Kids with adhd are completely left behind. The school will go through the 504 process, but then say the kid doesn't qualify for services. Principle and counselor are worthless and refused to listen to teacher's advice regarding services. Zero communication between parents and teachers when child is falling behind. New common core assessments are not allowed to be finished at home, but parent is not told assignment isn't even started until after due date when child can no longer recieve full credit. Only positive thing was when my son was bullied, bully was suspended.

Good school, but if a child is being bullied, they give the bully umpteen million chances. There are no consequences for the bully that do any good. What about the No Bullying Policy? Why have it if they're not going to do anything about it? Extremely poor communication between teachers and parents. I have to work very hard to extract information and get flyers concerning anything going on at the school. I have almost begged the school to let me volunteer, but they don't want parents' help in the classroom.

We have had a great couple of years at Nickels Intermediate. Loving teachers and great staff. I do understand about the the poor comunication. It is all on the teacher to get info out and there should be a better process. More web info would be great! Like forms and reminders sent out . It is a hard transition for a 5th grader because they are use to being Coddled at the Elem. level. The busing was the worst of the whole transition, if I could rate the busing for Byron I would give it one star. I feel the new Principal is a great Leader and has made some awesome changes to Nickels. We all have to be an advocate for our children, stay positive, give constructive criticism , and be involved.

I am in full agreement with review by Parent. The new principal unfortunatly is not a leader and doesn't bring excitment to the school. In most of the state and country, 5th and 6th graders are still considered older elementary, but Nickels quickly throws them into the Middle School mentality. Byron Cener Schools is no longer reaching its potential. Also, no special functions such as Odyessey of the Minds or Science Olympiad.

I love Byron Center Schools as a whole but Nickels is a different story. The parents are not keep in the loop of things with the children and the office staff is very Rude. They treat the children more like adults and have them call when they are sick or hurt instead of having the school call. I do not agree with this.
