2014-2015 TEA School Report Card



NSSH Named No Place for Hate School for the 2015-2016

The No Place for Hate® initiative provides educators and students with the resources to ensure that anti-bias and diversity education are an integral part of the school curriculum.  No Place for Hate® also helps to create and sustain inclusive school environments where all students feel valued and have the opportunity to succeed by promoting respect for individual difference while challenging bigotry and prejudice.


Congratulations to OUR Principal!


Dr. Joe Coleman has been named as a 2015 Finalist for H-E-B's Excellence in Education Award. Dr. Coleman attributes this accolade to the hard work of his students and staff. "You know, this came as a surprise to me. I definitely could not have been in consideration for this award if it were not for my teachers and the wonderful things they do for our kids. I am truly honored!" Although he is very modest, it should be noted that Dr. Coleman has received recognition from H-E-B in his previous tenures as principal (2007: San Angelo Central High School, 2010: Fort Bend Willowridge High School).

D-Verse Dominates the Competition

Our NSSHS D-Verse Dance Crew won Grand National Champions at the HTE Dance Nationals Competition this past weekend in San Antonio - this is their third time winning this title (2013, 2014, and 2016)!!! They won the prestigious Super Sweepstakes award which is scoring a 95 or above on all three of their performances, and they won a presentation award, a technique award, a precision award, and an entertainment award. The Novelty routine won 1st place overall in the boys crew division.

Girls Golf Takes 3rd in the District

District 21-6A held its boys and girls golf tournament at Beaumont Country Club Tuesday (4/5) and Wednesday (4/6) of this week. On the boy's side, Junior Josue Trevino posted a personal best varsity tournament round of 91 on the second day to lead the boys team against tough district competition. The boy's team finished 7th of the 10 teams participating.

The girls, led by Seniors Selena Buenrostro and Amber Hill, took home 3rd place medals, which is a first in recent Lady Mustang Golf history. Selena scored a personal best of 44 on the final 9 holes of her career. Sophomore Grace Lam also had a strong showing to help the girl's overall score.
