Nicholas County High School is a very good school. The academics are great, the atmosphere inside and outside of school is great and parents are heavily involved with activities. The administration and teachers also care about our safety as students both in school and outside of school such as a football game or any sport related event.

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.
One of the best schools with safety. Bullying is at a all time low . All new faciltys . All new playgrounds . Amazing human resource center . Fully free lunches to all students . Amazing for family's . Amazing new programs for the kids
