The turnover rate of Natalia schools teachers/faculty are very high, some teachers don't seem to give too much of an effort in helping students. The school seems more focus is on attendance rather than the quality of the education - clearly from reading the reviews of past and present students, you can tell the education given(english/grammer/spelling at least being the example here) was not the best. I was a substitute for over a year in NHS, and it was obvious to me and the students that even I cared more than the teachers working there each day. The elementary & middle schools are slightly worse off than the highschool. I am grateful my children are no longer students here.

I am a current teacher at Natalia and love every minute of it. Although there are challenges here, many teachers are expecting more from their students and providing the support for the students success. I am proud to be a Mustang and I know that our test scores will increase every year. Keep the faith, Natalia!

There is lots of room for improvment.

After teaching in Natalia for ten years, I can say that I do not feel that it will ever change. The teacher turnover rate is astronomical, and there is no continuity to the students education. The principal that started in the 2002-2007 is running a dictatorship where teacher and student morale student morale is extremely low. The superintendent is a weak leader for letting this downward spiral continue. I would not put my children in this school. I always promised myself that if I was working in a district which I would not let my children attend, first: I would try to make it better, and if that didn't work, I would go somewhere else where my time and talents were appreciated.

There are some really good teachers here, there are also some that don't care, but not many.I think this school has the potential to become number one, just give it time. Nearly 100% of last year's seniors were accepted into collage, that should say something.

I am a junior at Natalia and i think the reason why the scores were so low was because the students here don't put any effort into anything. They make themselves believe that they can't get any where in life. I'm not just blaming this on the students. We have a few teachers who don't care about the students education or just aren't meant for teaching. They teach as if we already know what we're supposed to do, and expect so much of us. In my oppinion, i think Natalia has a some of the best teachers, who not only teach great, but also care about your students future. I'm hoping that this school makes a few changes.

I am a senior at Natalia and I have to say the reason the test scores are so low is because the students do not try. Im a member of the class that brought the English scores up from 41% to 82% and that is because we cared about the school's image. We got tired of people looking down on us because we go to NHS. I would hate to be a student at Natalia after the Senior class of '07 leaves because it's all going to head down hill.

Well I was a softmore here last year in 2005 and I think the school was fine. Us students never tried to pass the test we just put anything just to get over with it. We always had too much pressure on us about test that we just wanted to get the test over with.I rated it with 2005 school year.

First of all i'm senior in natalia high school and the nerve of ya'll saying we are not the best school. Yeah we may not be rich or have high tax scores but did you ever stop to think that the reason why we're not highly educated is because the students don't try because all the negativity being talked about our school? So here we are thinking

Natalia is not the best school but they have came a long way to where they are know. They are tring to get the school up there were it needs to be and the tax scores were a lot beter this year in english for the 10th graders who are now in the 12th grade were 41% but they brought it up to 82%. Now thats a big jump for a school like this.

This school has great technology but the teaching and administrative staff is terrible & I don't recommend anyone to send their child here.
