Communication from your Counseling Team

  • During the time of school closure, the NTHS Counseling Team is committed to continuing communication with students and families. We will be regularly posting resources and answers to frequently asked questions here. Please check the content and follow appropriate links, etc. Email is the best form of communicating directly with your school counselor.  We will respond to emails within 24 - 48 hours. Thank you for your understanding and patience as we all navigate this unprecedented time.

  • Do you need a transcript? Ms. Sarah Smith, NTHS Registrar, is the main contact for transcripts. Her contact information is below.

    • There are two kinds of transcripts. Unofficial transcripts are essentially a copy of your transcript and can be used for many things.  Official transcripts are signed, dated, and sealed and are a more formal record.  Most applications, etc. will indicate if you need an unofficial or official transcript.
    • Please email Mrs. Smith with your request for unofficial or official transcripts and any questions.  Ms. Smith has been arranging for "quick pick ups" of official transcripts, but please give multiple days notice to allow for processing and arranging this service.
