NHS in the news



Narrows High School has been awarded bronze status by the U. S. News and World Reports 2013 & 2014 best high school rankings. To be recognized, a school must meet each of three steps. The first two steps look at wether schools serve the entire student body well, using performance on state proficiency tests as the benchmarks. For those schools that made it past the first two steps, the third step then looks at how well the school prepares students for college. Out of Virginia's 335 high schools, only 96 made this year's rankings. To see more about the selection criteria, go to view full story. To see the specifics for NHS click on the headline.

Narrows High School has been recognized as a Blue Star school for 2014. Gayle Kirby and Teresa Lowe have done a wonderful job with their personal finance courses, and so have their students. This recognition is not an easy accomplishment. Students who take the Financial Literacy Certification Test must average an 80% passing rate for the school to be recognized. We are proud of our students acheivement.
