I would give it a 4 out of 5 stars. The first reason is the one that explains why it is 4 stars and not higher. This is because our school's math department is very weak, so if you like math (like me) and want to properly learn it, then maybe look more into this school and others before deciding. Especially since our school still has things to fix, adapt and change.The second reason explains why it is not any lower than 4 stars. This is because frankly I don't plan on leaving this school for any other one (even for granada hills) because I enjoy being with my classmates and teachers. I wanted to leave so badly at first, but then I started paying attention to my surroundings and noticed that I liked it here and that everyone was trying their hardest to get me to socialize with others and not be alone. Though some teachers and students make me want to bang my head on a table till I bleed, the majority are very kind. Also, the school isn't like others (I assume), because they don't make you believe that college is your only option. This could have been just my class year, or my schedule, or the fact that the people I knew were mostly honors students, so it depends on your perspective. It might have just been me, but I consider myself lucky right now (I am still a freshman, but I hope to write another review when I finish 10th grade and see how much has changed). I hope this review was looked upon as helpful and not as a biased one.
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.
