This May NCHS received a bronze recognition from US News and World Report in their national rankings of high schools. The award ranks NCHS in the top 6.25% (46th) in Indiana (570 public + 166 private and charter H.S.'s) and as a high-achieving school in the nation. The award was determined using a calculation of high math and English performance, percent of low-income students exceeding state and national results, and a career/college readiness rate (AP offerings and a school's student AP performance). Congrats to all NCHS teachers and students!  

Congrats to our interdisciplinary academic team (Tyler Willis, Gwen Mathis, Trinity Cornett, and Cate Brockthat earned first in class 1 at the Richmond regionals (third best in the state of Indiana) on April 19!  They competed at state at Purdue Univ. on May 6th! (Below)
