As a 2012 graduate of this high school , I'm here to say that this school is really going down hill and the future isn't looking good. While NHS isn't horrible it's getting there. The CAPT scores are horrible this school is ranked very low and practice for CAPT is never taken seriously at all, infact many teachers didn't care. For a such a low ranking school the teachers at this school are actually very smart and very helpful , however the classes are over crowded and sometimes that takes away from the learning and teaching process. The school itself is very dirty and gross (remember I graduated before they began changing it) there are papers all around the school , often gross things on the floor things I never saw in any other high school that I visited. Also with afterschool activites I felt that they never really encouraged you to join and just "yelled" you if you didn't. Same with sports as well . This school has very poor leadership as well and no pride .This school is enthincally diverse which causes alot of problems . Overall if I was a parent I would not send my child here at all. There are much better schools in nearby towns which so much more to offer.

As a freshman in Naugy High, I find this school to be great. It's easy to go to teachers for help knowing they'll try to help us. Even though there could be some problems around, it's still a good school. The school also organizes events sometimes that are fun to the students.

As a senior graduating during the toughest times known to this education system I must comment that this institution is doing its best with what its being given. Poor leadership from Naugatuck's elected board officials have ultimately led to this districts demise. Sad to see things come to this, proud to have been educated here.

I attend this school myself, a freshman, soon to be sophmore. And personally, I like it. Maybe there is a few problems here and there, but what I like the most is all the fun stuff we get to do all together as NHS students, and the awesome relationships we have with the teachers.

By far one of the saddest academic programs around. The teachers are uninvolved and standards are pathetic. I was alarmed to learn my child was going to school to watch movies! The text books are decades old in some classes. I feel as a parent I have done an injustice by placing my child into this school system. Luckily their home environment was strong and academies are a very crucial subject in our family which in turn gave them the opportunity to pursue college. (With mention that they were far behind for the first few semesters)

We moved here two years ago. My son graduated from NHS last year and now attends UConn in Storrs and my daughter is currently a freshman at NHS taking all Honors courses for her core curriculum classes. She is also very involved in sports and clubs. From my visits into the school (all good reasons), and from what my children tell me from our daily conversations about the goings-ons in the school, I feel confident that they are receiving a well-balanced, stimulating and safe education. Almost all of the teachers my children have had, have been wonderful...supportive, interactive, challenging and educationally adept in their particular area of expertise. Bravo to the Naugatuck School System for their dogged determination in giving our children an education for the future!

My son is a junior at NHS. He has thrived academically as well as with extracurricular activities. The teachers are very communicative with him and he thrives at this high school. He has a high GPA. I don't feel as if he could have done so without teamwork displayed by the NHS staff.

I really like this school. My son has went from getting failing grades from an out of state school to passing grades at naugatuck high and the teachers are really good with returning emails and or phone calls and if there is a problem with your child they are on the phone calling.
