The PAVE program is really where you see the art and music department come alive.
NRHS is equipped with 1 football field with a surrounding track, a baseball field, two small soccer fields which are also used as lacrosse fields, a swimming pool, roof top tennis courts, a gym, a wrestling room, a weight room, and two sports meeting rooms.
NRHS has a pretty diverse range of sport teams. There are your typical sports such as basketball, football, volleyball, track, baseball/softball. But we also host a very popular lacrosse team, tennis, hockey, wrestling, golf, and even an up and coming Frisbee team. All of our teams are pretty good teams and 5 of our teams have been noted on national levels. The school itself shows a lot of pride in it’s football team and the lacrosse team but some of our other heavily populated sports are the track team, baseball, and wrestling. Several students have graduated New Rochelle High School with sports careers such as Ray Rice, Lynn Lane, and recently Matt Duran who was drafted to the New York Yankees his senior year. There are a number of other sports to choose from as well but if sports aren’t your thing that’s perfectly okay. While joining a sport is a great way to build leadership skills and meet new people there are so many other opportunities at the school to do that. Many people in the school do play sports one time or another at the school because there are so many to choose from but you’ll never feel left out because you don’t do one.
There are two different cafeterias to choose from. The “old-wing” cafeteria is two levels and is equipped with vending machines. It’s dimly lit as often regarded as the cafeteria for mostly football players and freshmen but honestly it’s pretty diverse in comparison to the new wing cafeteria. The new wing cafeteria is a long rectangular space with open windows also the left side so it’s always bright in there. The new wing cafeteria tends to appear cleaner due it’s lighting and different design. Unlike the old wing there is a snack line in the cafeteria that offers things like Baked Lays, pretzels, Doritos, cookies, water, Izze drinks, and muffins. That doesn’t sound too exciting but when those are your only options besides the cafeteria food you’ll take it gladly. It’s only open for lunch 1-3 whereas the old wing cafeteria is open lunch 1-4.
You don’t have to go to the cafeterias for lunch. During the warmer days a lot of people opt to go outside for lunch and sit by the fields. Even when it’s cold out people chose to spend their lunch periods in the stacks as well.
The food is debatable. Recently the food in the new wing cafeteria has been getting pretty good. A lot of the food is being freshly prepared and of course they have “healthy” options now. The food you can chose from daily are pizza, pre-made and make your own sandwiches, and a salad bar. On certain days there are tacos, chicken parm, pasta, grilled cheese sandwiches, and specialty heroes....
