    The school is not like it used to be. The teachers are young and inexperienced. The administrators have no patience or creativity in stopping the bad behavior of the majority of the students. It's just really sad to see a school that was once great turn out this way.

    im a student at nup i just think this school i wounderfull i just started this year im in the 8th grade and i love it i love how the school is set up its just great thats all i can say about this school

    Yes my child has been attending NUP since the 8th grade. I have nothing but good thihs to say about NUP. NUP challenges my child to think at a higher level using her critical thinking skills. Yes at times she has alot of homework however; this is preparing her college ahead. I know that once she graduates from nup she will be more than ready tfor college. They not only teach my child the fundamentals of her classes but they have taught her good study habits the teachers know my child by name and they are all so very helpful when i have a concearn. My child does not have to deal with the typical high school drama because she can focus on why she goes to school. NUP i apperciate all you have done for my child and i am going to miss your staff when she graduates in 2010.

    I'm a current student at nup and I believe that the work the teachers put forward is wonderful. My teachers interact with me and know me for me and not as just another student. I'm going to miss the school when I graduate!

    I'm a current student and I enjoy this school very much! We have alot of challenging work to do but the end reward is worth it. We have alot of fun and get along great with most of the teachers. I will dearly miss this school when I graduate -)

    The way things are set up is just ridiculous my kid comes hope and cries about how much work she gets. All Im saying is try to lighten up on these kids their just kids and I know u are preparing them for college but let them enjoy school while they still can.
