MY oldest daughter went to the school in the late 90's that the school was horrible. I was hessitant to send my child in 2009. I did anyways in the meantime I researched schools..My experience with the school now is very pleasant, the teachers are great (she is in the gifted program) and the principal seems to respond to concerns. The only thing I would change is for them to be strict about disciplining kids when it comes to bullying. My daughters grades are excellent, her teachers care about the kids. The lunch lines are still a problem. but other than that the school is surprising me. I am pleased.
I am very exicted that my children are attending this school. They are in Honors courses and they are coming home with A's & B's. The teachers are very dedicated to their students. I like that this school is reaching out to the parents. I would like for the school to reach out more to the community and involve the neighboring residents to help with the protection of the children especially before and after school. I am glad that I decided to give Nimitz a chance for my kids future:)
I'm a teacher at Nimitz and I have to say that Nimitz has come a long way from what I've heard it used to be. The school is striving hard (and succeeding) to make significant academic gains and, among many other middle schools in the L.A. area, it is highly regarded for the cohesiveness of the teachers and faculty in doing what's best for the students, and giving them the skills and discipline needed to succeed. I am the first ot admit that Nimitz has a long way to go, but I do see great things coming its way.
I think taht Nimitz MS is a very nice middle school to have your children go to. Overall this school has very proffessional teachers and the students who come here have a very big possibility of getting a career. Even though this school isnt that good at dicipline we'll say that about 2%of the kids arent diciplined.
