    There are a select amount of teachers who are absolutely amazing and care about each and every student, but then there are some who are absolutely awful. You can tell administration about this select few and nothing will be done. It may seem like a diverse school through numbers but culturally, it is not. There is clear discrimination against international students and students of color in general and again, nothing is done. Academically, they make you feel inferior and stupid by not allowing you to take classes that every other person your age is taking in other schools. There needs to be change is the last thing that I will say.

    The best part of this school is the music department. It really emphasizes the community aspect the school prides itself in. I would like to see a change in the guidance department. It is not very helpful and there have been several times where people have had to go down several times to check in on a simple task rather than being notified. On a more important note, I have heard several horror stories about transcripts not being sent to colleges on time. Overall, the guidance department is not organized and does not leave any student reassured that their problems are being taken care of.
    Amazing school where teachers, administrators and coaches care about student success, are available and engaged. I went to HN decades ago and have two students there now. The HN community is as strong as ever yet evolving with the times, investing in a Wind Turbine program, a STEM partnership with WPI, a leading Mock Trial program, Theatre, Music, international travel and mission trips, community service and competitive athletics with levels for all students. HN is diverse, not just racially and socioeconomically, but also with diversity of thought which is missing from many schools today. Students are "loved at home, loved at school, and loved by God." I am truly blessed that my children are part of the HN community where they are being well-prepared for college, making friends from all over Central MA, embracing Catholicism and theology, and growing into positive, caring, charitable young adults - thanks in large part to the HN environment.
