There’s many things good about NCHS but there’s many things that could be changed also. There’s not much diversity here at all and the teachers aren’t very interactive. But the staff overall is nice, we are encouraged to do well and everyone’s a family. That’s why I gave it such a good rating.

I love Nicholas County Schools, it's a small town so it only has one school, however we don't have much money to improve the school. The teachers and other staff are all like family and I wouldn't have made it to college without their support.
I liked all of the people in my school. My teachers were all very nice to me! The school always had fun activities to do!
