Northern Nash is a great school. The teachers here know how to teach their subject very well and in my two years of being here so far, I've learned a lot. There's plenty of clubs and sports to participate in. One thing I wish we had is a Chorus (like Nash Central's) but overall, everything is great!

Northern Nash High School is overall a very good school. However, one must be self-motivated to pull through at a high level. The school has adjusted to technology extremely well and paper is hardly used. Yet, with technology comes a responsibility to be able to push yourself and fight for yourself. The teachers are always helpful in assisting a student with any problem, they form positive relationships full of support. Northern Nash also provides amazing opportunities such as, dual enrollment, early college, and CTE programs. All in all, the school has a lot going for it, but one cannot wait around and expect anything to be done for them.
Northern Nash High School was the best school experience I have ever had. The teachers really care about their students and do everything they can to see each student succeed. The other students as well are very diverse and collective in all that we do. Northern is very much like a big family that believes we are stronger together. We also have an amazing principal who is not only a mentor but like a father to us all, he deserves all the respect in the world due to his time and effort that he has put into each and every one of his students.
