Welcome to Nogales High School

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


Be proud to be an APACHE!



Dear Apaches,

Welcome back to Nogales High School!  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.  If you are a returning student, continue to work hard in preparation for life after high school because it is just around the corner.

I am Mr. Cesar Miranda, Principal of Nogales High School.  My first two years as principal have been 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 2017-2018 school year.  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.  This year was filled with academic growth in the areas of AzMERIT, AIMs Science and student enrollment along with several other aspects of Nogales High School.  The pride we place into the things we do is what separates us from all other high schools in Southern Arizona. 

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 summer and be ready to work come August 9th.
