NHCS teachers and staff are smart, problem-solving, reflective, and passionate. They are mission-driven: they want to help each of our students achieve future success by preparing them for college, career and life. They like being a part of a dynamic, hard-working team. They believe that they can truly make a difference and they are confident in what they are doing, but they are humble enough to know that they can always improve.

NHCS Offers…

A Supportive and Inspiring Professional Growth Environment

At NHCS, we know that without great teachers, nothing else matters. We seek the very best teachers and challenge them to get better through coaching and collaboration. We know that transforming students’ lives and changing the course of urban education is hard work, so we have systems and structures in place to make sure teachers can focus on what is most important – their students’ learning and success.

Strong and Effective Leadership With a History of Success

Joining our team means working in a school that serves as a laboratory for best practices in urban education, with leaders who have a 17-year history of proven academic results. Our leaders have transparent expectations and work relentlessly to support teachers to meet them.

Consistent Instructional and Behavioral Expectations

At NHCS, we do not give up on kids. Our goal of preparing all of our students for college, career and life success is shared by every staff member and drives everything that happens in our school. All members of our school community share a common set of high expectations for student achievement and behavior.
