    "I live across the street. NTHS is probably the worst school in the United States. Fewer than TWO PERCENT of graduates are ready for college and I would wager that a significantly greater percent will spend time in prison. It is that awful. Admin told me they had a good business program; no it doesn't. It is a terrible, rotten school."

    "This school is awful, it's a good thing there's closing down, as the parents can't even get the info they need to find out how their children are doing, with their classes, grades, etc. Parents are calling all the time but can't get through, and if the children won't let the parents know, how else are they to find out? There's NOTHING listed on the school's schedule for up coming events, even though there's an important parent/teachers meeting coming up in two weeks (Oct. 25 and 26th). I realize the school is closing, but why won't they keep parents abreast of what's going on? This is crazy people."

    "Page 1.1/7 As you continue reading, I tried to explain these factors and things we can do to stop this oracle of educational failure and apartheid. a) The excessive infusion of politics and control by the mayor and his minions; b) Changing dynamics of the students' population c) Unrealistic expectations as reflected in the designed curriculums and performance rubrics d) Incompetent leadership within the school and the district superintendent's office e) Lack of parental engagement, ineffective use of observation as a form of evaluating performance over capacity building f) Excessive focus on teaching to pass the state test NTHS, however, continues to offer some of the most innovative vocational programs to our learners that proved very effective in highlighting essence and relationship of their core academic courses with real life situations. They brought in a new principal, vigorously supported by faculty members, students and parents. The superintendent's announcement, amidst the visceral and quantified positive changes, that NTHS could not rehabilitate itself."

    "NTHS is an upstanding school. Big schools have the luxury of basketball, baseball, gyms, libraries. Well organized with secretarial staff including payroll, pupil accounting, Principal's & Assistant Principals, Record Keeping, Attendance&Programming, Senior's & security dept. & treasurer secretarial staff. We offer students opportunities daily w/afterschool programs, and weekend Regent's prep & SAT's. Because we are a big building we have dances and lots of student athletic opportunities; 1 student was endorsed by the Yankees. 73% of our kids are Hispanic making it difficult for them to find schools and possibly dropping out. Charter schools do not compare to the quality of a big building. In small schools 1 secretary has to do all of the segmented organized secretarial roles listed above. We need support from parents/students to show up to school for all the carte blanche programs we offer to facilitate higher scores, finals, regents and report cards. Merging schools in a big building is the most efficient way to run a school; we can have several schools in the same building and run with a proficient system."
