Nicolas Junior High School Reviews
I am not at all impressed with this school. The communication between school and parent is almost non-existant. By the time I find out about a problem it is too late. The teachers are sarcastic and unreasonable. They do not create a positive learning environment or encourage my son. On the contrary, they have made him feel bad about himself, and have punished him unreasonably. Shame on you Nicholas Jr. High.
Nicolas Jr High is an excellent school, the principal cares about the education of their students and like to have meetings with parents to let them know what the school has improved. He worries that students dress appropriately for school attendance. The school has improved a lot since he came to the director.
it is an amazing school, almost perfect, but they are a bit to strict with the dress code
