East Nicolaus High School 5

East Nicoluas and the staff are exceptional with the students. The new Principle has been amazing and knows each and every student. I have been pleased with the 3 years my son has attended. The small class sizes and small town feel has empowered my son through the years. Academically, East Nicolaus has proven high scores for years and shall continue. The teaching staff may have changed over the last few years but that happens in a small community that may not have a large school budget. Some teachers intend to use the smaller schools as stepping stones to their careers; there is no getting around that. Yet, There are many long timers at this school who make East Nicolaus strong, who believe in their students and all of their accomplishments. Good Job East Nicolaus!

This is a great school if you have an average or below student. The school has had a high staff/teacher turn over the last couple of years. I'm not sure if that's due to the new principal, but as a parent, it's concerning. The turnover feels constant. Several teachers hired to replace previous ones also left after last year. A new English teacher this year lasted only a few days. There aren't many AP classes and students don't seem to pass the exams for the ones they do offer. While often the top rated school in Sutter county, you need to look at the numbers for Sutter county. Overall, poor public schools/scores. The top scores here are average at best elsewhere. Again, if you have an average student the academics are fine and small town environment nice; for highly academic students, there doesn't seem to be much challenge or enough academic opportunities.

East Nicolaus High School has done AMAZING things for my son. The faculty is wonderful, as they take an interest in each and every student. The student body is also unique in that they are all nice kids from nice families. I am yet to hear the typical high school horror stories of bullying and hazing. My son has never felt so at home and so accepted. I can't think of a negative thing to say. WONDERFUL high school experience.

I don't like that this school has such a small population, some teachers aren't the greatest, we have no cafeteria, and I especially don't like that the sport selection is horrible. The only plus is that the students can be closer to the teachers and counselors and the students are more well rounded than any larger school.

East Nicolaus is a good place to spend your four years at high school. i have to say that the teachers here are pretty amazing and they are great at what they do. I am having the time of my life. the sports programs are pretty good they are one of the best for a school our size. We are a california distinguished school.
