HNHS academic counseling seeks to balance a strong academic education, with the promotion of community service and engagement along with an awareness of family responsibilities. To achieve this balance HNHS works closely with each student to develop the best possible course load, one that provides intellectual and academic development, access to an artistic and creative life, as well as avenues to be responsible to their families and their communities.
HNHS is proud of its successful four Project Lead the Way (PLTW) courses: Introduction to Engineering Design, Computer Science Principles, Human Body Systems, and Environmental Sustainability. PLTW is an American nonprofit organization that develops STEM curricula for use by elementary, middle and high schools.
A Service Learning Program is a keystone of the HNHS curriculum. Part of the program involves All-school Service Immersion days. Each class develops a unique social justice theme which in turn determines the class members choice of service site.
Athletics is an important part of student life. Athletic teams are consistently awarded for strong performance and academic achievement. Over half of the HNHS student body participates in a sport, with 21 of our Varsity athletes maintaining a GPA of 3.8 and higher. Recent highlights include Volleyball becoming co-league champion and Basketball’s 3rd finish in the league. Two 2020 graduates are playing collegiate level NCAA Division 3; one in basketball and the other in swimming. And a member of the Golf team was invited to the NCS playoffs.
