Excellent school, principal is really everywhere at school, hardworking and very friendly with the students, they respect her, love her and care about the school, they have plenty of extra programs and activities to the kids, also great disposition from the teachers to work on extra class doing tutoring to the student that need it the most!

As a parent who just had their child promote from NNC this year, his past 3 years have been incredible. Not only was my child involved in after-school activities such as Young Interpreters and Kids Care club, he also gained many friends through these programs. I saw him go from a timid child, to a confident, bright young man ready for highschool. The staff at NNC are interactive, and do care for your child, as well as support them. I'm glad for the school, as it help my son be where he is today academically, as well as socially.

I was very apprehensive about sending my child to NNC. I tried to have him transferred but the "best" middle school in the PSUSD is over crowded and the other middle schools have a worse score than NNC. Well, my child has attended NNC two years now and I don't have any complaints. There are plenty of opportunities for him to participate in after activities. Every time there's some kind of assembly during school or in the evening for parents you can see all kinds of groups your child can be part of. I see the ASB kids, and the interpreter club kids happily helping out. I watch the choir, band, cheer, dance and drama, show off their talents. There is the kids care club always set up trying to raise funds for whatever cause is important to them. The principle is always in attendance. There are the sports teams you can join or technology clubs, debate team, ect. They also have the AVID program and JUMP. There are so many opportunities for your child to be involved and to find something to be passionate about. I am very happy with NNC.

It us extremely obvious that a staff meeting was called for teachers to post on this site for March 22,2014, because the reviews are BOGUS to say the least.There are no such thing as An afterschool program for Bullying or ANYTHING ELSE WORTH LEAVING YOUR CHILD FOR! The so called leadership is nonexistant! This school does not have leadership at ALL. It has a principal who needs to retire, so a more youthful, fresh minded,individual who is in touch with todays social issues dealing with our youth, can step in. No disrespect but until that happens thete will be no change.Staff of NNC, stop posting untrue post about your school being something that it is NOT! #CHANGENEEDEDATNNC

There is an awful lot of speculation on the rather inefficiency of Nellie N. Coffman. As a person which has seen it grow and become grander I would like to somewhat destroy the 'comments' which are both irrelevant and incorrect. For starters, its Debate team has excelled to a point of such great improvement. This April it will go to Nationals representing the Desert Valley Debate League as 1st place. As for its staff, they have most certainly PROVEN that they acquire of more educational resources to their students than many schools in the Coachella Valley. As for the Principal, she is probably the BEST leader that Nellie N. Coffman will ever have. Her initiative and involvement within school parameters just completely overachieved the set goals. She first of all doesn't just focus on her duties, but goes beyond that. She helps out with extracurricular activities and students which need of some assistance. That furthermore proves that this school is not that bad. In fact probably one of the best ran schools you will ever find.
