Ive for the most part always had a good experience with niles high school. The teachers are friendly and helpful. I thought some teachers were a little worse then others.... but that's in any high school. One thing I didn't like was the dress code. No leggings, I feel honestly then girls should not be punished for boys not being able to control themselves.

I played volleyball 3 years and loved. I am now a committed player for lmc.They went above and beyond for us, even when covid hit. Which I really appreciated.

Niles Community Schools are ok. Some teachers are nice and motivating. It’s an ok place to make friends. They could work on the safety of having students not be near windows during a tornado drill. The counselors are not very helpful unfortunately. Most teachers make it very hard to understand subjects like math and science. Some teacher assistants are very nice, helpful, and understanding. The Niles Community Schools could really work on the way they discipline students. It’s very wonderful that they have musicals, plays, music programs, and etc. As well as a variety of sports. The food is not too bad, but they could at least try to work on the drinks arriving before expiration date.
I have always gone to Niles Community Schools and wouldn't want to have it any other way! Niles has some amazing teachers and a safe learning environment! I hope someday my kids can have the same great experience that I did.
