Math Team

The NMH Math Team has been increasing in popularity and interest over the past few years.

There are about 40 active students on the team, with three student captains sharing supervisory responsibilities. The team meets formally once a week to learn different areas of mathematics and practice with challenging problems. In addition, the captains and faculty advisor offer additional meetings for those who are eager to pursue their specific interests.

The team participates in many local, national and international mathematics competitions, which are fun, interesting, and often quite challenging. These competitions include:

  • New England Math League (NEML)
  • Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) Math Meet at WPI, Worcester, MA
  • Princeton University Math Competition (PUMAC)
  • American Mathematics Competitions (AMC 10 and 12)
  • Harvard-MIT November Tournament (HMNT), Cambridge, MA
  • Harvard-MIT Mathematics Tournament (HMMT), Cambridge, MA

The NMH Math Team is open to all students in every grade. New members at any level are welcome. The goals are to promote the passion, curiosity, and learning of mathematics, and to be competitive and place high in the competitions.

Contact Math Team coach Taylor McNeill if you're interested in participating.

I want dance students to engage their own memory and intellect.

Science isn't just talk, but it certainly helps.

I love teaching AP Bio. The kids are highly motivated.

This past summer, I increased my awareness of my identity by reconnecting with my native country, Ethiopia.


“I don’t think I would be anywhere near the person I am today if it wasn’t for NMH. It’s enlightened me about so many different things, and I’ve met people from everywhere you can imagine.”


In my old school, I never saw myself as someone who could be a Division I player one day. Now I can.


"One of my biggest influences has been my math teacher. He built this love of math in me—specifically, the idea that math can be used to interpret the world." 


"The fact that everything is here at my fingertips has really helped me grow."


"Almost all of our classes are conversation-based, which means that you're totally engaged in classroom discussion."


"I enjoy helping my friends, and it's given me a new respect for teachers. I may even go into teaching myself one day."


"In VOTES, I learned how to prepare and present—skills I drew on in Washington."


 "This year, I'm field hockey captain. I enjoy giving advice and support."


“I like that you can start completely new things. You can reinvent yourself.”


Dance has taken this creative learner on an artistic journey.

 “My teachers told me to use my own voice, and they pushed me to think about what I really believed in.”


"The curriculum here is hard, but it’s the right amount of hard."


“The academics are extremely rigorous, but because of the way teachers present things, it’s like, ‘I have school today!’”


“The learning you can do in a study-abroad program can outweigh anything else you can do even at a school like this.” 


“NMH encouraged me to explore new things, try everything, and see what’s best for me.”


“You’ll always find a place here as long as you just be yourself.”


“There is a community here that cares about you.”
