I would agree with what another reviewer wrote. It's all about how much you make and how much 'class' you have. I hear students talking down on someone because their 'modeling' career hadn't taken off.. Utter garbage. It's not just students. Teachers and anyone else who resides (free housing) on campus.

NMH was an interesting experience. They had jobs there and that gave students a sense of responsibility and discipline. Having people there from around the world allowed students to meet a lot of people from different backgrounds. I was there when it was 2 campuses, so it was interesting to have the
... Read more artsy campus, and the jock campus. It was quite a liberal school which can be very liberating because a lot of these private schools can be quite conservative. This gave students a chance to be themselves, rather than having to live up to this traditional standard. I remember, the first place I ever heard about global warming. It opened up my mind to a lot of new ideas. There was some clickiness going on, but most of that was on the Hermon campus. Those who were bothered always could escape to the Northfield campus.

NMH is awesome. The consolidation on to one campus has made a great school even better. The quality of the faculty and their commitment far exceeds my experience in the highly selective college I attend. I wish the new arts center was finished before I left. I don't think there is a school that can

I am a parent of a freshman this year. The school has had the best, most caring and intelligent teachers I've ever seen in a high school. The campus is beautiful, and the environment friendly. I recommend this school to eager, bright, students.

I love the atmosphere and the student-faculty relationship. I just graduated as a 4-year senior and I've been through the big change of moving to one campus. It's been hard but I know that NMH will thrive in 5 or 10 years. I recommend your children to go because it's not a place where 'grade' is everything.

I went to NMH. They do give out a lot of financial aid, but the overall attitude of the families and students that attend NMH is very negative toward those who are not of their financial status. I definitely agree that attending this school will educates your child about the harsh realities of life.

I am very recent graduate from NMH. It prepared me very well for my college, and I am very grateful. There are also tons of activities to get involved in, and doing so, I learned how to manage my time so I will be able to do academic work. There are a lot of adults who are exceptional and care so much
