Nichols is a great school. I have had experiences with many of the teachers in the school, and they all care about the students. One teacher called it her "ministry". There is a new PACSA board that is working to fulfill the needs of students and parents. The principal is community driven and often goes door-to-door to encourage parents to get involved with their student's education. An even stronger parent presence is what this school needs to be a shining star within DPS. Good school.

I would give this school 5 stars except for the Principle. She means well, but is very inexperienced. She wants to skirt around the issues or problems rather than just taking them head on and fixing them. The teaching staff is phenomenal. Don't let the DPS "brand" fool you. The teachers are seasonal professionals that instill respect, responsibility and make their students work. There is nothing wrong with that, as well as being caring and loving towards these children. Nichols may have it's faults, inexperienced and unappreciative leadership (the principle and administrative staff), but if you really want the best for your child, this is the right school.

My son currently goes to Nichols and I think it's a good school. He has now had two different principals and I found them both dedicated professionals. I can't speak for all the teachers there, but his have been great. I do agree that should have more after school programs, but for the most part I like NIchols.

For the school is small as far as a bigger gym, lunch and an area for performances. I went to a school that went from k-8 and it was just a little bigger. Some teachers are excellent and there are others that need to retire. The principal is doing the best she can do. The city needs to help all of these DPS schools that are still open. They need money, this school has no good activities. What happen to music, my daughters enjoyed the choir after school and then the school stopped it. This school needs an upgrade added space for the additional students that are being pushed in to these schools.
