School Reviews

My daughter and son both graduated from NDHS. I believe they received an excellent education in a school that supports and encourages students to develop the confidence to work hard and do well. My children grew academically , socially and spiritually . I highly recommend this school. They were accepted into eighteen colleges in which they applied. They have become independent, caring and confident young adults.
