NHS has a few good teachers that are doing the best they can, however, overall the school is very disappointing. Inconsistency in handling issues, teaching only to pass tests, sports placed over academia, lack of critical thinking skills, no accountability, and an administration that relies on bullying tactics instead of respect and communication. I have never before seen or heard so many students who truly HATE high school, or teachers who can't stand their jobs. High school is supposed to be the best 4 years of our lives. Sadly, at this school, that's not the case. It's not an "overcrowding issue", it's a character issue. The district teaches character building, but it is more of a "do as I say, not as I do" from the talking heads, instead of a behavior system the faculty and staff live by, and the kids (and parents) see right through it. The students are learning this behavior through daily interaction and it will, unfortunately, shape their lives in a negative way. So very sad. Can't wait to take my kids OUT of this school.
