You get to know everyone very well, and all of the teachers are very kind and helpful, and know about what they teach. On the sports teams, if you want to play, then you play, because our school is small enough that tryouts aren’t needed, so no matter how good you are at a sport, you are encouraged to play. We have an award winning theatre and music program that is very fun to be a part of. There are a few things that our school struggles with. One is that the principals don’t normally stay for very long. And two, that our school is being renovated in the middle of the school year, during the school day.

Being a former alumni of the Theater Department at NMSHS, the plays and musicals we put on are just fabulous every year! Last year, we performed the famous musical CATS, by Andrew Lloyd Webber and it was one of the best musicals the town feels that we have ever put on! I love being a part of the Nederland Theater Department. I feel it's super special because we are a small high school and knowing literally every single person makes our performance on stage much better! On Graduation week, we also have Senior Recognition Night and the White Rose Ceremonies where teachers, faculty, and the students who are graduating get to recognize one another for their outstanding performance throughout the years and recognize how special a friendship with a teacher meant to them.
Nederland isn't like other schools. With less than 250 kids, almost everyone knows each other, from tiny sixth graders to the colossal seniors. Teachers are always invested and personally knowledgable with each student. Little to no harassment takes place, no matter who you are. Unfortunately, due to the small amount of students, there isn't as much funding for Advanced and AP classes, and the school often sees crucial classes being thrown away. The administration has gone through 4 different principals in 5 years and has thrown out many of the excellent athletic coaches along the way. Over all its a good school if one is academically motivated and involved.
