Nickerson High School is a well established high school in a small town setting. The teachers are very kind and helpful, along with the administration. However they do not have many options as far as honors classes or advanced placement classes.

I have spent my entire high school career here at Nickerson High School. I loved the environment since my freshman year. Having small classes was a huge benefit for me personally because I felt more comfortable asking questions and since the teachers knew me personally I felt obligated to do a better job on all of my assignments. Even now in my senior year I feel as though I'm expected to do well on everything, because they know I'm capable, and that pushes me to do so. I'm thankful for it. The only thing o would have liked to change in my fours years here, is the lunch. The menu has gotten better over the years but the serving sizes have not. Other than that, I'm grateful for the time I've spent at NHS and excited to become an alumni.
It is a very small high school, there is approximately 80 students in my class. The teachers are very close to their students and want the best for them. Everyone in the school, students, staff members and teachers are very nice and always excepting of each other.
