    Overall Experience: During my time here at NQHS I enjoyed my days at school rather than not wanting to come to school. There are some teachers here that aren't the best but most of the staff here is extremely friendly and helpful. Rallies were the best because of the performances we had. My favorite experience is joining the school's AFJROTC program, gave me a whole lot of experiences that I won't forget. Although lunches aren't the best here, homemade lunches are the solution.
