The students at Needvile are very well behaved and respectful - most parents are very supportive. The faculty are another story. While most are professional, there seems to be quite a bit of favortism and nepotism there. The school needs to focus more on other things besides winning the UIL District Cup every year. I have never seen a school more obsessed with UIL than this one.

i was at this school for only a few weeks and then i had to move b/c of some family issues. well the main point is that i love that school. in the little time that i was there i really liked the school. it is a great school and they do focus on alot of academics. The highschool might seem frightening at first when you dont know anyone like i did, but the faculty and students will help you out. i was lost and didnt know much when i came in but then i just had to ask!!! i came to lamarCHS and trust me i would rather go back to NHS!!! the AP classes at lamar are jokes and the academic onez are worse...NHS pushed me ... and actually gave me work !!! at lamar i never get any homework or class work ..

I have lived in Needville my entire life. It once was a great school, but now I am just ashamed to tell anyone I live in this school district. The school is great for the above average and average student, but if you have a learning disabled child, this school is the biggest joke ever. The elementary and intermediate schools are great with children with ADHD and learning disabilities, but the Jr High and High School are a joke, and not even a good one at that. It is all who you are in the community, how rich you are, and whether they think you live the lifestyle they agree with. The school does not fairly and justly discipline every child the same. My son and daughter are a great example of this. I have now put my freshman daughter in a charter school and will never allow her to go back to NISD.

Don't expect much if your student has plans beyond a Jr. College. That is about as much as they encourage. Most AP classes are a joke and do not prepare students for passing the test. Athletics seems to be the most important program in the district. There is no choir or drill team and very little funding for the arts in general. I am highly dissappointed in the lack of help the counslors give students planning to go anywhere beyond the local junior college. There is very little aid in finding scholarship money and no encouragement at all!

I have been a teacher at Needville High School for 8 years and feel this is a fantastic school. We have great students here at Needville and a great teaching staff. It is easy to complain about the teaching when you can remain nameless(at least last nameless). Parents, if you are looking for a good school, feel free to visit Needville, Texas. I think you will like what you see.

When I was a student at NHS the school lost some of the best faculty it had. There's no doubt in my mind that the current faculty, or most of the current faculty, is exceptional in what they do, but some cannot measure up to those that were lost when I attended. This school's attempts to promote a positive image onto the students fail miserably. I have witnessed in my years of attendance and since what seems like the fall of the campus. The school has been noted for its academics, but most of its noteworthy academic accomplishments have been from prior classes that have already graduated or is losing interest. I admit the blame should not only rest with the school, but with the state's policies toward academic institutes. The school no longer prides itself on academics, but image. I've also noticed that some teachers shouldn't be employed.
