Nitro High School Ratings & Reviews

"This school is a very mediocre institution. The administration often seems lost and ignorant as to how to appropriately approach situations. The vice principal once told me that, in regard to the school's performance, ""It doesn't matter what the kids think."" NHS hardly prepares the student for college, and does even less to prepare them for the real world and having a career. Many teachers seem to try harder at being the students friend instead of actually teaching. It is however, what you make of it, and the resources provided by the school can be used by an independent mind to very much succeed."

I attended Nitro High School and I have to say it is definitely one of the best in the region. It offers a variety of AP and honors classes. There are also a large amount of extracurriculars to choose from such as band, show choir, guitar, ROTC, drama club, ski club, and many many more. The teachers are great and all of them are willing to help any student with whatever they need. Nitro is also one of the top technology schools in the county. Every classroom has a smart board and many classes have laptops and iPads for the students to use. The students and teachers are all friendly and welcoming and it isn't hard to make friends, even for new students. Nitro definitely prepared me for college, I kept a 4.5 gpa and my grades continued to remain high through university.

One of the best schools in WV! The staff is wonderful and willing to work with students. They offer a lab in the morning where you can go ask for help with anything or makeup work. The extracurricular activities are second to none, there are tons of sports and if you are an arts lover Nitro offers award winning programs such band, show choir, show choir band, jazz band, art class, and a drama club. Nitro also has one of the best JROTC programs in the nation recieving no infractions on their inspection in 2010 placing them in the top 3% of all the 900 AFJROTC programs in the world. I believe Nitro has prepared me for life beyond high school and is there for its students.
