Nogales High School 3

This school has its ups and downs, all schools do. Yes there are the student who do not care about the school, and will eventually drop out or move to another school, but it is also filled with students willing to make something of them self, the teachers here try there best to help you, want the best for you, administration, well you can't judge them much since every year we get new administration. I feel they need to get their stuff together, and find out ways to better the life the students who want to get their work done instead of focusing how to reward the miss behaving students, seriously I went here and recently graduated from here, I feel as they favor the misbehaving students and do not really reward the hard working ones. Administration get your stuff together really! What I do love about this school is the staff members who try to push you to do your best, the teachers, the counselors, the coaches, and advisers. Administration... I do not like you very much, or you security guards, stop being buddy buddy with the gang members and hating on the other students, we see that.

As a California State Councilmember and community member I believe Nogales High School is a great school but Administrators like Sergio Canal and Brandon David Martinez are making the school fail.

Nogales High School is a great school. The teachers do care about their students, it's just many of the students are disrespectful and rude to anyone different or weak. My daughter was being bullied and the administration did nothing. The honors, IB/AP students are very friendly kids, so I would rather have my kid attend those classes instead of being harassed by others in regular classes. Another problem is the school officers around campus. They are always on their phones instead of doing their job. It makes me sick that the new principal is letting these administrators get away with this. How about instead of wasting your time trying to reconstruct the whole school and start reconstructing your whole administration.

Nogales High School is a horrible school and I feel bad for all the kids attending it. If I had the chance to remove my kids from this school i'd take it. Most of the administration does not know what they are doing and do not know how to do their job right. This school is filled with a bunch of trashy kids who do not care about their education or worry about the future. The only dedicated program is the IB/AP program, however, there are some unfair things about. All three of my children have been in the IB classes for the past few years and they always talk about how unfair it is that kids take out their phones in the middle of tests to cheat and get away with it. This school is very undisciplined and has fights going on every other week. Maybe administration should do something instead of standing around for once.

Maybe the administration should stop worrying about who's shorts are "too short" and motivate students to care about their education. Teachers should also start doing their job instead of sitting around on Facebook during class and talking about their personal life that nobody cares about.

I am a current student at Nogales High School. I am a Junior, Class of 2015. I believe this school is a great school, its just the bad reputation that makes it seem has a bad reputation because of all the gangs near the school. The teachers do care about the students' academic performance and do whatever they can to help them. This school is great! The Honors, AP and IB courses are excellent! Throughout the years, it has changed dramatically, in a positive way. Gotta love this school.

This school needs a lot of improvements starting with the principles and Vice Principal's How Nogales does have great teachers but can't go anywhere without the right leadership with a principle that is only looking to Advanced her career With a district position Should focus more on her students and school staff and helping teachers accomplish their goals

School is filled with both incapable teachers and students. Students refuse to learn and teachers have difficulty teaching. Sports are the only things they have left.
