Notus Junior/Senior High School Reviews

I really like that most of our teachers are happy to help you if you need it, and want you to succeed. The staff really care about the students that attend the school. It is also a smaller school so everyone practically knows each other which creates a great atmosphere. We also have a program for students who want to take classes that we don't offer called IDLA. Notus High School also really helps prepare you for college. We offer a lot of dual-credit classes that transfer to any colleges in the U.S., and take our academics seriously. I also really like our FFA program. It is thriving and aids many students involved with the club in planning, preparing, and setting them up for a successful future. Notus is also a small, farming town so FFA is almost fundamental in our school.
We have recruited new teachers and a new counselor since our last ones have retired and that has been an adjustment, but overall our high school is really good.

My overall experience with Notus Schools has been phenomenal. There is a sense of family and togetherness all throughout the school and town and it doesn't take long for new students and families to feel welcome. I have been attending Notus Schools for six years, completely surrounded by students and faculty who genuinely care about my well being and my life not only inside the classroom, but outside as well. The biggest change I would love to see take place throughout Notus High School is the art program being re-added to the school. We have very artistic students in our school and I would love to see them have an art program again, being taught by a teacher who genuinely loves their students. I have been homeschooled, to a private school, and to a charter school, but Notus has provided me with the best experience. I am very thankful for my time in the school system, and I applaud the students, faculty, and community for creating a well-rounded, safe environment.
The clubs that Notus Jr. Sr. High School has from 2015-2016 was: Student Council, Student Body, National Honor Society, Academic Decathlon, High School and Jr. High School Choir, Band (Jr. and Sr. High students), Natural Helpers, Future Hispanic Leaders of America, Business Professional of America, FFA, and Yearbook. The level of commitment all depends on the atmosphere given by the leaders (teacher, president, vice, etc.). The trend seems to be if a student isn't part of the organization, or if a friend isn't then "don't support it". The two most popular clubs that we have are Natural Helpers and Yearbook, however the dedication from the students can be hard at times. All of the teachers are supportive of the clubs, though they can get frustrated, because it makes teaching a certain subject hard. The only after-school activities we have are sports and tutoring.
