Open Quote Very poor. Oh my, staff is rude. No value in parent relationships. And if you work for a living and can't volunteer for every event then don't expect any courteous interactions for you or your child during their school day. Such a bad experience that I pulled my kids out to homeschool them..And boy they are learning so much more, having more academic success, not to mention they are much much happier NOT being enrolled at Nicholson elementary school!!

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
