Being a new student and a senior high school student, Nogales High School welcomed me warmly. In my little time there, I had so much fun and was treated well. The teachers were really awesome and creative in helping their students learn. They look after their students and help them keep up in their workload. I did not experienced too much difficulty since I caught up well. Along with that, the teachers were really good in discussing their lessons and very clear in explaining instructions. I also learn different perspective and point of views as they, themselves, share their opinions, which I think makes us much closer to each other. They also exercise discipline, teamwork, and responsibility, as well as safety. I strongly believe that their teaching is the best quality for the effective learning of the students. Aside from that, they get in touch with the students personally and digitally. They keep us informed and up- to- date.

Throughout my 4 years of high school at Nogales, I have seen a gradual change of the entire atmosphere and environment on campus. I came into this school knowing it had a slight bad reputation, but after the first few months, I realized that it was actually really fun! We had a new principal, Mr. Nasouf, and he set the foundation of what my school has become. Over the years, our administration has incorporated a friendly and supportive environment amongst the students by getting to know everyone personally and greeting them everyday. They are always looking for new ways to keep students involved academically or athletically and develop strong school spirit. I have certainly enjoyed attending Nogales High School because I feel welcomed and enlightened every time I am on campus. All of the students are supportive of one another, whether it be about academics, athletics, music, or club events. I definitely would not have wanted to experience high school anywhere else.
I really love Nogales High School! So far, in the three years the at I have been going to Nogales High I have not had a problem. Every year, I enjoy and love my classes. The staff and teachers are always so helpful. From my experience at my previous schools, Nogales High School so far is the best.
