I graduated Naaman in 2007. Overall I'm finding that it was an OK school. Sure the sports programs are strong but there isn't much else for students to become involved in. Also, I believe that many of the students lack the motivation to find out information for themselves. I remember becoming bored in required classes simply because some 'class clown' couldn't stay quiet long enough for the teacher to teach. Many of the teachers will become extremely involved with students if they see the effort however most students tend to sit in class doing nothing. I don't think that high school helped me much at all. I feel that I wasted a lot of valuable time learning 'required subjects' and I really had to start over once I got to college.
We've only been at Naaman this year, but if meet the teacher night was an indication of what we can expect-it will be an excellent school year. All of the teachers we encountered were so nice, friendly. and supportive.
Unfortunately, this high school appears to be a place where students can get by without a lot of effort. The principal allows the students to take cell phones into class, and a lot of students spend their time in class texting each other. A teacher is emplowered to take a cell phone from a student if it's being used in class, but very few will unless if a student is talking on it in direct defiance of the teacher. Homework is virtaully non-existant. Most teachers give time in class to complete assignments. On the other hand, teachers do offer tutoring before and after school. This school requires no effort to get by. It's too bad that life won't be so easy for students after graduation. I don't think that the school prepares students for college or the real world.

Naaman is amazing! There are a ton of things tho get involved in at Naaman. I was on the Varsity drill team. But there is football, track, soccer, baseball, softball, tenis, cheer, dance, powerlifing, and even more clubs to join. I loved being at that school!
It's a great school. The staff overall is great also they really care for the students.
Naaman is the best school ever. I enjoy being a student there. It has help me and given me many opportunities for my future. I just want to say that it's the best school ever! I would never transfer to another school.
Having transfered from NFHS to a Mississippi High School in the middle of my junior year, I would rate NFHS as a very positive learing environment that excells in student conduct and a strong athletic program. In any school there will be problems or issues that not everyone agrees on, but having been a student as NFHS and then transfering to Mississippi, I feel that NFHS is a wonderful school.
I would not reccomend this school to anybody. The students at this school are very unfriendly and lack discipline. If you are a parent, you will be completely unsatisfied with the school, I guaruntee it. Staff will refuse to respond to your emails.
As a first year student and previous student at Lakeview I can tell you that is great school that you should send your kids to. The teachers are great and really care. Although the football isn't good the track, cross country girls basketball, and track teams are very good. It is a primarily white school and most everybody gets along.
The faculty has no care at all of the enviornment it supplies its students with. With the school being younger in age, it sure is run down.
My son is graduating this year.This was definitely not the school for him. He is very smart but the teachers did not encourage him .There was no encouragement or direction from his coach so he gave up last year.Classes too big.Discipline bad.
My daughter attends/excellent academics/sports could improve..Music department is pretty good/parent involvement seems to be a 'little' above average/overall...Great school to attend
Home school before you send your child here. The class rooms are overcrowded with students sitting on the floor. Discipline seems to be a real problem here.
The students here are very out going and we make friend easily with anyone. The teachers here are great, they are nice but they still are strict enough to get us to do our work. They really know the information they are teaching. It seems every year we get new teachers, but these new teachers teach better than teh ones they replaced. Over all this is a good school.
Overall the school is pretty good. Wide variety of classes, activities and opportunities. Diverse student population. Typical parental involvement for a high school. Booster clubs for each activity: drill team, choir, football, etc.
I graduated Naaman in 2000. I will soon be a graduate of Texas Tech and Naaman really helped prepare me for college. Naaman is a recognizable school especially in academics. While at Naaman, I was given the oppertunity to be involved in Beta Club, Thespians, Student Council, and Drill team. It is a great all around high school.
