My experience at NRHS so far has been filled with a wide range of emotions. The school is very diverse containing many personalities and cultures. NR is filled with many caring and skilled teachers that makes you forget about the few bad apples. Like any school, NR does have it's cons from the cliques, overcrowding, the not so good teachers, and especially the school's strong focus on the rankings. Many administrators at the school only care about students taking the most rigorous courses, and not the emotional and physical toll that can have on a student. Let alone the judgement from classmates if not taking AP or Honors classes.
I like the fact that this school is the most diverse in the county and we have a lot of opportunities to actually achieve something at a young age. There are so many activities, clubs and sports to do to help out your transcript for college. But everything in this school is all about money and the school does not care that if some people don’t have money, they can’t do these activities that are offered. The school should use the funds they receive from the bake sales and empanada sales to actually provide free trips for the students.
