From a student~ I will be entering eighth grade after this summer, and I really won't mind getting back! Niguel is a top notch school with teachers who care. From what I've seen here at the school, a majority of the one-star comments and COMPLETE exaggerations! Homework levels are manageable, unless, ...  Read more

My child will be in 8th grade this year at NHMS. Having spent 2 years at this school, we have had our ups and downs. 6th grade was outrageous, the amount of homework was unreasonable. My child is an A student and it took him 3-4 hours a night just to get through the homework and that did not include ...  Read more

My 1st review of NHMS was so raw and real that it was rejected for public posting. My boys' experiences @ NH were no OC beach walks. From staff to students there is constant pressure, bullying (yes, from staff!), physical fights amongst students, and, if yours finally wins against the bully, the once ...  Read more

My daughter is going into 8th grade on September 8, 2009 and she loves the school. The teachers are nice and she has been getting wonderful grades since she has been going there.

I have learned an amazing deal from school. The academics are so well-developed and I just feel, for the lack of a better term, better than those who go to other schools. Sure, my work load is high, maybe a little too high, but I get it done and it's good for me in the long run. The Gifted and Talented ...  Read more

The homework is a little too excessive, and some teachers just don't seem to care about the students' learning quality. Overall, however, the GATE program is good and we students seem to succeed on tests despite the careless teachers.

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.

The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
