I have given NEST+M a 4/5 stars because it excelles in benefitting the students lifestyle. Most of the teachers are great at teaching, creating hands on activities and group activities that would most likely benefit us later on. But at the same time, they are leient enough to extend a deadline if it’s absolutely needed for the student’s life outside of their busy school life. Additionally, we have college week where the teachers would explain to us about certain colleges (and universities). And there is also a college office. However, there aren’t many clubs, NEST+M is still developing in clubs. A few examples, Key club, tech crew, debate, and student government. Correlating, the PA helps out a lot, especially in setting up school events. The hold bake sales and breakfast for the adults and teachers on some mornings. Overall, NEST+M is a gifted and talented k-12 school, with different students coming from all five boroughs, bringing in their diverse cultures and unique colors.

Though classes are challenging, I've learned a lot not only about courses themselves but how to make use of my time with school; most of my teachers are kind, understanding, and very knowledgable and informative; nearly all of my peers are friendly, hardworking, and smart; and there's always an adult to talk to if you're not feeling your best, which is probably my favorite quality about this school.
The only reason I wouldn't rate this school perfect may seem negligible to some but the facilities like the bathrooms and locker rooms aren't the cleanest (.. one time upon entering a stall a cockroach landed on my forehead,) though I know that there are limits to anti-drug involvement in school, some students take them, and there has been some debate about the administration, specifically in how the principal tells teachers to teach their classes. Supposedly this is why some of the best teachers at Nest have left to teach somewhere else.
Overall good experience! There are definitely a lot of issues with the administration, but the majority of faculty and staff are good. I can also confidently say the school is amazing at college readiness. The work may seem hard now, but it will make college work a lot more manageable.
