Nation Ford High School Reviews

Nation Ford High School is a place of learning and great achievement. Grade point averages, extracurricular involvement, graduation rates, and educational opportunities soar there. The environment of the school is one of extreme competition and stress, which is the most negative thing about it. That being said, the teachers at NaFo are qualified in their fields and generally work hard with and for the students. Also, the administration genuinely cares about what goes on in the school. In light of great achievement, the guidance department sometimes pushes too hard and works for the school rather than the students. Still, NaFo is a place of opportunity. They have many clubs and electives not offered at other schools, such as Campus Connect and a required Government/Economics class. All in all, NaFo is a great school that does great things and produces students that impact the world in great ways.

I loved the environment at Nation Ford High School. Everyone was always very welcoming and helpful! I made a lot of new and long lasting friendships. Academic wise, the teachers were outstanding and always helpful!
My experience at Nafo will be well remembered. From Dirty Birds getting the crowd ready for big football games and from caring teachers who guide you academically. I for one have had the best high school experience once could imagine. I joined the Ultimate Frisbee team, participated in Model UN, and played varsity Lacrosse!
