My experience with Nardin Academy began when I was 4 years old, at their Montessori School. I am now a Senior and have had the privilege of attending Nardin for the past 13 years. All of my teachers, staff and executive leadership have been a tremendous support to me during family-related health situations as well as with my academic coursework. They all want me to succeed and offer whatever assistance they can provide to reach my goals. The numerous resources they offer and personal support I continue to be given has been amazing!

My first three years were spent in a traditional high school environment; however, when the new principle Adrienne Forgette came and essentially changed everything about daily life at Nardin, she fulfilled her agenda by making Nardin a less stressful environment. Be prepared to be academically challenged, but for the most part teachers are very willing to help. There is little drama between girls, nothing ever gets too out of hand. I'm grateful to have spent my high school years here instead of a public school. The only downsides are the tuition costs, parking, and the somewhat excessive homework.
Nardin Academy High School has good academics and teachers who care a lot about their students. However, if you’re child is more on the introverted side, she will have a difficult time at Nardin. The girls are very extroverted and often have big personalities. The community is small so everyone’s life is known by everybody. Drama occurs often as it does in any stereotypical all-girls private school. Introverts steer clear: you will be overlooked and will struggle to fit in.
