NJHS just looks awful. The parking lot is in desperate need of repaving. There is grass growing up threw it. There is garbage all in the grass which by the way needs to be mowed. There is garbage in the parking lot as well as stuck in the light posts that are broke. The gym is so hot in there it's ridiculous. We were at a volleyball game last night & it was so very hot. And while we are on that subject why does it cost $5 to get into a volleyball game? That's crazy. They even charged $5 for little kids ( 6 year olds). And that arch over the entry way is just plain stupid! Looks like you are going into a theme park. And "Gateway to opportunity" oh please!!! They definiety need to get a new principal in there too. You can tell that he doesn't want to be at that school. He has his favorites & if you're not 1 of them then you might as well get ready to get picked on & singled out for every little thing.

Are you there everyday? Do you know exactly what NJHS is like or are you just trying to slander the school like so many others have done all summer? The arch was donated to the school by the guy who owns the Horizons station. Bet you didn't know that did you? As far as Coach Houston, I see him trying to get to know EVERY kid EVERY day, regardless. He does not have favorites. He does the best he can for ALL the kids. He has ALL the kid's interests at heart. He puts in mega hours to keep that school in high standards. NJHS was approved for continuing accreditation this past year, made Adequate Yearly Progess (AYP) this past year, installed new computer labs in the science department, ensured that Spanish would continue to be taught by an actual teacher (as opposed to a computer) by replacing Mrs. Butler who retired last year, continues to improve academics by having Mrs. Pam Vaughn on staff as a graduation/reading coach. All the reading scores continue to improve on the Alabama High School Graduation Exam as well as the scores in Science, Math and Language Arts. As far as the gym, there is a new gym in the plans for 2014 that will be air-conditioned. NJHS is growing and will continue to grow and excel. The vast majority of the stuff you hear in the community about NJHS is total slander and rumor, no truth to it at all. Coach Houston has said it to us before and told all the students on the first day of school in the school-wide assembly, that if you want to know how NJHS is performing academically you are more than welcome to come see him and he will show you the numbers that do not lie. Yes, kids do things that kids shouldn't do. That is at any school you go to. It does not mean the school is bad but that the parents haven't done their job in instilling values and good judgement skills into their children. But if you want to see a truly bad school, go to Birmingham City Schools or any other innercity school infested with gangs and violence and drugs. I promise you you will be grateful to have a school like NJHS. Any questions?????

Might want to attended a school board meeting sometime njhs has no work not even repairs on the 5 year plan that harding put in place Thursday. So no gym for nj no time soon all other schools in the county has 2 or 3 gyms. Good luck the board does what they want and no one goes to the meetings to even check up on them to see what going on.

If they went and fixed it, the same poster would drive down a road the next day and complain about pot holes, but they don't want their taxes to go up. Hell they probably don't even pay taxes. But they look in disgust at it but then they will say, "The county spends too much of our tax money!" I've seen this attitude before.

If you don't like it, go do something about it. If you think NJHS is bad, you have not been too far in this state.

Sam Houston is the problm. The only reason they past the accreditation is because they froze last years test scores. Get the facts straight. I vote get rid of Sam and work my way down...

Inbred....not inbread. Honestly, half of the student body?! Exactly what is your problem with "mixed" people? I really hope you aren't NJHS alumni because I would really be embarrassed! Truth is,you probably never finished school & blame everyone but yourself for the outcome.

Most of the gossip & down grading of the school is coming from people that don't want to be there. You can't have pride & discipline in a school if you don't have it at home! I hate to hear people blame others for their failures. If you fail, it's most likely your attitude that hurt you & pride that wouldn't allow you to accept it.

Pride & attitude have everything to do with ignorance & stupidity. A bad "attitude" will cause a person to verbalize their "ignorance" on a public forum. A person should have enough "pride" not to show their "stupidity."
