Teaching in the public school siystem is difficult enough but if your planning on having an easier time here, do not count on it. Poor administration and the school district seems to be controlled and directly influenced by the big pockets of the catholic church in the area. In the last four years, four teaches have left the school. I would draw unemployment before I would teach here.

My children have attended several schools. Even though we live in a neighboring District our kids asked that we transfer them back to Nemo Vista. I know no school is perfect, however for a school Nemo Vista is probably one of the most attentive to the students. The Faculty deals promptly with issues of any kind. Serious issues are almost unheard of. My oldest will graduate this year with a 4.0 The youngest started with an IEP and with the 1 on 1 attention she has received over the past few years is with her peers and is holding a spot on the A-B Honor roll. I was told this would not be possible. Shows you what can happen when a child looks up to those around them and Teachers and Faculty really care. GO! RED HAWKS GO!

While there are a few great teachers here, the majority are not. Follow thru on behalf of the administration is non-existent. No wonder they have so many children with 'issues' here -- they create them.

I attend Nemo Vista High School and have to say that I love everything about the place. The teachers, facilities, bulidings, and the whole atmosphere. Go Red Hawks Go!

Nemo provides a wonderful atmosphere for growning children of all ages. As a graduate, I plan to send my future children there.
