Nazareth Area School District Reviews

As a current high school junior, I would like to applaud the Nazareth Area High School staff for their overwhelming sense of commitment and dedication to helping their students succeed. Mr. Alan Davis, school principal, is an excellent leader and is widely recognized for his devotion to the arts, sports, academics, and any other collegiate organization under the sun. He is open to new ideas brought on by both students and other staff members. Additionally, he is a proud supporter and attends almost every single event that recognizes a Nazareth student. The high school staff prepares their students well for the challenges of college and beyond. Students are encouraged to speak to their teachers whenever doubtful and are provided a VAST array of various courses and clubs that they can choose from. I would most definitely recommend the Nazareth Area School District to any prospective student due to their safety precautions, methods of implementing rules, and encouraging actions.

I graduated from Nazareth in 2016 and am greatful for everything I gained from my high school education. Nazareth is a great public school that is safe, clean, and excellent at fostering students’ talents and academic abilities. The AP teachers are especially talented at preparing students for the exam and college courses. The student body is overall welcoming and tolerant of others but could stand to be more diverse. The music and theater programs are impressive and students involved in them often receive Freddy awards and other achievements.
Nice school, and overall there were some good factors, but the Middle School truly did not provide any support towards becoming a High School student, and most importantly did not prepare students for Honors or AP classes (which I am taking). The rude awakening of High School was much worse than presumed due to the lack of study methods and learning experiences at the Middle School. For the teachers, some were wonderful, yet some were horrendous, and most definetely targeted struggling students. In an overall review, nice modern/newer school physically, but something’s were major drawbacks in the preparation for High School.
