    I went to Nissitissit Middle School for 4 years and had a great experience. Teachers care about the students and the new principal is tough but she is very caring towards the school. I'm proud to say that Nissitissit is a great school for students. There's no bullying and if it happends it is dealt with very seriously and i rate this school with a 10.

    Nissitissit offers a wonderful warm safe caring educational environment with dedicated teachers and staff. Attention is given to every possible detail and students and staff are treated with the utmost care and consideration by its administrators. This school should be a model for other schools - as it excels at celebrating students and their contributions gifts and talents in a way that is non-threatening to other students and encourages all to strive to be the best they can be.
