The School Director and Program Coordinator can also help students about school related problems with classmates, teachers, and/or staff members.

Student Advising

NLS has three administrators who also serve as advisers. Students may make appointments with the Director, Program Coordinator, or Student Services Coordinator for academic and personal advising; office hours of each person are posted on the InfoBoard in the main hall.
