    This school was top of its game two/three years ago w/ the previous principal but now these teacher ain't teaching nothing I'm very disappointed! my daughter came to this school two years ago a grade ahead I see my child becoming a average student and that is unacceptable! They give no attention to the children who are on task to keep them above level my child Is not challenged and will be out of there at end of this school year!

    I am the Community School liaison at Nichsolon. It is a wonderful school with very devoted teachers. The teachers go out of their way to engage the students with exciting curriculuims and projects. There are many parents who are very involved withe the school. Students are respectful to teachers and other staff. A wonderful environment! -

    Nicholson is a promising Elementary school which tackles the needs and interests of their students as well as their parents. I have been a volunteer for almost 2-1/2 years. I am very proud of our school and it's many present and future accomplishments.
