At Nixa High School, I'm involved in sports and notable academic classes. The athletics are a great environment and always do well. At Nixa, you even if you aren't involved in sports, there are plenty of other ways to get involved such as band, choir, and after school clubs! Nixa's academics are good, but they're also expanding, and getting even better. They have recently added more AP classes and the AP Honor roll, which looks great on College Applications. One thing Nixa could improve on is diversity and adding the IB program or having weighted grades.

My Experience has been poor, They can teach lessons but the staff has a large percentage that is completely lazy and rude! I have had years that are miserable and others that are at best tolerable. The Admins and Counselors do not care for the students or their future. Here it is about the strict rules and guidelines if you do not follow their expectations you will be punished even when it makes no sense. Their policy on tardies and absences makes little to no sense and doesn't encourage students to prepare themselves for the future(or as they call it "the real world") I hope this helps everyone make this place a better environment.
Nixa has lots of opportunities for students from a wide variety of backgrounds. The band program is incredible! There are lots of clubs you can get involved in, and if you find something lacking, you have the power to improve it. If you care about something and can get a teacher to sponsor you, you can even start your own club.
Your experience here is mostly dependent on what you are willing to put in. If you put in the effort, you'll learn a lot in some of Nixa's more challenging programs.
