    "My 1st review of NHMS was so raw and real that it was rejected for public posting. My boys' experiences @ NH were no OC beach walks. From staff to students there is constant pressure, bullying (yes, from staff!), physical fights amongst students, and, if yours finally wins against the bully, the once underdog gets suspended for standing up for himself! Endless hours of homework. Buildings are overcrowded and older than we parents are and NOT updated in any way shape or form, yet, there are constant fundraisers...hmmm?! It's OC, so, no school bus system, only public trans. No matter the amt of classroom work your child does, the test scores are what determine your childs overall grade. Hv an A one day, fail 1 test and HELLO! C the next. We had to put our boys in Tae Kwon Do and Jiu Jitsu. Once the school yr was over, one of our boys graduated to Dana Hills HS (Great School) the other we sent to Santiago Charter School in Orange to AVOIDthis nightmare again."

    "I agree with the most recent comments. Dress code is pretty ridicules and inconsistent. as are most rules in this school. I don't see that it is too much homework but more that there is no accountability for HW and the teachers really don't seem to care at all about each student. It is overcrowded as well. I have an 8th grader and a 9th grader who both spent three years here. They did not have any issues socially but I do know that other kids have. The office staff often seem to be under a great deal of stress so I think that is where the rudeness comes from. Overall I am sorry I choose this school and hope my kids will do better in another school district for their high school education."

    "Way to much homework!!! Most teachers don't care about the kids learning!Too much bullying that goes on and nothing is done about it! The teachers cram way to much homework in at the last minute and have lots of hard tests! Dress Code has been a major issue and nothing has been done about it!!! Now with two weeks remaining in the school year they decide to hand out punishment for Dress Code. The front office is very mean and rude to children and parents!This has not been a good experience!!!!"
