Nashua High School North is a community of learners where each student upon graduation has been afforded access to personal academic goals through rigorous and diverse study, invited to respond to issues of social importance that influence local and global outcomes, and challenged to exhibit model citizenry and respectful attitudes toward all human differences.
We are a school that believes in setting personal goals with each of our students and developing personalized strategies to help reach them. We are committed to providing research-based practices in the classroom that generate data that we can use to improve individual instruction. We understand creating agency between parents, student and the schoolhouse is a primary building block toward success for all. And, we focus much of our work on engaging students with content developed around their individual post-secondary interests.
After construction was completed in 2002, North is lucky to be in a state-of-the-art 450,000 square foot modern physical plant that encompasses all aspects of a 21st Century learning facility. Presently undergoing its first self-study with the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, North hopes to receive its first accreditation after its March 2010 visit from the Commission on Secondary Schools.
Nashua High School North is a leader in providing consistent and well-developed professional development to its professional faculty for the improvement of instruction. Working from the Professional Learning Community model, teachers and staff engage in reflective practice on a daily basis and enter into formal workshops several times per month. The commitment of this faculty is evident in its time spent in this work outside of the normal school day and its serious approach to implementing best practice. Below is a list of links to the professional associations that are working or have worked with Nashua High School North in its improvement process, as well as membership associations to which members of the faculty belong.
