I had a great academic experience at Nazareth but a terrible social one. Although I was involved in sports and clubs, I dealt with many social issues. I dealt with a lot of racism on a daily basis. The diversity at Nazareth was very lack luster, with 99% of the school being Caucasian. I am mixed race with German, Puerto Rican, and Black. Due to this, I was called many names and slurs. The administration did not do much of anything about this, making it tough for me to get anything done about what was happening. In hindsight this made me stronger and I am a mentor to young girls across the country. I try to help them with issues like this, confidence, grades, and much more! Overall I would give Nazareth a 3 out of 5.

I love Nazareth Area High School! The school makes you feel so welcomed there. The staff is very nice and makes learning in the classroom very fun! They are very easy to talk to, and the teachers there love to form connections with their students. In addition, Nazareth's academics are top notch! Nazareth Area High School's School Performance Profile Report Card Score for the 2015-2016 school year was 98.8% which is outstanding. Additionally, the school environment feels safe and secure. Ultimately, Nazareth Area High School is an amazing school to attend!
Over my time at Nazareth area High School I was introduced to a multitude of amazing and aw inspiring people while also experiencing an incredible and involved learning environment. While time went fast I was able to make many memories that will be with me for a life time. I am going to miss Nazareth but will never forget where I came from. Thank you!
