My youngest daughter really enjoys attending NHS. Her attendance is AMAZING here after being a truant student in Los Angeles School District! My middle daughter Graduated from NHS in 2007. She really was always focused @ NHS and her talents supported! She won a Performing Arts Scholarship from NHS & went off to be a MLS & NBA Professional Dancer. She is a present Choreographer for NHS dance team! I hope my youngest graduates from NHS. The nurse Michelle is truly wonderful.

I went to Nipomo High School and the teachers and staff go up and beyond to help their students pass. They all act as role models to their students. They've helped me turn my life around. Now I am working on becoming a firefighter for the state of California.

NHS is a great school. The teachers, administration, and students all work together to create the perfect academic environment.

I <3 NHS!!! i went there for my frosh and soph years and it was amazing. but... i think the school should do the block schedule thing. i go to smhs now and i have a much less homework load (so i can focus on my extracurriculars and volunteer work at the hospital) fewer classes to fous on and much better grades. I honestly think if the school was designed with the block i would've done much better academically at NHS. It has the beauty, the students, the teachers, and the high technology available for the students. I just wish it was a block schedule school like SMHS i really would've done better.

NHS has been a magnet to some of the best teachers in the Lucia Mar School District. Teachers have come to a brand new school with great enthusiasm to fulfill the mission to provide the best environment for kids to matriculate in. My son, 16 yo, started as the first freshman class two and a half years ago. Coming from a small private school, it was a large school by contrast, however, it still provided small class sizes of 20 students with teachers that took special interest in knowing individual students, their interests and individual needs. My son was able to get the classes in math and science that he wanted and was even able to participate in sports (tennis). He is looking forward to college and his advisors are very helpful in directing his search. Overall, NHS is a very well run school starting with the principal and his staff.

NHS is the best! I now have two students attending there in grades nine and eleven. The campus is lovely, the faculty and kids are great! There are many opportunites for seeking Colleges and to prepare for it. The staff is very approachable and encouraging. My daughter has had the unique privelege of being there since the school opened in 2002-03 and had both of the wonderful counselors on staff there. Her high school experience has been postitive from day one, thanks in large part to the great staff. There truly is no teacher she has encountered who's not dedicated to the kids. NHS has had some typical problems but they don't cause major interuptions for the students or staff. Parent involvement is a plus with boosters and incividual subjects.

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.

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.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.
