Write down your goals on a piece of paper. Now tear that up, and write down your dreams.
That’s the kind of advice NMH student-athletes get from their coaches. Every student here — throughout 67 interscholastic teams, 19 varsity sports, and an extensive outdoor education program — is encouraged to think of athletics as yet another arena in which they can challenge themselves to dig a little deeper and aim a little higher.
And they’re more than just skilled athletes. Our students are good sports and great teammates.
NMH offers one of the broadest high school athletics programs in the country, and our College Model Academic Program (CMAP) gives students the time to participate in sports without sacrificing their studies. They learn all kinds of valuable lessons about sportsmanship and leadership that they can apply to other areas of life at NMH.
