I am a graduating senior from the class of 2014, this school has gone downhill dramatically in just my four years of attendance. It is hard to get help if you have any sort of problem, it took me months to talk to my guidance counselor for a schedule change for the next semester just for him to tell me I was too late to make the change. Some of the teachers are excellent but many just do not care about anything except standardized test scores. Teachers did not allow students to exempt exams even if they qualified for it just so they could get a bonus in their pay check. Going to this school is just the luck of the draw, like I said some teachers are excellent and some of the staff is exceptionally friendly. You really just have to harass the teachers and guidance counselors for any help at all. This school does not compare at all to the schools up north I was used to. Students here tend to be rude but that is just common in hernando county in general. I suggest if you do choose to attend or enroll your child make sure your voice is heard from the get go or you will receive no help. I have to admit Mrs.Ferlita was a great teacher, very kind, and would do anything for her students.

My son is currently a senior at NCTHS in the IT cluster and has done very well there. I believe his education at NCTHS has prepared him well for college. I am pleased to report that he was recently accepted at St Leo University. I am so glad we chose this school for him.

I graduated from Nature Coast Tech H.S. in 2008 and I can honestly say that although the school got in a lot of messes with their athletic department, I learned a lot academically. I was in the Health and Human service Cluster and in my senior year I decided to change to T.V. Production. Having the option of the T.V. Production cluster helped me realize what I wanted to do with my future, and I m currently attending a 4 year college studying communications. I have to thank NCT for offering the classes that opened my eyes up to what I truly have passion for. Yes, the school is receiving a lot of negative media right now, but I wouldn t have enjoyed my time at any other high school. While I attended the school it was still new only been open one year prior to my attendance, and having the options of this school helped prevent my parents from sending me to the Catholic high school. I recommend this school to anyone and I still talk about it with high regards to their academics, not just their athletics.

My daughter is a senior this year and transferred to that school from East lake in her junior year. She has been doing great at Nature Coast .. Seems to be a lot less drama and more attention to academics . Love the scheduling of classes as even and odd days . Other schools by the time you get into the lesson time is up . This way the classes are longer and you have less of them on a daily basis.. Great school .

Our experience with Nature Coast has been exceptional. With the volume of students they still give the sense of individual attention and really care. 5 Star

Simply outstanding! mrs. Schoelles and the teachers really deserve all of the credit. My son just graduated and i was very pleased with his accomplishments at nchs.. I know that he will move on in his life, but one thing for sure he will always be proud to have been a nature coast shark. Thank you for giving my son the opportunity. Mrs. M.

I have a daughter that graduated from NCT last year and a son who will be a junior this coming year. I have had nothing but great experiences with this school. My daughter is now a college student attending a private nursing school. She plans to graduate in 2011 with a bachelors in nursing. Thanks to the allied health program at Nature Coast Technical HS where she was enrolled her four years there. My son is in the engineering program and is enjoying it and planning to further his education after graduation.

I am a student at NCTHS graduating this year (2009). I know there are some drawbacks, but I believe this school has some of the best faculty, and a great set of resources and statistics. I love this place, and I will def. miss it when I go to college. Great sense of school spirit, a great student body, and wonderful classes make a place where everyone would be envious if they didn't attend.

Nature Coast is a good school, but the fact that it is a newer school takes attention and students from all of the other schools in the county making Nature Coast hated by many other schools. It's supposed to be a technical school, not a private athletic school that steals all of the attention from other schools. I currently attend Hernando High School so i can't say that Nature Coast down has a bad staff or students. But everybody just gives up on their own school and goes to NCT because they don't like being at a worse school.

I have two grandaughters attending Nature Coast. What a really great school! The school spirit and sense of family is a throwback to the good old days of pep rallies and homecoming bonfires. Kudos to the great teachers that make Nature Coast the best high school in Hernando County.

I attended this school for a little while and the academics were absolutely horrible. Who would put five students trying to take an honors course into a class of 25 not trying to take an honors course? This school would. The only difference between the two was an extra paper for the honors! What good does that do? NOTHING.

Nature Coast needs a review. My daughter has been there three years now. she is a honor student. she has teachers who are great but the administration and guidance need to improve. my daughter is going to be a senior and getting help with scholarships and credit checks is like pulling teeth. painful.

I am an Alumni from this Amazing High School! It allows you to choose your 'Major' of intrest and have fun and learn in the field of your intrest, while attending regular Math, English, and Science classes. The 'major's' offered are taught by the most amazing teachers. I would tell everyone to go there if I could. Although you do have to get choosen out of a lottery to attend the school, or by porfolio. I hope you choose this school for your children, or I should say TEENS. What a great experience.

This principal is good at looking like she cares, but behind the scene, if you're not in sports you get no support. If you want your kid to be in cheerleading or football, this is the school for you.

The principal at this school is terrific, she is very involved with the students and has a no nonsense attitude toward the students education. I believe that since this is a charter school more money needs to be distributed towards the concentrations instead of the sports program. In the music department the instruments need replacing and the teacher which is new this year, needs funding for sheet music. More money needs to be spent for the orchestra which nature coast is the only HS in the county to have one. Basically more emphasis on the Concentrations not sports, this is a charter school lets act like it!

I would choose this excellent school again. They are ok with 'outside of the box' kids and really cater to those that expect more out of an education. Good leadership, safe campus, the most De and AP classes available in Hernendo county. An excellent school that expects excellence out of students and gives them them the tools in which to reach for it and the support they need to succeed. I love the engineering wing which is unique, the nursing school, the auto shop, the culinary school, the law school, the list goes on and on! There is so much to say about this school that I would suggest a tour of the campus. I promise you will be plesantly surprised and amazed at the facilities available to the kids. You won't find better anywhere else!

Nature Coast is a new school that has accelerated from the first year to the second year by more than 100%. Principal not by choice in my opinion has to spend more time out of the school in 'meetings' for the county that makes no sense to me. Teachers are very helpful, of course always your few that are the 'sour' ones. Extracurriculars should not be so stressed but I think that is in every High School. Have not seen any parent involvment but really is there ever in High Schools. Dicipline is sort of a joke and saftey is taken very seriously. Overal quality is I would want any future student to attend Nature Coast.
