Niles McKinley is terrible. The teachers don't show much interest and it seems like they are there simply because they are getting paid. I went to Niles for two years before deciding to get home schooled. The school is terrible at controlling things such as bullying, drugs, people even bring alcohol to the school. They highly favor students that participate in athletics. It's overall not an enjoyable place to be, no air condition, the heat barely works. If you are looking for you kid to have an enjoyable, trouble free, good education, don't send them here.

I'm very dissappointed that trying to look up a scheduled events date, Homecoming, the Calendar of events has not been updated since last year. Additionally, there is not an email to the school, administration, or school board to direct these questions to.

Niles definitely isn't an amazing school, but it's got a lot of wonderful qualities. There are plenty of programs for the students such as computer club, speech and debate, drama, choir, Art and VisCom. As a former student, I became close to a few teachers because they treated us as young adults and not children and to me, that's a great thing to have in a high school. The bathrooms are horrible and need to be fixed. Not all the sinks have mirrors, theres tons of graffiti everywhere and most of the doors don't stay closed.

I loved being a Red Dragon! There is such a proud tradition at Niles McKinley. You won't find a better school any where.

As a whole for Niles City Schools I think they are bad. My son has gone thru the system since kindergarten and is now in 10th grade. There are not many teachers who truly care and they are all about passing the tests to move the kids along to the next grade,which I believe is the way it is most everywhere these days.

I am a student at NHS, and although it is not a brand new school, it is not that bad. Yes it could use a bunch of new everythings, but it still has great teachers and everything.

Both of my children graduated from here and are doing fantastic in college. Of course, they took advantage of every academic opportunity available. They had great attendance, participated in many activities, and made terrific friends. The teachers helped them whenever they asked or needed it.

I am a graduate of Niles McKinley in 04. The school has diminished over the years but the quality of the teachers is still some of the best I've seen. Students must find their way but there is help if they put the time in. College processes were not the easiest as the guidance staff is small and overworked but the teachers and coaches pick up some of the slack. The building definitely needs some work and the standards of all of the students should be raised. Students tend to be put on a class track very early in their career at Niles City..either College bound or Career center bound. Diversity is an issue..there is not much within Niles but that is changing year by year. Parent involvement is low, The speech team as well as the band and drama club are excellent and provide a great basis for students.

The quality of the academic program is what the individual student puts into it. My daughter will be graduating this year and I can truly say that she has gotten a great education. However, she put alot of time into her education. The marching band is above excellent, hats off to Mrs. Dean and Mrs. Redmond. They produce a top quality band every year. The speech team is also something to be proud of. The devotion of the coaches to the students is absolutely wonderful. Mr Revezzo is the best at what he does. He makes sure every student is prepared to do their'cut' every week. He is the best. Niles city schools is among the best

Although the school has diminished in quality, both educationally and physically, students may still obtain a standard high school education. Most students take generalized courses, but there are still honors courses available to those who want to achieve academic success. Niles McKinley is not the best school in the area, but it is not horrible either. You have to make the best of your situation.

This school may not be the cleanest, but it is a very nice place to socialize and learn.
