My son is completing his second year at NHMS. We have found the teachers to involved and well prepared and the school to be very safe from bullying. I would highly recommend NHMS!

Niguel Hills is great! I am a student and I welcome the home work. The complainers should instead look at the amount of time students spend with TV, Games and Smart Phones and then reconsider their priorities. I also noticed complaints about homework by a GATE student, which contained numerous spelling and grammatical errors. Maybe "more" homework is the answer? Life is all about timing and priorities.

Niguel Hills, PLEASE keep inforcing the Dress Code. I frequently pick up my child from school and take notice to the obvious. This is Middle School. Who dresses these kids. Hoodies and sun glasses between classes and lunch? AND, where do they get all those Clown clothes? Not sure if I am at the curcus or a zoo!

It took us two years to get an IEP for our son who needed help due to ADHD. He has been on an IEP since the beginning of the year. Initially the resource teacher followed the IEP closely, but as the year has gone on, we've heard from our son that he isn't getting the help from his teachers as was identified in the plan. We have needed to be strong advocates for our son, which we are doing, but it is sad that the school personnel look down at suggestions such as giving 'fidgets, a sensory cushion or having him step outside the classroom to do 50 jumping jacks. They are helpful at home, but I wish they could also be used at school. If we keep on them, they do offer support to our son, but we have to keep on them for it to happen. Aside from the resource specialist, there are no other programs for kids with attention issues.

From a student~ I will be entering eighth grade after this summer, and I really won't mind getting back! Niguel is a top notch school with teachers who care. From what I've seen here at the school, a majority of the one-star comments and COMPLETE exaggerations! Homework levels are manageable, unless, or course, you aren't diligent and serious (even if you're in the advanced/GATE like me!) Physical fights and rare, though I can't say the same for verbal bullying, being a victim myself. Rules are fair, but it may not seem that way to parents will children who are juvenile delinquents (the same ones guilty of verbal abuse). Teachers, for the most part, are care deeply for each of their students, helping them through difficulties with work. The only qualm I have is the large class sizes, detracting from the overall learning experience because teachers must do less individual help. What can you do though, with the U.S. and it's budget cuts.

My child will be in 8th grade this year at NHMS. Having spent 2 years at this school, we have had our ups and downs. 6th grade was outrageous, the amount of homework was unreasonable. My child is an A student and it took him 3-4 hours a night just to get through the homework and that did not include studying for tests. There was a definite shift in 7th grade and maybe it was the new round of teachers, but the amount of homework was much less and we had a very enjoyable year. Bullying should not happen ever but regrettably it exists everywhere. We had one incident and the teachers handled it quickly and that was the end of it. As far as the dress code is concerned, it is not onerous or unusual. I have a son and he is not permitted to dress like a thug, the girls are to dress conservatively no tube tops or short shorts. This is a place for learning not a runway, rave or a costume party. The school is crowded. 40 kids to a class and the teachers spend time doing crowd control and teaching time is reduced. At home help with homework will be required.

My child will now be entering 8th grade.Their whole school system is a mess.everything is so outdated nothing has been renovated since I had attended school their.very old technology as well.yet they are always having fundraisers!?teachers obisouly don't care about the learning quality.the staff is very rude.teachers are always piling on excessive amounts of homework.I'm not naming names but a teacher here is forgetful and doesn't write homework assignments on the board or doesn't make them clear to the students and the next day they come back with half the assignment not knowing their was more .they then get blamed for her forgetfulness.there is lots or physical and verbal bullying my child has been a victim and they don't do anything .my child has all so been bullied by staff.

My 1st review of NHMS was so raw and real that it was rejected for public posting. My boys' experiences @ NH were no OC beach walks. From staff to students there is constant pressure, bullying (yes, from staff!), physical fights amongst students, and, if yours finally wins against the bully, the once underdog gets suspended for standing up for himself! Endless hours of homework. Buildings are overcrowded and older than we parents are and NOT updated in any way shape or form, yet, there are constant fundraisers...hmmm?! It's OC, so, no school bus system, only public trans. No matter the amt of classroom work your child does, the test scores are what determine your childs overall grade. Hv an A one day, fail 1 test and HELLO! C the next. We had to put our boys in Tae Kwon Do and Jiu Jitsu. Once the school yr was over, one of our boys graduated to Dana Hills HS (Great School) the other we sent to Santiago Charter School in Orange to AVOIDthis nightmare again.

Hi , I want to know about your school , because maybe we want move to your city next year and I have a 12 years boy , If it's possible send the news for me , thanks a lot . Hope see you soon .


Posted February 7, 2013

I agree with the most recent comments. Dress code is pretty ridicules and inconsistent. as are most rules in this school. I don't see that it is too much homework but more that there is no accountability for HW and the teachers really don't seem to care at all about each student. It is overcrowded as well. I have an 8th grader and a 9th grader who both spent three years here. They did not have any issues socially but I do know that other kids have. The office staff often seem to be under a great deal of stress so I think that is where the rudeness comes from. Overall I am sorry I choose this school and hope my kids will do better in another school district for their high school education.

Way to much homework!!! Most teachers don't care about the kids learning!Too much bullying that goes on and nothing is done about it! The teachers cram way to much homework in at the last minute and have lots of hard tests! Dress Code has been a major issue and nothing has been done about it!!! Now with two weeks remaining in the school year they decide to hand out punishment for Dress Code. The front office is very mean and rude to children and parents!This has not been a good experience!!!!

My daughter is going into 8th grade on September 8, 2009 and she loves the school. The teachers are nice and she has been getting wonderful grades since she has been going there.

I have learned an amazing deal from school. The academics are so well-developed and I just feel, for the lack of a better term, better than those who go to other schools. Sure, my work load is high, maybe a little too high, but I get it done and it's good for me in the long run. The Gifted and Talented Edu. program I'm in couldn't be better. When things get out of hand, there's a good deal of punishment. We have lots of extracurricular activities and special elective groups like Associated Student Body, Peer Assistance Leadership, and AVID. The faculty couldn't be any nicer. I only have 50 more days left here and I'm going to miss it !

The homework is a little too excessive, and some teachers just don't seem to care about the students' learning quality. Overall, however, the GATE program is good and we students seem to succeed on tests despite the careless teachers.

The classrooms are severely overcrowded, buildings are old, budget is being managed poorly, they throw AT LEAST one fundraiser per WEEK at us, test scores are low, materials are low and poor, quality of education is poor, rules enforced poorly- people dressing sleazily and bullying, students are under-engaged, fights outbreak often, excessive 'filler' homework, lack of disciplinary system, second rate math and science, old books, special education program is poor, english learners program is poor, disgusting walls and hallways, 20 year-old lockers which only half of work. Overall this school is despicable compared to the other nearby schools and pathetic in almost all aspects. I have dreaded coming to this school for the past 3 years, and can tell you from personal experience, that, this school is most definitely the WORST school in the Orange County area.

The 6th grade AAA/Gate program is extremely homework intensive. I was warned by every parent that it would be a ridiculous amount of homework...nothing prepared me for the reality. My child hates school for the first time in his life. I'm hoping seventh grade is more reasonable.

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.
