I liked the fact that the school had a nice amount of students, not overwhelmingly large like some other valley schools, but still large enough to make a student feel like they have endless opportunities to make new friends. I was in the Highly Gifted Magnet program and thought some teachers, such as Mr. Maine and Mrs. Ordona, were absolutely incredible and made me love going to their class everyday. The Magnet program I was in also had some very emotionally, and verbally abusive teachers when I attended, and these teachers and the fact that the administration but no effort to bettering my (and many others) situation made me decide to transfer to another school.
The social scene at this school is very different. Yes, people don't have all the same friends as everyone else but every one is nice to each other. In groups you don't see one type of race, you see all different types. Peer pressure will be everywhere, whether you want it around or not. Students just have to know what's right and wrong so that they know when another student is offering them something bad. Acceptance is something very big at this school, no one is ever left out. Where you're a girl or boy, Asian, white, Hispanic, or African american everyone is always accepted at the school. Challenges in regard to ethnic/racial diversity isn't a big problem.
As a member of the Highly Gifted Magnet (HGM) at NHHS, I am constantly challenged by great teachers and guided every inch of the way through my education and path to college. It's a big school with a highly accepting atmosphere, and in my experience, neither bullying nor discrimination have been an issue. There are many clubs for students to be involved in, and academic teams are paramount at this school. Magnet teachers are brilliant, demanding, and supportive. They care about every student, and since it's such a small program, they give individual attention to each student if they are sought out. The Zoo Magnet and HGM provide busing. It is frustrating to me that the school only offers Spanish in the resident school when 70% of the students are Latino, and ditching class is a large concern. The school does have police officers, however, who patrol and ensure a safe community.
