I attended Nimitz High School myself and I have to say that the involvement of the student body is enormous. Most of the students that have attended Nimitz in the past would agree that the teachers and faculty do as much as they can to be involved in the student's lives. They want[ed] us to succeed in life and they know that they are a big part of that. The teacher that runs the community service club is fantastic, everything that she has is put into her career. She keeps students wanting to come back and volunteer their time some more. The other Irving ISD schools have teachers that may come close to this, but do not quite reach the criteria. She is just one example of all the fine teachers that are on campus at Chester W. Nimitz High School in Irving, Texas. God Bless Nimitz!
They seem to be interested in the way kids dress at this school instead of teaching. I have talked to parents at the other Irving High Schools and they don't seem to focus on dress. Another thing the 10th grade Vice Principal doesn't have time to return phone calls or talk to the students that she is in charge of.
I am a graduate of Nimitz. For residents of IISD, Nimitz is the best school.
Nimitz needs a new leader. The administration is looking for the easy way out and not for what is in the best interest of it's students. Schedule changes take an act of Congress and it shouldn't be hard to tell when a student and teacher are not benefiting from a class by the grades earned or issued. All of my dealings with the administration have been horrendous. I graduated from Nimitz and my parents never had the problems I have encountered with my teen. I now understand why so many parents have moved their teens to Irving High School.
I am a Viking Alumni and just want to let everyone that Nimitz is such an awesome school. The teaching and the atmosphere are a one of a kind experience. If I were given the chance to do high school all over again, I would do it with a quickness as long as it was back at Nimitz!
I am a graduate of Nimitz, and I think that it is one of the best schools in the Dallas/Ft. Worth metroplex. I graduated in 1991. Most of the teachers I had were wonderful. The school spirit was tremendous. There wasn't really a problem with gangs and stuff like that. We were all just one big happy family!! My son just started kindergarden at J.O. Davis this year, but I am hoping that when he is ready for high school, that he will be able to go to Nimitz.
I loved this school for many years that I continue to follow up with all the programs. I've been out of school for many years and continue to see former students achieving great goals that faculty and staff have help[ed] to inspire. Go Vikings class of 2004.
