Nicholas County Schools Reviews

I think Nicholas County High School along with all high schools should require everyone to take a class upon graduation that deals with problems that we will have to face in the real world. Such as buying/renting a home, vehicle, healthcare, cooking, how to find a job, taxes, credit, etc. These are all vital things that we need to learn in life and thank God that I have a family that can help me after high school with these issues, but imagine the kids that don't.

Nicholas County schools suffer from bad facilities and lack of supplies. Although the teachers take their time to create personal relationships with the students, they let those friendships prevent them from actually teaching the material they need to be successful in life. Students are not introduced to options for after high school until their senior year and then they are not given enough information.
It is a very welcoming school with the kindest staff! They do their best to ensure you succeed in your endeavors.
