    I graduated from Nederland HS and also came back to work for the district for several years. The education provided to me from this district allows me to work in the field of my choice and provide for my family. Overall I had a good base to move on to college and graduate.

    Highland Park is an amazing school that puts children's learning above everything else! My daughter loves going to school each day and as a parent that is very comforting!

    If you are not a football star you are dirt beneath this school's feet. Even for the middle schools. The teachers easily play favoritism and give special privileges to the football players and not to the regular students. The education is decently well organized but with only being a baseball player I did not get the treatment football players did. Many cliches and snobby kids. When I graduate my kids will NEVER go to Nederland.

    Nederland High School has a wonderful quality of academic programs. The school's participation in music arts sports and many other extracurricular activities is wonderful. The Nederland Bulldogs football team makes the student body have a lot of school spirit. Parent's involvement in the school district is very high. I think Nederland Independent school district is a great place to send your child!

    I think that the Nederland High School academic and athletic programs are both excellent. My sister and I both go there and we absolutely love it. I find that the teaching staff is also great they teach things through and make sure that ever student learns what they are teaching.
