Amount of homework: Agree

Homework is not overwhelming. I have an honors and an IB student. They both are able to complete their homework in a reasonable time frame.

New to Nease this year with a 9th and 10th grader. So far the academic rigor is great. The teachers are really going out of their way to help their students during the power hour lunch break. They offer tons of clubs and sports so your teens can get plugged into a smaller group and meet others. The email response time from teachers has been amazing! GREAT SCHOOL! Hoping they keep up the good work!

What a terrific school. The academic opportunities are tremendous. They have IB, AVID/STARR, Honors, academies-Comminication, Engineering and the # 1 NJROTC program in the nation. The arts are well represented, Theater, Musicals, Chorus and a award winning Band. Athletics are well represented with every sport. The best part is the student make up. With all the programs in the school, a very diverse population exists. Bullying is not tolerated, everyone is nice, really. Glad to have my children as part of this community.

When you sign up for your classes, you have an idea of homework required. You will have more for IB or AP classes.

Just ask the marching band how awesome this school is! Pride of St. John's County in all aspects, not just marching band! IB, Advanced Placement, ROTC, athletics, great academics - it's got it all!

I started to attend Nease halfway through my senior year. I came from a very under privileged High School in GA. It was a HUGE upgrade. Some students complained that it was the "poor" school, but it was far from that (especially since they were driving Mercedes and BMW's). I sadly didn't get to play sports there due to coming in to late. But, I did get to enjoy their amazing art program! It was a great school and I loved all the teachers that I had. Academically I think that it was wonderful, especially for a public school. And even though I was there for a short time period, I made life long friends!

Nease High School is, by far, an A++ school. The teachers are excellent and each level of curriculum is beneficial to all types of students. The kids, just like any other school, are mixed in personalities and "styles," so to speak. Anywhere you go, you get the mix of not-so-great kids with attitudes to match, but in all honesty, Nease has some pretty great kids. Bullying is never tolerated and there is a very low level of fighting/drug/alcohol abuse, if even any at all. Like I said, you get the mix of the good and the bad, though. Deciding between Nease and Ponte Vedra? Definitely choose Nease! After all, who doesnt want to graduate and say they graduated from one of the top 100 schools?

Overall not a bad school but definetly has suffered losses when most students with high academic scores left for Ponte Vedre and along with them excellent staff. Left now with a B rating is evident of the slippery slope we are going down. Knowing what I know now I would buy into another school district. Over the last 2 years that my child has attended I have come to the realization that there is little to no recourse with the administration here and all they care about is that your child is "no trouble". They do not show concern AT ALL if he or she fails. You are a "good student" if you have no disciplinary issues. They will notify you THAT day if your child misses a class (a good thing) but will not even send a note home if there are failing grades.
