I love the way the teachers interact with students. They make sure that students know the material and at the same time, the students also make decisions for themselves. Not only that, but there is a lot of interactions within students that happens within the classroom, therefore students aren't just staring at textbooks or working independently (although there is designated time for that). The teachers are also ready to give advice about most things when you ask them something. In addition, the material is challenging; students aren't just learning the same content over and over again. There is a lot of variety. Last but not the least, the change in students is clear. When looking at their work from the beginning of the school year to the end of the school year, they have improved in their writing, math, scientific knowledge, and much more. I love the school!

As a senior, I highly recommend this high school. Attending NEST+M for three years now, I can say that I have had many wonderful experiences. The teachers are strict but fair. They have high expectations of their students as they are admitted to a gifted and talented program. Students are expected to be hardworking and driven individuals. If they do not understand the concepts, it is their responsibility to ask the teachers for help. Don't be intimidated to ask NEST+M teachers for help, they always want the best for you. They want their students to succeed. NEST+M provides a healthy, safe, and supportive learning environment. This school also promotes mental health awareness. In freshmen year, students are required to take a theatre class that focusses on subjects such as vulnerability and confidence. This class allows for an easier transition for incoming freshmen.
I have spent a memorable three years here, and will be graduating at the end of June. I am very fortunate for the tight-knit community at this school that I could count on throughout my high school career. Many of these people were not my direct instructors, but faculty that have become a part of my extended family, and that I will miss after leaving the school.The assistant principal Mrs. Souffrant, a leader, cares all about her students, and even took the time to write my letter of rec. Mr. McLaughlin, my senior year phys-ed teacher, knew exactly which college would be the right for my interests. Bao, epic AP bio teacher notorious for no H.W policy, motivated me when I procrastinated, and even gave free- supplies when he noticed my disorganized schoolbag during junior year. I will always remember Lisa, the parent coordinator, who gave me "good-news" gum after every college-acceptance. Few schools are like this. Future accepted students, come to this school. You won't regret.
