Overall the teachers are extremely caring and are always ready/ prepared to help the students. I personally feel as though I am able to talk to any teacher in the building about my problems and such. Our guidance counselor is also extremely kind and willing to help every student. Although, the school decided to omit our sophomore year from our GPA’s due to certain circumstances, which is very frustrating.

Small public school in a tiny town in Vermont. Extremely limited in terms of learning opportunities, I think there are a total of 4-5 AP classes you can take. If you want to learn about anything outside of general education (Math, English, science, history, etc.) you're pretty much out of luck. However, they do allow students to attend the Randolph Technical Career Center and take dual enrollment classes at Norwich University.
I think that there are some teachers at NMHS that work hard and truly care about students. That being said, I think the administration is not clear on the direction they want the school to go or in their support of students who are not your "typical" student and therefore those of us who are not "typical" learners have a more difficult time receiving the supports we need.
