I was very apprehensive about sending my child to NNC. I tried to have him transferred but the "best" middle school in the PSUSD is over crowded and the other middle schools have a worse score than NNC. Well, my child has attended NNC two years now and I don't have any complaints. There are plenty of opportunities for him to participate in after activities. Every time there's some kind of assembly during school or in the evening for parents you can see all kinds of groups your child can be part of. I see the ASB kids, and the interpreter club kids happily helping out. I watch the choir, band, cheer, dance and drama, show off their talents. There is the kids care club always set up trying to raise funds for whatever cause is important to them. The principle is always in attendance. There are the sports teams you can join or technology clubs, debate team, ect. They also have the AVID program and JUMP. There are so many opportunities for your child to be involved and to find something to be passionate about. I am very happy with NNC.

It us extremely obvious that a staff meeting was called for teachers to post on this site for March 22,2014, because the reviews are BOGUS to say the least.There are no such thing as An afterschool program for Bullying or ANYTHING ELSE WORTH LEAVING YOUR CHILD FOR! The so called leadership is nonexistant! This school does not have leadership at ALL. It has a principal who needs to retire, so a more youthful, fresh minded,individual who is in touch with todays social issues dealing with our youth, can step in. No disrespect but until that happens thete will be no change.Staff of NNC, stop posting untrue post about your school being something that it is NOT! #CHANGENEEDEDATNNC

There is an awful lot of speculation on the rather inefficiency of Nellie N. Coffman. As a person which has seen it grow and become grander I would like to somewhat destroy the 'comments' which are both irrelevant and incorrect. For starters, its Debate team has excelled to a point of such great improvement. This April it will go to Nationals representing the Desert Valley Debate League as 1st place. As for its staff, they have most certainly PROVEN that they acquire of more educational resources to their students than many schools in the Coachella Valley. As for the Principal, she is probably the BEST leader that Nellie N. Coffman will ever have. Her initiative and involvement within school parameters just completely overachieved the set goals. She first of all doesn't just focus on her duties, but goes beyond that. She helps out with extracurricular activities and students which need of some assistance. That furthermore proves that this school is not that bad. In fact probably one of the best ran schools you will ever find.

Though the outdated reviews of 2009 and below may rather implore the discrepancies of the school you may change your mind when you click on the Programs and Culture- tab. Extracurriculars such as Debate, Band, Choir, music, art, computer graphic, and sports can really develop middle school adolescents. Among its staff you can find coaches, psychologists, counselors, security, math specialists, and science curriculums. Among others. If you were to ever put your child in this school don't worry about 'racism' as some of the other reviews may accuse of the school of having. The Associated Student Body, the counselor, and even its After School Program nail the subject of bullying extensively. The ASB group also lets the students have fun by providing After School Activities, school spirit weeks, and even Lunch Activities for Students to have fun.

The school was at one time improving and getting better, then the principal retired!!! The current principal has made this school unbearable for substitutes as well as to the current staff. The principal gives the students the power to disagree with the teacher on everything and she never faults the students for disrupting the learning environment.

My child was in the Severe Special Education Life Skills Program at this school for 6th and 7th grade. It was one of the greatest experiences for him. The Principal was amazing, she attended every single IEP meeting and was very involved with the students. Unfortunately when he went into 8th grade the entire program was shipped off to Raymond Cree, which was not a nice place at all.

I substituted at this school several times. I quit the job in the worst job market in the country because of how bad this school was. I can't say more than to tell you I was there and I wouldn't subject myself to that kind of environment let alone my children. When I told the teachers that I substituted for, that the students felt empowered to act horribly, three of them told me at separate times that the administration supported this attitude. Yes threatening, yes uncontrolled talking, yes uncontrolled refusal to do work, yes completely ignored my requests to let other students in the classroom please listen to the lesson. It goes on and on. It would be a disservice to your children to enroll them here.

This is one of the worst ever. I had to take my son out of this school because he was getting attacked everyday because he has white. I was reallt frightening for his life. It was getting perty bad. The principal diden't care at all. I took him out to do independent study every monday you go in and pick up a package for the student to turn in on friday . only one time in 8 weeks did they have a package ready for him. so the school really did leave my son behind. I am happy we are back in Nevada were this school cares about the students.

The school is newly remodled but the class size is 40+. I dislike the learning structure of classes. It seems there is not parent teacher interaction when there is a problem in the class. Unless you attend parent teacher conferences you may not be aware you childs grades are failing. To many kids in classrooms to provide adequate education.

The school is improving and test scores are going up. The campus is clean and orderly and remodeling is taking place.

This school has come a long way. It has excellent leadership and a very hard working staff. They want to move the school forward so that kids are prepared for college and the work force.

I believe that the growth and change at NNC over the past 3 years is amazing. The quality of education is strong and students are becoming students who believe that they can achieve.

I enjoyed attending this school! The staff is great and the enviorment as well!!! People judge by appearance but dont take the time to look closer on what is going on at this school! It is not a bad school at all!!!


Posted July 1, 2006

I am a recent graduate from NNC(2006) and will be going into 9th grade soon.My own personal experience was terrible.There was hardly any extracurricular activities all three years I was there.Although I mantained a high GPA, I was one of the few. Many students did barely anything, just enough to pass, goofing off in class, and disrupting other students who actually care about their education. I hope that someone actually helps this school instead of ignoring it.

my daughter a 6th grade student is very unhappy at this school and her grades are reflecting this. The school is mostly hispanic and she feels she doesnt fit in. she has tried getting involved in school to make friends and make school more fun for her, but is given a hard time from other students because of it. It seems like none of the kids want to be there and they are just miserable. our daughter is being tutored to do the job of teaching her the school is not accomplishing. it is a school that is not meeting state standards in testing and now that is the sold focus of the school, not to teach the kids, just get them to 'pass a test'!. she will be completing the school year, and we will be home schooling her next year.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
