Nashua High School South is an AWFUL school. Administration is TERRIBLE. Bullying has gone out of the roof and teachers do not care anymore. I have had problems with the Nashua Public School district for years now and the bullying issues are unbelievable. The SRO's and Administration will NOT help you with any issues you are having. They brush it off. If you have kids DO NOT let them attend a Nashua Public School because they will have the WORST experiences ever. Stick to BG or go to another city, because you will have MANY MANY issues with the Nashua Public High Schools.
Nashua South is a good school. They have great teachers and facilities, but the adminstration runs it poorly. Scheduling is always a nightmare and dealing with the guidance offices is usually awful. This is not a problem for over achievers with active parents. These students can get an excellent education from well qualified teachers and have a wide range of strong programs available to them. However, for the under achiever with absent parents these problems more negatively effect them, which makes this not the best school for those students. Overall though, it really is a good school because of its teaching staff, equipped facilities and wide range of options.
Because of Jeff Smith ( teacher ) of the My Turn class. My son is a new student at Nashua South and Mr. Smith has been a tremedous help to me as a mom. I wish all teachers were interested in their students well being as Mr.Smith is.!
Mu daughter attended Nashua High South...she graduated with all A's, I found the teachers to be caring, involved. They offered plenty of extracurricular activities, and were always eager to sit with you and talk if you had an issue you were concerned about.
We moved up to New Hmapshire July 15,2006, from New York,and enrolled my son in Nashua South. I was very pleased with the school and had heard great things about it. The teachers genueinly care for each of their students. Even though my son really does not like school in general, he seems to want to succeed,and will with the help from his headmaster,who is very dedicated, I am sure he will. I am very happy with Nashua High School South
Nashua High South is a great place for anyone who wants to take avail of the oppurtunities available to them. The school has a wide variety of classes, as someone before me said, and the district makes an effort to allow students who are interested in a class which isn't offered, travel to a school where they can explore their interest. Most teachers seem to care about each individual student. The major downfall, which just started this year, is that most extra-curricular clubs and activities (not including sports) have been cancelled, including language honor societies. This is because the teachers are on strike because the district has failed to renew their contracts, and raise their salaries for experience and cost of living expenses. If you or your child attend a school in the Nashua School district, please support the teachers so that the issues can be resolved.
I don't understand why parents keep mentioning the issue of overcrowding. Yes there are over 2,500 kids in the school but I feel that it has never been a problem. I am currently going into my junior year of high school. As a student at Nashua High School South I feel that there are many possibilities for me to take advantage of. The first thought that comes to mind is the selection of classes that are offered. There is everything from Great American Films to Zoology to Pre-Engineering. Every kid that goes to South can find at least one class that intersets them. Besides the wide variety of classes there are also many AP classes that are available. Most parents would complain about fights or boring teachers but it doesn't matter what high school you attend there will always be fights or boring teachers. NHSS is a great school.
I'm a student at Nashua High South and in the middle of my Freshman year. I have absolutely loved my experience there. There are a ton of students and some of my classes are very large, but the teachers, for the most part really do care about every one of their students and provide after school help nights a few times a week. Since there are about 2,500 students attending, you are a statistic, and many parents worry that their child can just get 'swallowed' in a sense. The Students who succeed are the students involved in any sort of extra curricular activity-even if it's x-box club, or the football team. There are tons of athletic, music, and other programs to try. There you make tons of friends that share the same interests as you. There is something for everyone at NHSS.
