Nogales Unified School District Reviews

My overall experience at Nogales High School was one to remember. I met a lot of different people that really had a positive impact in my life and education. One thing I would change is some of the staff, so educators in the school had a really negative attitude or had a serious case of favoritism. I had to go to the extent of getting a tutor outside of school for one of my classes in order to receive the letter grade I wanted to achieve. However, not all teachers had a negative impact on me, some really loved their job and it showed upon teaching. Some of these teachers include my freshmen year Spanish teacher, my graphic design teacher, economics teacher, and AP English teacher. All these people made these four years truly something to remember. Although, Nogales High School is not perfect I will always be an Apache.

I had a great experience being schooled in the Nogales Unified School District. Being a border town Nogales offers a variety of positive qualities one could take with them into their adult life. I did all my schooling from Pre-K to High School graduation in the district and I loved it. The community environment mixed with the rich Mexican roots shared among my peers showed that if one of us makes it we can all make it. There is great success in sports including baseball, track and field, and basketball. Although primarily a Hispanic district there is a variety of cultures in the district primarily in the teachers and faculty.
My experience at the schools in the Nogales Unified School District has been wonderful. The environment is so friendly and safe. Since Nogales Unified School District is located in Nogales, Arizona which is right on the border of the United States of America and Mexico, people from this town get to live a life they could not live anywhere else. The staff and teachers at the schools are understanding and make the students feel welcome every time they enter campus. For the most part, everyone in the community has been raised the same . This gives people an understanding of what others may be going through. Being a student in the NUSD has taught me to be a better person and reach my full potential at all times.
