I really don't like this school. There are way too many students in the classes and if you fall behind you have to fail before they will consider moving you out the class "if there is room in another" or you just get an "F". The STAR football players pass all their classes no matter what and they get ...  Read more

EXCELLENT leadership from both past and present Principals. Great office staff. Very good teachers. AWESOME football team, sports, theater and music. Despite many cutbacks, this school is thriving.

Nordhoff High School is a wonderful school. My daughter thoroughly enjoys going there. It has a wonderful music department and theater department. They filmed the movie "Easy A" there. Nordhoff High School rocks!

To summarize this school in a few words I would have to say 'lack of care'. This is clearly seen in the poorly thought out schedules and times.

In my point of view, I took my child out of this high school after her freshman year. The teachers are careless and only care about the pay check.

I go to nordhoff and I really dont like it. There is a weak selection of electives. School starts way too early, I dont see how we are supposed to focus at 7.40 In the morning, school should defionatly start later, then less people would be tardy and people would find it easier to pay attention and ...  Read more

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.
