    "I went to Niguel hills for middle school and I have wonderful memories here. That's why my kids ended up here as well, and they love it at NHMS. It is a great school, with many wonderful teachers, principle, programs and clubs for the students to join. When transitioning from elementary to middle school there will always be a sort of shock for students and parents, like a bigger environment, and more homework. But once everyone gets in a routine and settled, they will adjust just fine. There tends to be a bit of bullying going on between the 6th graders, probably because they got away with it in elementary. But they have a bully box in the office where you can report anyone who is bullying anonymously. So that helps stop the behavior. Some parents need tips on parenting better, that's not the schools fault. Overall, Niguel Hills middle school is a great school, I wouldn't have my kids go anywhere else."

    "Hello. I am a student at NHMS. Things aren't horrible here. The GATE program is rough is sixth-grade. I mean REALLY tough. I'm talking three to four hours of homework, when the average amount should only be about thirty minutes per class. T he homework amount is awfu, but I feel like I am prepared for college now! I think seventh-grade will be easier though. Dress code sucks, you have to have cap sleeves! The teachers are great, but they have their flaws. They can't be perfect though, and I respect that."

    "My son is completing his second year at NHMS. We have found the teachers to involved and well prepared and the school to be very safe from bullying. I would highly recommend NHMS!"

    "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!"
