When we first went to a Nathan Hale open house, we weren't expecting much and frankly did not expect it to even make our short list. It had a bad reputation at the time and a poor history. However what we didn't know was how successful the principal, Mr Benson, had been in turning this school around. We found we LOVED the faculty. The school has a killer music and drama department, a new stadium, and over the summer a new theater was built (finally!). Mr Benson has since left, but we trust his replacement will keep the ball rolling!
