    "Niguel Hills is great! I am a student and I welcome the home work. The complainers should instead look at the amount of time students spend with TV, Games and Smart Phones and then reconsider their priorities. I also noticed complaints about homework by a GATE student, which contained numerous spelling and grammatical errors. Maybe "more" homework is the answer? Life is all about timing and priorities."

    "Niguel Hills, PLEASE keep inforcing the Dress Code. I frequently pick up my child from school and take notice to the obvious. This is Middle School. Who dresses these kids. Hoodies and sun glasses between classes and lunch? AND, where do they get all those Clown clothes? Not sure if I am at the curcus or a zoo!"

    "From a student~ I will be entering eighth grade after this summer, and I really won't mind getting back! Niguel is a top notch school with teachers who care. From what I've seen here at the school, a majority of the one-star comments and COMPLETE exaggerations! Homework levels are manageable, unless, or course, you aren't diligent and serious (even if you're in the advanced/GATE like me!) Physical fights and rare, though I can't say the same for verbal bullying, being a victim myself. Rules are fair, but it may not seem that way to parents will children who are juvenile delinquents (the same ones guilty of verbal abuse). Teachers, for the most part, are care deeply for each of their students, helping them through difficulties with work. The only qualm I have is the large class sizes, detracting from the overall learning experience because teachers must do less individual help. What can you do though, with the U.S. and it's budget cuts."

    "My child will be in 8th grade this year at NHMS. Having spent 2 years at this school, we have had our ups and downs. 6th grade was outrageous, the amount of homework was unreasonable. My child is an A student and it took him 3-4 hours a night just to get through the homework and that did not include studying for tests. There was a definite shift in 7th grade and maybe it was the new round of teachers, but the amount of homework was much less and we had a very enjoyable year. Bullying should not happen ever but regrettably it exists everywhere. We had one incident and the teachers handled it quickly and that was the end of it. As far as the dress code is concerned, it is not onerous or unusual. I have a son and he is not permitted to dress like a thug, the girls are to dress conservatively no tube tops or short shorts. This is a place for learning not a runway, rave or a costume party. The school is crowded. 40 kids to a class and the teachers spend time doing crowd control and teaching time is reduced. At home help with homework will be required."

    "My child will now be entering 8th grade.Their whole school system is a mess.everything is so outdated nothing has been renovated since I had attended school their.very old technology as well.yet they are always having fundraisers!?teachers obisouly don't care about the learning quality.the staff is very rude.teachers are always piling on excessive amounts of homework.I'm not naming names but a teacher here is forgetful and doesn't write homework assignments on the board or doesn't make them clear to the students and the next day they come back with half the assignment not knowing their was more .they then get blamed for her forgetfulness.there is lots or physical and verbal bullying my child has been a victim and they don't do anything .my child has all so been bullied by staff. Dress code is rediculous.the rules are ridiculous as well.this school has been a horrible experience for my child"
