I highly highly have enjoyed my experience going to Nampa High School. Even though Nampa is considered a lesser income, more homeless rate, and a less involved community. The administration and the teachers are what makes Nampa so great. Even though Nampa High doesn't win more than 2-3 games a season in any sport, the motivation and the pride of the school always runs deep! The students are motivated and the staff keeps it that way! The heart of Nampa truly lives in those who attend it!

Nampa High School has an excellent blend of cultures. There is a variety of clubs and activities available for students to join. There is issues with some of the teachers not putting effort into teaching their students. I would recommend having the curriculum and teaching plan changed regarding what some of the teachers are teaching. Academic wise, not very many kids are motivated to succeed and put an effort into school. That being said, for the kids who work hard and want to succeed in school, various AP and CP classes are offered. The school has excellent school spirit, and that is reflected at school assemblies and athletic events.
My experience at Nampa High has been better than most. I have met amazing friends and have had great teachers. Like most schools, however, there is an issue with inappropriate misconduct, an example of this being a scandal involving most of the sophmore class of this year. If there were one thing I could change it would be to give the arts program more attention to which they deserve. Nampa has two prides, the football team and the marching band. While receiving funding is almost impossible for Nampa high at the district level, they get the most fundraising money because they get more attention. Even other sports are not as advertised but the arts programs are especially neglected. This is a little frustrated when you've been in choir for 4 years and the pianos don't get tuned for years.
