I love NHS because I have taught there for 28 years and I have a lot of great memories from the many awesome kids I have met there.

Nickerson is a littler school, so i believe the students get a little more one-on-one time with the teachers rather than those that go to Hutchinson High. Their academic achievement is always above other surrounding schools.

About the tests


In 2011-2012 Kansas used the Kansas State Assessments (KSA) to test students in grades 3 though 8, 11 and 12 in reading and math; in grades 4, 7, 11 and 12 in science; and in grades 6, 8 and 12 in history-government. The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Kansas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
