Great school if you have an honors student. Otherwise school is deeply segregated by academic performance and race. No sense of community, sports are a joke, kids prey on each other. Average students are taught by burned out faculty with health and personal problems. Pulled our child out and won't send the rest.

Nicolet is a wonderful school for kids of any economic class, intellectual level, athletic ability, or any other characteristic deemed both good or bad. Students who struggle within the classroom catch up to their peers, while students who are above average continue to grow. Nicolet has some of the highest testing score averages in all of the state of Wisconsin, ranking within the top 5 in both Mathematics and Sciences.

Urban Public Schools Come to the Rescue of Black Boys
Public schools across the nation are implementing programs that help keep young black men in school and off the streets. Boosting graduation rates, reducing gang involvement and violence, and providing positive male role models are just a few of the common elements of these programs. Yet, the achievement gap between black boys and other peer groups remains extremely wide.
