Do you like learning more about your classmates and teachers? Do you enjoy Instagram? Then please give HumansOFSNHS a follow and start learning more about the people inside these halls. The Peer Education and Student Leadership classes have the Instagram page up and running with over 200 posts so far. Give us a follow, throw us a like, but more importantly, learn about others before judging them. We all have a story to tell one student at a time.
