Lunch isn’t so great, not very diverse, and a lot of bullying.

All of the teachers are really nice and serious about their jobs. The kids there are nice and I love how it's a smaller school

I am a long time parent at this school and will have had 4 students graduate as of 2017. We had our first two attend Granada Hills thinking "wow, what opportunities at a huge school" and we quickly realized that this was a school that only cared about test scores, not kids. Too much competition for sports and academics if you are planning to get into a good school, however at NAHS you can shine and be in many teams and leadership and have a VERY high class standing. Imagine how that looks on your application. Colleges don't care where you went to high school they care abt. GPA and extra-curricular activities. My kids have taken AP's and honors classes and have done very well.They are in the drama productions which are wonderful too.They have also been on sports teams that do well in their division. I also like the fact they are on the CSUN campus as that allows them to utilize the library and see amazing productions at CSUN by just walking over. This is by no means a perfect campus, but as a comparison to Granada and the lack there I feel that this is the better choice. I know the teachers and feel they are good. I also like the non-bulling atmosphere, the kids seem nice.

This is my daughters second year at this school and I aske her if she wants to move to a bigger school, 'noooo' she replied. If your child is an honor student in middle school, then he has what it takes to take AP or honor classes in high school. Because NAHS is a small school, the students can take AP until 10th grade but can take honors classes in 9th. Sometimes us parents do not take the time and check or ask what a school offers and also it's up to the student to perform as he should.
