NHS Honored by the Washington Post for the 4th Year in a Row!

Northbridge High School has been recognized as one of America's Most Challenging High School for the 4th year in a row.  

America’s Most Challenging High Schools ranks schools through an index formula that’s a simple ratio: the number of Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate and Advanced International Certificate of Education tests given at a school each year, divided by the number of seniors who graduated that year. A ratio of 1.000 means the school had as many tests as graduates.


Surprising SBIRT Results!
