    "The school needs to stop with the ridiculous collar shirt dress code; it's not a private school! It's a PUBLIC SCHOOL. The collar shirt dress code, does not put a stop to inappropriate attires of some girls. I see short dresses, crop tops, low cut tees on girls! WITHOUT COLLARS, but they still go a whole day without being put in "SAC". But honestly the whole dress code thing does not help improve grades, so why in force it to the school. Also, the staff who are "in charge" (I put quotation marks, because like I said I see many out of dress code students) need to be more focus on the outside of the school, during working school hours, because many students skip and go to LoneStar or outside in the forest; by the staff keeping the students in class instead of skipping to the outside, grades will most likeky improve."

    "The school offers a lot of dual credit and there is a diverse campus of great teachers who work diligently, creatively, and compassionately at what they do. Students that take advantage of what is offered will go far in college and their career choices."

    "I recently graduated from Nimitz High School as part of the Class of 2013. As a former student I have to say that the school shouldn't be blamed for its bad reputation. Though many parents might not want to here it, the fault lies with them and their out of control children. I was at the top of my class and had many of the faculty members help me through high school. I actually tried to do well and as a result, I start college at UT Austin in the fall. I can honestly say that without the encouragement from the teachers and counselors at Nimitz High School, I never would've made it through school."

    "Nimitz HS has some good athletes and some good students with accredited teachers who are really working hard to do their jobs. Often, however, with the high special ed population and/or support facilitated there is a lot of paper work. The jaded students that work to help their family and the esl students who don't speak english well, cannot often add much to the classroom. Alot of students are transit and move from school to school or decide to start working. The teachers have the heart, but the students of this generation (the spoiled ones) are missing the discipline to succeed due to their values being in the wrong place. And as a teacher who does metal-detector duty, calls out dress-code every day (id badges too), and reprimands for foul language...I can be jaded especially when I set up labs that students don't have the respect to try and do. SO, if you are a good student...please pray for our school...just don't attend if you don't have to."

    "Nimitz is HORRIBLE! Every day after breakfast there is trash everywhere. The teachers are horrible and hardly ever teach. The students dress like prostitutes and the administration say absolutely nothing at all. They don t care what you do especially if your parents come up to the school and get ghetto. There is a fight almost every day and it is just atrocious! I live in the Woodcreek neighborhood next to the school and from that you would think the school would be a nice school seeing as how the neighborhood is so nice and quiet a good suburban area then you go to the school and realize that it is the exact opposite. They have over 100 buses at the school because they bring students from all over and dump them at one school. I ve been told that Nimitz was amazing at one time until 2009 when it went downhill and unfortunately I am a part of that horrible class of 2013. A word of advice: DO NOT send your children there. Do not even take a second look at Aldine ISD because it will turn your sweet children into MONSTERS! It s sad but true. Find a new school, because the administration is just as bad if not worse than the students. I put one star but it should be none."
