I graduated from Nokomis in 1981, Spent my last year in Night school, Most of the teachers there were great. I had one exceptional teacher, God rest his soul, Mr Savage spent alot of time helping me with things I didnt understand, Im now a manager in Florida, And alot of what he taught me I use on a daily basis.

A. Academic Programs, average at best. Teachers only care about a pay check and a liberal agenda. B. Sports, Art, Music and Sports programs above average. World class music program. C. Academic and Athletic awards. No comment yet. D. Facilities. POOR, DUMPY, OLD!!! A can of paint goes a long way! The place just plain smells! E. Parent involvement falls on Def ears with the staff. If you are not below the poverty line, gay, or a minority, you will not get help here. Not stirring up trouble, just fact!
