Horrible the principal is a bully at most.
This school is very dirty. Their bathroom are almost always out of toilet paper making my girls have to use napkins instead. My kids always seem to have substitute teachers. Their back packs and jackets have to be left outside on the floor up against the wall because the class rooms do not have hooks or cubbies. The teachers seem to be rude, inpatient and short tempered. I have personally heard teachers yelling at their students through the doors while waiting for my kids. Today my daughter came home hungry and told me that the lunch lady sneezed on her lunch apologized for it but didn't give her a new one so she threw it out!!!! This place needs new staff all around ,permanent teachers and to be remodeled. I can go on and on about more things that are wrong with this school but this is enough to realize this school should be closed.
It is very disheartening to see these children at this school. Most of the kids are low income and minority. With poverty comes its own set of problems...this I understand. What I don't understand is the lack of nurturing and compassion that is offered to these already fragile children. The manner in which the children are spoken too. I personally witnessed a 1st grade teacher rolling her eyes at a child, speaking harshly and even yelling for the class to be quiet. Would NOT recommend this place for any child!
I love this school. Both of my kids go to Nicholas and have always had great teachers. The student population is diverse. The students and staff are respectful of each other. Nicholas does a good job redirecting students and rewarding students who are doing well. The Principal is friendly, helpful and keeps the campus safe. She really connects with students.
