School Reviews

5   6/1/2012
Nicholson is a grade center, so only grades 2 and 3 attend this school. It has a great emphasis on health (through the Fuel Up to Play 60 program) and on Character Counts! Kids who earn cards for all six character pillars become Nicholson Knights (the school mascot). They have one section of each grade that is accelerated and enriched to challenge gifted kids.
