The whole environment in this school is depressed and angry. The teachers hate the students, the administration doesn't care about the students and just assumes they are all delinquents or that they will never go beyond high school. The students (unsurprisingly) have no respect for the teachers, administration or school buildings/property therefore the school is always in a disastrous state and covered with grafitti. Overall a horrible school. AVOID at all costs.

The counselor was horrible when I went there. I had to take 2 semesters of math in order to go to a 4 year school after I graduated. In 8th I was in Algebra 1. They put me in general math in 9th grade?! This school doesn't seem to expect graduates to go to a 4 year university, if they graduate at all. They need to pay attention to all the students, not just the rich ones from Ocean Shores. Mr. Loomis was an excellent Science teacher, although I wish there was more work in dissection and chemistry. Mr. Bouma IS and continues to be one of the most amazing teachers at NBH. Wish I had him for English, I might have finished college. Mrs. Sherwood is a sweetheart. Mrs. Nesmith is the only one who pushed me, and saw that I had potential. Mr. Brannan, scarry chimo.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Washington used the Measurements of Student Progress (MSP) to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, in writing in grades 4 and 7, and in science in grades 5 and 8. The MSP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Washington. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
