The PSAT will be given on the 19th of October. The cost of the PSAT is $25.00, and all students planning to attend college and who are enrolled in Integrated Math II or higher level math course should take this test. For juniors, it is the only chance to qualify to become a National Merit Scholar.

The teachers, staff and administration at Nordhoff, are very proud to serve you and your children, our students, on their last and final educational step here in the Ojai Unified School District. 

We believe that the phrase "citizen-student-athletes/artists" best describes our Rangers, the order of which reflects our relative commitment to those facets of our students’ lives. Additionally, we believe Nordhoff High School is a place that can be best described in four words: Scholarship, Community, Opportunity and Tradition. We want our Rangers to exhibit the hallmark traits of scholarship, and so we challenge them to excel as the thoughtful, skilled, articulate, knowledgeable, creative problem-solvers we believe they can be. And, we always challenge our students to be more than merely attendees of Nordhoff High School, but rather to become a member of the community at Nordhoff by participating beyond the classroom in the form of clubs, athletics, arts and leadership, as we believe the core of the life of this school is in community.

Go Rangers!  -  Dr. Greg Bayless, Principal
