Nashua School District Reviews

The Nashua School District was very good for me. It certainly is not one of the more renowned school districts, as it doesn't have a staggering number of graduates going to 4 year colleges, but I believe it is very good and handling the diversity it has. Whether or not you want to go to college and be a doctor, or go to trade school and be an electrician the Nashua School District can help you, and actually give you a competitive advantage. The one part where it is lacking however, is in helping students find what path is right for them, but that is a very hard task and certainly one that very few school districts excel at.

Academics and college readiness were average at both the high school. Clubs were poorly advertised and funded, unless it was related to athletics. Teachers were all very kind and overall caring of students and their education. There were lots of diversity at the schools which I was very grateful for. Sports and the Arts were very much supported here.
My biggest complaint is administration. But the academics and other fields are pretty good. Aspen, the website the district uses is less than spectacular as well. Most teachers are good but there is a mix of less great teachers as well. There are never enough subs available.
