Nicholas County Schools Reviews

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.

What I like about Nicholas County Schools is that I feel safe, and protected by my teachers. I have gotten an excellent education throughout my years of school. My teachers enjoy their job and they are good at what they do. What I would like to see change is the appreciation to the teachers who devote their time into teaching us teenagers.
I was homeschooled in Nicholas County! I am so thankful for a wonderful education from my friends and family.
