Be sure that if you enter your child in this school,that you have time to be fully involved in your child's education because you will be spending much of your time correcting the nonsense that is being taught.From Homework assignments on Great Americans covering people that are not American such as Nelson Mandela to propaganda like petitions that teachers have children collect signatures during school hours on Gun Control,with promise that the President will see their signatures.If they get enough kids to sign.Eighth graders are treated as small children by forcing teachers to walk kids to and from lunch as well as silent lunch. Not to mention the schools policy to punish all children for some that are caught conversing during their silent lunches. They take away Field days and events as their punishment. The few events(dances) that they have, are during class time.Students are forced to pay to attend,which knocks the reward for a well behaved child out,if the parent cannot afford to pay $5or $6more for their child to get out of class for about 40minutes.This school has some serious issues to address if they want to get kids to have some school spirit and interested in excelling.

My experience with Mcnicol was just great. The teachers involvement and professionalism was remarkable. My son attended all 3 years of the Magnet program and we were not disappointed. The Principal, Mr. Hamm, the beat. Do not hesitate to send your children at this school. Just remember you have to do your part as a parent, because success starts at home.

My daughter attended McNicol Middle School for three years and graduated at the top of her class last year. It is an excellent school. The administration and teachers were extremely supportive and caring. The staff was always available to resolve any problems that my daughter encountered. We wish McNicol continued success.

I'm currently a student at McNicol and it doesn't interest me.However to my perspective this school is a school of great oppurtunity.The program that they have of science and language is awesome.Each student in the magnet program is able to take either science or language as a course at least twice a day.Ive only been at McNicol for a year now and already I am able to decipher a lot of spanish.The sports teams there is unbeatable and the teachers are of quality. Though McNicol has turned into a D school but I think its the students faults for barely caring.One of the reasons why I don't like this school is because its not that safe to me(to many incidents) and I feel that the current magnet coordinator is to strict.

I have been at McNicol for 3 years, this being my last, and overall it's a well balanced facility. The teachers do what they aim to do, and the students learn along with that intention. We have imporved drastically in the past few months and hopefully this will continue.

I go to this school and I have to say that the teachers are really rude. Some kids are lucky and get a teacher who cares for their education but about 75% dont care at all.

McNicole is a great school with new leadership. The teachers care and are completely involved in the school and the students. However the parents do not participate in their childrens education.

McNicol Middle School is a very diverse school. It has two wonderful magnet programs, science/pre-engineering which gives students the opportunity to participate in hands on field trips and class projects.And the IAB magnet which allows students to learn either japenese, spanish, or french and the countries culture. The school also has school sports. With its year round schedule it allows students to get a break every three months.

Mcnicol has come along way,but still has a long way to go.This school has the potential to be dynamic,however due to the lack of support from parents it is a up hill battle to make any progress. The school caters to 1656 students and at any pta meeting or any function that the school gives only a hand full of parents attend. It is sad to see such poor support for our childrens education. We want to hold teachers accountable that's fine,however parents need to be held accountable too.Mcnicol has some good teachers however due to the lack of discipline, disruptive behavior constantly impedes educational success. Parents make a difference. Sac meeting held the third tues of every month media center 6:30pm.
