I loved the teachers, they were caring, helpful, encouraging, and supportive! They were considerate in assigning work and they were extremely knowledgable in their respected fields. The campus had an amazing cohesiveness and all the students felt welcomed and safe.

This school districts had a number of alternative education opportunities which I greatly benefited from. As a recent graduate, I felt the teachers and staff took a personal interest in my academic success. I may not have graduated without the flexibility of staff to help students in varying situations succeed. I cannot speak for any other schools than the one I attended, but if the teachers are trained across the board in helping student succeed, I would say it is worth wild to enroll a child within the district.
NHUHSD has both positive and negative aspects. Going through the system as an International Baccalaureate student, I believe I received the best education, resources and treatment the district had to offer. I can't speak for the experience of other students on campus not in the program. We have some very dedicated staff and faculty, but also a few who are extremely difficult and were detrimental to my education.
