NOTES from MS CASTRO,
Our NAHS family stands firmly against racism, injustice and violence. We believe in diversity and inclusion. We believe our differences make us stronger. We know that our success is due to the varied backgrounds of our student body/staff and the wide range of talents and strengths they bring based on their unique experiences and histories. We do not have the answers for this present darkness but we do believe that together we can persevere forward. Northridge Academy Administration
