I have lived in banning all my life and let's just say the staff always cares for you. It is great knowing that they will help me and support me. I can even call some of them family from the way they treat me. The students at this school are amazing, if you just transferred you can make new friends right away. They have many extracurricular activities that you will just love like Eco, Drama, Reader r Leaders, Astronomy, Christian Crossover, Bilingual, Future Leaders, and many more there is a club for all people it seems. Even though are test grades aren't the highest we try are best to encourage all and have fun. :)

I love nicolet middle school. This school had great involvement with the students. I would never want to change what school i went to.

I am not at all liking that the student gets full credit for turning in his/her homework, but there are many spelling errors, grammar, etc on their work. I want to know that my child is getting shown how to correct everyday grammar and spelling, math etc mistakes so they do not become a creature of 'bad habits' A concerned parent.

As the 2005-2006 President of the School-Site Counsel for Nicolet Middle School, I was disappointed with the level of parent involvement last year. This wasn't entirely the fault of the parents however, as there were major communication problems between the school and the parents. Our new principal, Matt Valdivia seems to be energetic and sincere in his efforts to want to make Nicolet Middle School a better place to learn. He has begun to make some serious changes. So far, these appear to be very positive changes for the students, for the school, and for our community as a whole. This is going to be an exciting school year. I'm looking forward to working with Mr Valdivia and his staff. I urge all parents to get involved in their childs' education. Your child will show as much interest in his schooling as you do. Please get involved!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
