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.
