I have been going to NSA since I was five years old, and although I haven't experienced any other learning environment, I can genuinely say this is a great school. The faculty at this school care about the students and listen to their ideas to make it a better place. I am challenged every day by my peers and feel prepared for collegiate level academics. The college counselors have made the college admissions process as easy and stress free as possible. The culture at NSA is unique in the sense that it strives for not only academic excellence but also excellence in the arts and athletics. The admissions office offers many forms of financial aid, sending the strong message that this school is not just for rich students, but for scholars who strive for excellence and truly want to be at this school. Nansemond-Suffolk is a small school, but it has some truly big ideas.

When I attended (from K-12, having graduated a few years ago), I experienced an alarmingly high amount of bullying, racism, drug use, and administrative hypocrisy. If you're going to pay over $10,000 for your child to go to a first-rate school, I would sincerely urge you to look elsewhere (some options in the area being Norfolk Academy and Cape Henry Collegiate). There was not enough of a culture of a constant quest for learning and self-improvement. At the end of the day, a culture of achievement and genuine civility is what separates a thriving, satisfied student body from one with inferior values (e.g. one which places undue importance on athletics-based social hierarchies and blind reverence for [demonstrably corrupt] authority). In summary, I strongly encourage you to consider other schools with higher average test scores and more welcoming, academic cultures.
I LOVE NSA! It has been my home for several years now, and it's by far the best school I have ever been to! The teachers CARE, the coaches WANT you to succeed, and there's always additional help if you need it. My class has no trouble getting into colleges with the help of our great college counseling... Columbia, MIT, Yale... NSA is really the BEST!
