I have been going to Nettleton since I was in kindergarten, and would not want to go to any other school. I am currently a junior. Nettleton is a very diverse school, so you'll feel comfortable with anyone. Our teachers work hard to make sure you pass their class. Tutoring is available every day before and after school. We have the best coaches for every sport. If sports are not your thing, we also have many clubs to choose from. So, your child will be trained by the best. Nettleton is really involved with giving back to the community. Throughout the school year, there are tons of fundraisers held donating to local food pantries, hospital patients, and more!

I believe Nettleton High School is a great school to attend. In every student at Nettleton you can see everyone's true Raider Pride. Whether it is the football team on Friday nights, to the marching band on Saturdays. When it comes to academics, Nettleton High School has college courses through Arkansas State University, AP classes, Pre-AP classes, and the basic high school classes. Nettleton High School also offers tutoring schedules to insure that no student fails on whichever path they decide to take.
Nettleton has great teachers and class selection to better prepare you for your college experience. I had great teachers that were willing to help me and help me accomplish my goals. I am very fortunate that I attended Nettleton and that I will be a Nettleton Graduate. I truly appreciate all of the hours of hard work and help that the teachers and staff put into making my high school experience so wonderful!
