NHES earned the recognition as a high-progress school, based on statewide assessment scores of all students over the past three years of statewide assessments (2009-10, 2010-11, and 2011-12). Schools can also be recognized as highest–performing schools based on having scores among the highest 10 percent of all Title I schools for highest absolute performance on statewide assessments. Established to assist students who are behind academically or at risk of falling behind, Title I is the largest federal education funding program for schools. School funding is based on the number of low-income children, generally those eligible for the free and reduced price lunch program.
