Hi, my name is Jada Quincy and I attended nomma. My experience at nomma was wonderful. I rate the quality on the teacher very greatly. They are understanding, compassionate, and won’t let you down for better or worse. They help you when needed, when ever your struggling grades wises and health wise. Nomma gives their kids something to look forward to so they don’t feel like giving up. This gives us a mental and physical wake up for when we are going to college. Nomma preps us to be responsible and to take charge of any endurance we cannot face in our paths. The environment of the school is totally outstanding makes the cadets feel safer than ever. There are people all around that pushes us to and tells us we can do it.
