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!
Great school in general, but for those looking for a heavy focus on academics will be disappointed. The school is geared more towards athletics and athletic people, despite the inability to win many games against rival private schools. Lots of AP and honors classes offered though, and teachers do help out a ton. College counseling is offered and personalized. Class sizes are small.
