I really like NHS a lot. I'm not saying my experience has been perfect, but compared to other schools I've attended (and I've really gone through a variety) I'm for the most part very impressed by the student body and fairly impressed by the staff. There are certain specific teachers and a few people in administration that are very difficult to deal with, but the resistance to that sort of behaviour is admirable among students and teachers alike. I'd highly recommend Nipomo High to anyone looking for a happy and smooth hs experience!
Review Nipomo High School
I rate my school as great! The teachers are friendly and approachable and have a positive atitude on campus. There is always room for improvement in anything and some teachers are better than others, but overall the and students have a great realationship with their teachers. I have emailed my teachers on weekends, went in during lunch or after school and feel they are caring and helpful whenever possible. I did not rate my school the greatest because i don't know how to compare it to other schools teaching style, but i do know i'm happy with my teachers. My history teacher helped me overcome my fear of speaking in front of people. Several of my teachers have even come out to my games to give support. I feel thankful for such a knowlegedeable, approachable and supportive teaching staff.
Nipomo High School in located in a small community on the California Central Coast. They are a tight knit community and the teachers work hard at educating their students. It is evident that they care for their students. They strive to make sure that each student achieves not only academic success but their personal best. They have a high graduate rate and produce many students that go on to colleges, or to do great things. The campus is clean and well maintained. The only complaint that I have is that because it is a smaller school, the choices of classed are not as extensive as I would like.
