My experience is great at Nicolet High School. Most teachers genuinely care about you and are willing to help, even if you don't ask for it. The curriculum is very strong in most departments. English is fantastic and Nicolet graduates are known for their great writing skills among colleges. Although, the math department seems to struggle. The curriculum has been changed to CPM which drastically affected each classes' grades. Many AP classes are offered and multiple career education classes as well; from culinary arts, to architectural design.This school is very organized and twice a month, teachers gather to discuss how to further improve the school. The school is very well put together and has a very welcoming community. The students are also very accepting and I am honored to attend that school for 4 years.

It's a very diverse school which is a plus because there is a place for everyone. There are also a lot of sports and clubs to become a part of and most work around your schedules. are also a major plus because during resource periods, they are readily available. The cons are the safety, Nicolet has a history or drugs and it's led to random locker checks, another is the principles are very negative. Within the past 4 years of being here we've gone through 4 assistant principles and during my last 2 years, the administration has been appalling. Academic wise the school is great but the community and safety is a concern.
Highly academic school, many extra curricular activities. Many resources to help prepare students for college. I enjoyed my time in the arts, mainly theatre, orchestra, and choir. I also enrolled in many AP classes and was able to get college credit for them. Many wonderful teachers. Students from Nicolet often compete in local and national events (science fairs, debate tournaments, sporting events, etc.)
