I have been going to Naf for 7 years and each year I learned something new. All my teachers worked hard to help me and they helped me with college applications and jobs and they taught me a great deal of work. The teachers are so nice and they respect you as long as you respect them. Naf have a lot of sports but sometimes it’s hard to get people to play or we don’t win every game but we stick together in our sports and support each other. The lunch is great sometimes but they don’t really give you what u want sometimes and sometimes it doesn’t look good but I judged based off how it looked till I actually tried it. We have a lot of big events but they can be taken away due to bad behavior of your class.

I have been at NAF since the 6th grade, i am now a junior. NAF is a great school if you're focused on your career. Some of the staff is focused on students and their safety others are focused on events and getting the school attention.
It's a city school, there's not much to expect. I'm a part of the Regional Math and Science Center (RMSC) and the kids that gather there seem like geniuses compared to me, and its because of their schools. They have access so many resources that I don't have access to. It's unfair, I try to make do with what I have but i can only do so much. If NAF had AP math courses I'd be so far ahead, but they don't in fact it took nearly 2 months for NAF to get a Pre-Calc teacher. In previous years NAF has had teachers that students couldn't even understand, that being said the whole class suffered a loss because they didn't learn anything. My math SAT score is a 500, that is below the benchmark and it's that low because I haven't learned much math at NAF and it's disappointing .
