I look back fondly on my high school memories and I know it is because I attended this school. The teachers are talented and dedicated to their students, and there is plenty opportunity to find your niche, or create one if need be. Its downfall resides in its administration's tendency to racial profile, subconsciously inflicting discipline towards its students of color at disproportionately high levels while simultaneously deterring students of color from enrolling in the advanced classes that actually prepare them for college. Many teachers will confirm that this is a problem, but not enough realize this for anything to change. Overall I enjoyed my time there, but my only wish was that more minorities could have had the same luxury.

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.
Nicolet is a very diverse high school with a generally well qualified and engaging teaching staff. There is plenty of support and potential connections for students who are motivated to seek them out. It leaves determined students with a great experience, exposing them to many different ways of life. That said, though claiming to try, it's yet to find a good way to handle the unmotivated students and like most public schools, does little to accommodate kids with attention problems.
