Nixa Public Schools Reviews

Nixa Public Schools are very good at two things: What schools are for, academics. And providing activities for students to enjoy, like sports and extracurriculars. It has a few issues, with some abnormal policies and low diversity, but that is not the fault of the school, and is only because of the area it operates in having low diversity. It desevres to be a Blue Ribbon School, though.

Over all I had a very positive experience growing up in Nixa and going through the school system. I participated in football, track and marching band and always felt that Nixa did a tremendous job supporting both their athletic programs and their other extracurricular activities. The environment created in the Nixa school system was always one that I felt was very positive and inviting to anyone who went to school in Nixa. I do wish that Nixa would show some initiative and incorporate advanced placement classes into their curriculum because that was something they never had when I went to school there.
My experience at Nixa High School has been positive overall. I transferred to Nixa High School my Sophomore year. It was a challenging, but great opportunity for me. I have been able to take advantage of the OTC Career Center Program, and will also be utilizing the A+ incentive for my continuing education. The teachers are great and always very helpful, always available for extra help when needed. They truly want to help the students succeed. I wish the High School was on a block schedule because the homework load would be distributed differently, and possibly less homework. This would be advantageous for students in extra curricular activities, as well as those who work after school and on weekends.
