The people and administration are great! I have been going to Nicolet High school for 4 years now, but I have move in and out of the state throughout them. But every time I went back to the school, it was easy to get registered and the counselors and staff ere really helpful. The teachers are also great. They helped me with a lot of assignments and projects in order to help me achieve success.

Overall, I would say that Nicolet prepared me very well for college, and I feel confident that I have the knowledge needed to begin pursuing a higher education. Like any school, some teachers had methods that clicked with me more so than others, and I felt that I definitely learned more in those classes. The course requirements are not so strict that you don't have room for elective courses, but I would definitely recommend taking IT and Physical Education during the summer. There are plenty of clubs and activities, but being student run, they lack a definitive structure. Many different sports are offered through the school, but there is a particular emphasis on tennis.
I love how many quality teachers there are. The academics are really great at Nicolet, and really does prepare you for college if you take honors and other higher level classes. Lots of teachers genuinly care about teaching. The school itself is very diverse and has a very multiculteral feel to it. The overall culture of the school is pretty good, but safety could be better. I’ve seen people bring in a ton of illegal things just because there are no metal detectors or bag checks for students everyday, only late students get their bag checked.
