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.

Nicolet High School prepares students and their parents for life after high school. From counselors working with each individual step by step to the college and career readiness courses, all questions are answered and the potential anxiety of the future disappears. Though, not every component of a school can be top notch. While it is still strong, the weakest part of Nicolet is their math staff. The day to day goal can sometimes be confusing. Despite small challenges, Nicolet High School is overall a step in the right direction for students who want to be successful.
I had an overall good experience at Nicolet Highschool. Nicolets main goal is to ensure a good education and future for their students. If I were to change something, I would change the strict schedule and given students even more opportunity to learn with who they want to learn with and do things that they enjoy more often throughout their school day. Nicolet is a good school that gives each and every child an opportunity to have a good future.
