I absolute love Nicholas County High School. One of the things I love about it most is how our class sizes are small. This allows our educators to provide more one on one attention to those that need it. I also like how “everybody knows everybody.” You’re not just a number at Nicholas County High School...you’re more like family!

I loved everything bout nicholas county, I honestly wouldn’t change anything about it. I had moved there in 8th grade and It was the best decision I had ever made!
It’s a good school when it comes to one on one. The teachers really get to know the students and care for them anyway they can. You really learn a lot. The classes are very small so it’s easy to stay focused and on task. The teacher are willing to help you out when you need it. They offer tutoring every week in the morning and afternoon.
