February Update!

We are very excited in the Counseling Department, we have had over 70% of our seniors apply to college and they are now beginning to make the tough decision as to which colleges they will be attending in the fall! Counselors have started meetings with Juniors, to ensure they are prepared for their upcoming senior year! Whether your plan is a four year college, technical school, community college, the military, or directly joining the workforce - every student graduates NHS with a plan, and it is never too early to start working towards that goal! We will additionally be hosting a number of field trips this spring, along with our College Night in April, so please be sure to keep up with all that is happening via our Twitter account as well as listening to daily announcements!
