By far the most spirited and exciting school! The principal is very involved and aims to help us achieve! He is dedicated and driven to make our school the best, brightest, safest, and overall the most fun! Another great aspect of NHS is the arts. The band traveled to the Rose Bowl to march in the Rose Parade aftering being invited in 2016. The chorus program has earned many awards and frequently travels internationally. There are clubs to suit every interest! We have the Anime Club, Stand-Up Paddle Boarding Club, Pyschology Club, National Organization for Women (NOW) Chapter, Smash Bros Club, Harry Potter Club, Ultimate Frisbee, Film Club, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and GSA (Gay-Straight Alliance). We have everything from football to volleyball, cross country to golf, and even flag football! Also come to football games every Friday night in the fall! We also are very famous for our 3rd quarter tradition....SILLY STRING!

I loved my 4 years at Niceville. The teachers genuinely care about your education and forming relationships with you that will encourage, motivate, and push you to become the best version of yourself. Academics are taken seriously. Athletics are also valued. There is a wonderful balance between academics, leadership, athletics, and community offered at this school. I would recommend it to anyone!
I loved this school! Not all schools have school pride like this one does. EVERYONE gets involved, and they're lead by the principal! My learning experience throughout my 4 years here was phenomenal. I learned so many things, met so many new people, and had great experiences along the way. I wouldn't change a thing!
