a whole has great students & staff. But the school building needs to be rebuilt because the hallways and everything is so small!"
