The leaders at NHS have a servant's heart - serving the needs of the teachers, staff and students. I appreciate their consideration of the students, faculty and staff opinions in making decisions. #DragonNation #gladtobehere #iamNacISD

Great school with considerably more course offerings than other county schools. Great principal and teachers who care about the success of my children.

As a senior at Nacogdoches High School my opinion on the school is not a nice one. Some of the academic programs are sufficient, but only because some of the teachers actually care about where their students are heading after high school. Others just seem to follow the handbook and 'do their jobs'. Extracurricular activities are really what make the school fun. Sports have gotten better every year, but the best extracurricular activity is band because they work hard and keep up their reputation. Also there's tons of parental involvement. It's pretty much a requirement in that activity. Throughout the school though, there's not much to see of parents except when they're checking their kids out of school for doctors appointments. The administration thinks that enforcing a strict dress code is going to make our grades and level of activity better, but in the end it's going to raise riot.

NHS suffers from trying to be too much to too many people; you simply cannot cater to individual parents and custom-make different standards for each student. NHS actually discourages teachers from assigning homework, and then holds them responsible for students who are 'left behind.' Our students need limits and need to be held accountable for both behavorial problems and their apathy.

Quality of academic programs is low. This school has a difficult because of a very low budget. The Advanced Placement classes are good..with a a good group of teachers that teach them. Music program is the best in all of East Texas. Parent involvement is overall poor. However, parents living in the north side of town are very involved.

The quality of the academic programs is lacking. I know of several children how graduate in the top 25% of there class yet when they get to college - University of Texas, TExas A&M, SFA, Angelina Jr COllege who return and say that they were not prepared becuse the teachers at the High SChool did not hold the Academic Standards high enough to cause them to learn how to study.

I am a student at Nacogdoches High School and it is a wonderful school! I am involved in many extracurricular activities such as: Campus Crime Stoppers; National Junior Honor Society; Class Officer Board, and Key Club. Nacogdoches High School has many extracurricular activities for students. I also love my teachers. They want to help you make good grades, but they don't want to help too much because this could keep a child from learning. The teachers, in my opinion are excellent at their jobs. I currently have all A's and always have since entering the Nacogdoches School System. I have learned so much in this school and have done great. I have been commended on all my state required tests and i am also in the top 1% in my class ranking. This school also has great police officers who protect the school. Nacogdoches High is a wonderful place to learn.
