Nevada Joint Union High School District Reviews

Our school district is very complex. While having a very low population in the cities or towns around, these small schools create somewhat of a brotherhood between students. Everyone knows everyone which is a good and bad thing depending on your reputation. This school district is all about the kids though. They offer lots of classes and try to get kids the classes they need for college. There is not a ton of diversity being in a small neighborhood however. The teachers are also very laid back but informative helping each kid with their issues. Last but not least, our administrators are very into what is new. Helping people fit in, knowing what too look for, and they are extremely nice, sincere, and easy to talk too!

My personal experience in the Nevada Joint Union High School District (NJUHSD) was different than most students because I attend Ghidotti Early College High School. However, I found Ghidotti was the most amazing opportunity for high school students. It offered outstanding academic courses and pathways for young students and college readiness like no other school in the district, because you already are in college! If you're looking for a high school, look no further than William and Marian Ghidotti Early College High School in the NJUHSD.
Awesome! All my teachers are not only amazing, but passionate about their teaching. Nevada union teachers remind me of models for an Add about a chia seed drink. They have good advanced placement classes that are actually challenging.
