Principally Speaking

October started off with a bang! On October 1st, Nashua was announced as a 2018 National Blue Ribbon School as a Exemplary High Performing School. We had a great celebration with dancing, t-shirts, and hot dogs. It was amazing to see how excited the entire Nashua Community was when the announcement was made. This accomplishment was not by one individual, but a culmination of dedication and hard work towards high standards of learning. Thank you to everyone who has played a part in the success of this achievement! I am humbled and honored to serve as the principal of this award winning school.
