    Nichols provides students academic and athletic growth but more importantly fosters independence and character - the Nichols school community is the most inviting of all area schools - we visited and shadowed all - none can compare to the welcome experience Nichols provides and nurturing it does everyday and with every interaction. The environment is young adult friendly and comfortable, but maintains very high standards and instills accountability and challenges everyone from the start - without question the program prepares our young adult sons and daughters for life and college! Can't say enough -

    I am currently a junior at Nichols School and attending Nichols has probably been the best choice I have made in my life so far. The academics are very high and the work load is challenging but it overall significantly helps students manage their time better. The sports are great at Nichols and the competitiveness you receive from students is wonderful. The teachers here are just as wonderful as the students and always want the students to do better everyday. The teachers always want to help students and support them. I am so excited to become a senior next year and finally graduate! This school has given me so many new opportunities and has helped me in so many different ways!
    My experience at Nichols school has been overall pleasant. The transition into my freshman year was a bit rocky due to not knowing how to apply myself properly. Nichols taught me that if I put in the effort, I will succeed. The teachers are always willing to help and will go out of their way to make time to help tutor you. At any other high school, many teachers would not make this effort to have one-on-one time with their students, but teachers at Nichols make this their top priority. In addition to making time for their students, Nichols teachers also prioritize making their classes engaging. Most classes have lots of hands on work and group projects. I can’t say enough good things about this school but honestly the care that the teachers have for the students make the tuition worth it.
