Bet you didn't know: Nathan Hale students have operated C89.5, one of Seattle's most popular radio stations, for 30 years. The station features music from house to gospel, and was one reason Nathan Hale was featured as the "Cool School of the Month" in the December 1998/January 1999 issue of Teen People.
