I Live in the neighborhood, and although its not the best, I am very impressed with Nims. They have great teachers and opportunity for boys to join the Tallahassee Boys Choir, which is outstanding. I think Nims is on the up and coming and my child is proud to be a Trojan.

So far I love this school for my son. He didn't like school until he came to this one and although he has only been there a few weeks I can already tell a big difference in him.

When my granddaughter began at Nims I had heard mixed reviews about the school. I took a trip from Atlanta to Tallahassee just to visit Nims. It was a special day for parents to visit their child in the classroom and hear about the new programs and other areas of progress the school had made. I was so impressed with the energy, philosophy and spirit of the Principal it took me a while to focus on the other activities planned for parents. I attended the event with my son who is raising my granddaughter as a single parent. He was satisfied that her welfare, learning and social skills were of the utmost importance to her teachers and the principal. The most important evidence of Nims being a great school was the happiness and success my granddaughter is now experiencing there.I challenge negative minds to speak with the principle & happy students.

They have really bad control there. It is really poor and they really need a makeover.

Nims middle school is a very good school they have the disipline and the education that students have and need to make it on in high school i would know because i use to go there and it really helped me to be a better person and now i am working on my sophmore year in high school but if i had to rate this school they will get a ten because the princpal is a really responsible person and they help kids understand the things that are important and the teachers there are wondefull also and they can help kids in the future.What I have seen in the inside is very good they have a stedy enviroment and they make sure thaty kids have a good education and the teachers are very good in helping the kids understand what they need to know and stuff like that is good

I have two children who attend this school, one of them is disabled. At first the setting for the ESE classes which book skilld ans life skills really appeal to me for my son. now he is in his thrid year and i'm not satisfied at all, he seems to have no book skills what so ever. As for my other son who is not in ESE classes is doing poorly also. In my opion most of the teachers there are there for a paycheck and not to help with their students. I have tries to contact the teachers many times and have not recieved one responce from them. Which disappoints me because I tried to be involved in my childrens school.
