Nardin Academy is an amazing school with an abundance of opportunities for its students. Each day, students are given the opportunities to explore themselves through academics and extracurricular activities. As a senior, I've discovered my passions for things such as writing, social justice, singing, debate, and travel! Without Nardin, I can honestly say that I don't know the person I would be, what I would be passionate about, or what I would want to contribute to the world. Moreover, the classes are interactive and because of that, I've been able to develop relationships with teachers and classmates that I believe will extend beyond high school. Overall, Nardin is a great school and I've truly enjoyed with my experience there!

If you want to have very high grade spikes, be an excellent writer, test taker, and be ready for college- Nardin is for you. If you fear of being stressed out and overwhelmed- Nardin is not for you. Nardin is very competitive but it does prepare you for college. With that said, you give up a highschool experience to be over prepared for college. Nardin lacks diversity amongst their students and staff and many of the faculty are conservative and very traditional. Nardin is very political and mainly filled with rich white conservatives. Nardin is very good at making well educated students, but creativity and diversity is not what this school is made of nor what it produces.
My experience at Nardin Academy has been amazing, yet I definitely take on an interesting perspective of the school since I have experienced so many of the changes each year. Nardin is progressing into the future by making the necessary changes with scheduling in order to fit the best needs of the student. It has been long overdue for change, but I am so glad that it’s happening now. The focus has definitely shifted from only teaching by lectures to taking a more wholesome approach in how the student can best benefit and prepare for the future, and my preparation at Nardin has definitely helped me gain the knowledge and confidence needed for college life and the real world.
