Welcome to the home of the Apaches. We are a Performing Plus
School in the Nogales Unified School District in southern Arizona, just a
stone’s throw from the Mexico border. Serving nearly 2,000 students, we have
great honor in the history of our school, and it shows in all that we do. Our
students are active and involved, and our teachers go out of their way to
ensure every student’s success. Please spend some time getting to know our
school, and let us show you our Apache pride!
We are proud of our school, our students, our Performing Plus
status, and our current academic results and success. Academic achievement
at Nogales High School is EXPECTED. All students will be held accountable for
their academic progress and individual student behavior. Rules and procedures
matter, and they will be followed and respected.
It is your responsibility as NHS students to set goals, follow
through with individual responsibilities, and do your very best every day as
Apaches. Good character, a positive attitude, and individual self respect
starts with you. Make the best of what NHS has to offer.
“Ability may get you to the top, but it takes character to stay
there.” - Coach John Wooden
proud to be an APACHE!
Welcome back to Nogales High School! You should be very proud to call yourselves
“Apaches”! If you are beginning your
high school career as a freshman, you have great things in store for the next
four years of your lives.
I am Mr. Cesar Miranda, Principal of
Nogales High School. My first year as
principal was filled with great student success stories related to academics
and athletics. I look forward to many
more this upcoming school year.
We here at NHS are looking forward to
the 2016-2017 school year. It is an
honor and a privilege to be a student at Nogales High School. With that said, it is up to you to get the
job done every day in the classroom.
The faculty and staff have made a commitment to raise student achievement
for ALL students. We need a commitment
from you as well in order to achieve great things during your years at
NHS. The years will fly by, so be sure
to get involved as much as possible.
Join a sport or a club, attend plays and band concerts, run for student
council or volunteer your time to a local organization. This is the time in your life to discover who
you are and what you are naturally good at.
Take advantage of all that NHS has to offer and also remember to thank
your parents/legal guardians for all of their sacrifices to make sure you are
well taken care of.
Be sure to set personal and academic
goals for yourself at the start of every year.
This will give you the purpose and vision that you will need to
succeed. Your over-all goal should be to
graduate and be college and career ready after high school. Don’t allow obstacles to get in your way and
prevent you from accomplishing your dreams.
You are the only one who can control your destiny!
We welcome you and wish you another
successful school year full of academic success! Be safe and enjoy the remainder of your
