This school has some bad points and some good points. There are a lot of good opportunities for students but there are also some ridiculous things. For one thing some of the teachers are not cut out to teach! In a few teachers classes just about everyone is failing or hanging on by their fingers.Even kids who work and study like crazy. (Don't get me wrong there are some pretty amazing teachers too!) Does this not give the hint that this teacher is not doing their job very well? The students in this/these class(es) are not learning anything due to the poor education they are receiving. Its not fair to the kids who actually want to learn something. Anyway there are also plenty of great things about NPHS that deserve some credit such as the extracurricular activities and the academic achievements. Its an overall good school.

I don't really have any positive comments towards this school. Some teachers may be nice and helpful, but others are a real pain to have to deal with. The kids' behavior is out of control, and the drama is more than I have ever had to experience. And nobody, I mean NOBODY accepts you for who you are. There are not very many opportunities this school offers as well, and to say the very least, this school does not prepare you for real life. I am thanking my parents for enrolling me in an Arizona high school after moving from this horrible area, as NP High School is nothing compared to my current one, which offers classes such as learning how to fly a plane- even helping you get an aviation license. If only I could give NP high school five stars, but I just can't...

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Ohio used the Ohio Graduation Test (OGT) to test students in grade 10 in reading, writing, math, science and social studies. State averages displayed on public school profiles include public schools only. State averages displayed on private school profiles include private schools only. The OGT is a high school graduation requirement for public schools and chartered private schools. The OGT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of Ohio. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.

About the tests


Ohio uses the Performance Index to provide an overall indication of how well students perform on its standardized tests each year. The Performance Index scores are based upon how well each student does on all tested subjects in grades 3 through 8 and 10. Schools and districts earn anywhere from 1.2 points for each student scoring at the advanced level to zero points for each untested student. The Performance Index ranges between 0 and 120, with 100 as the statewide goal for all students.

No Value-Added data was reported for this school.

About the tests


In 2010-2011, the Ohio Department of Education used the Value-Added Measure to show how much growth students made on the Ohio Achievement Test since the last school year. The state expects that student test scores will show an average year's worth of growth compared to test scores from the previous year. Ohio's Value-Added Measure is not the same as Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP), a federal measure which uses different criteria.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
