    Overall Experience: This school has to be the worst possible place to send your students. So many kids get involved with terrible activities and it brings the whole moral of an entire class down. Only 33% of kids that go here might have a shot at college.

    Teachers: The teachers at NBHS are there to just earn a paycheck which is hardly nothing in the first place. There are very few who actually care for their job and actually engage with the students. Most are dull and monotoned when they actually wish to speak to the class instead of a PowerPoint.

    Health & Safety: The health and safety of the school is very prominent. All school administrators and security/police look after all student's welfare. They make sure that no student or teacher is put in harms way.
