I thought it was a free and open environment to meet great people! I am very fortunate to go somewhere that wants kids to succeed in academics and make you graduate and prepare you for college when it is needed. I wouldn't want to go anywhere else. The kids sometimes don't get along but that is like any place you go to but the administration is there to make things go right and I appreciate them for that. When times got hard teachers are there to hold students up and to make push past all the pain and struggle that comes along with improving yourself. Sports are always a great place to meet new friends and to build a system that will make you a more confident person in yourself and in others. I could say for my very self that before college I was very shy and closed off but after experiencing the life in high school I understand what you should do and shouldn't do.

Teachers are usually amazing or horrible, there are very few that qualify as mediocre. The high school is technically a Blue Ribbon school, although that title was earned in 2013, so take that however you want. Diversity is strong in terms of the LGBTQ+ community at Nixa. In terms of POC, the district is continuing to struggle despite growth.
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.
