I loved being a student at Nazareth! Classes were challenging however all faculty wanted to help the students succeed. This school would be even better with more diversity but the culture was stimulating and made it clear that everyone was valued. The teachers were great especially the music department and library department! Our principal was the best! We even put his face on many tee-shirts because he was such an advocate for Nazareth's community and students. I will always have sweet memories of my High School. One last thing to mention are the popcorn-chicken bowls, hands down the absolute FANTASTIC school lunch to grace my stomach! Not to say that the rest of the food was terrible, there were many options to choose from that accommodated the taste buds of every student.

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.
The teachers are excellent, and technology integration is very good. Friendly and open environment as well, with many opportunities available to students. On the flipside, my personal experience with counselors has been middling, and it is difficult to contact them for information and help with issues unless one has scheduled an appointment with them in the office. I've also seen drugs passed around and talked about casually in school, despite campaigns against them. The school has recently been focusing on its athletics program too, and has been pouring money in that direction. We'll see how it goes.
