    I graduated from NCHS in 2001. The education that you can obtain if you try is more than adequate. After graduating I was offered admission to an out of state school (which I graduated from in May) and now I am attending veterinary school. When I was a student, they did not offer very many AP courses...that is the one weakness that they should try to improve upon (if they have not already).
