The echoes can be heard throughout the hallways of Northampton High School. This may sound creepy and haunting, but it is quite the opposite. The sounds that collide off the walls of the corridors are evidence of the vibrant, creative culture that is alive and well at NHS. One could tell how important the arts are at this school without witnessing any of the events taking place around the building. The music from the jazz band, the actors playing out dramatic theatre scenes, and the smell of cookies from the kitchen can all be experienced simply by walking through the halls. There is nowhere in the school that is free from the sounds of all the activity in the school. There is action everywhere.
