With the excellent teaching methodologies, discipline and good school management, I can just hope that most schools can be more like this one. Students are #1 priority! Truly, teachers in this school are inspiration to prospective ones in all sense of the word.

As a new parent to St.Nicholas school, I am EXTREMELY happy I decided to send my children here. The school is excellent. The teachers are very caring and encourage the children to be the best they can be.Sr.Joan is doing a wonderful job running the school.

I went to an open house for St.Nicholas. I have to say I was very impressed with the school. I like how safe the school is. Someone must answer the door at all times. The principal is strict which is fantastic. Parents are required to volunteer each month. The small classes are also a plus. I hope that my child gets accepted in the school. It would be a positive experience for him. Especially coming from a terrible school Sts. Joseph & Dominic Academy.

St. Nicholas is an excellent school where the children learn their academic subjects and good Christian values. Many people in the area remark at how well mannered the children from St. Nicholas are. This is due to a caring and dedicated staff that help them along the way. The principal is very good about maintaing order and keeps the school very well run. They also help the students prepare for the future by challenging them enough so that the transition to High School will be that much easier.

I have 2 children at St.Nicholas they are very happy their. The children in this school are very respectful. When they hear that another catholic school is closing they panic they tell me that they love their school. In this school the children are disipline in a respecful way. These days I see other children that lack that. If you want a school that teaches your children disipline and structure and also loveing and careing for the students this the school for you. They also have a great open door policy.

All 3 of my children were very unhappy at this school. They were all well performing students. Although the majority of the teachers are great the principal are little to be desired. In this environment the child is always wrong and the principal never sides with the parents on anything. My children were very damaged. They became nervous wrecks) by the experience here. This school is in need of new leadership. Parent involvement was limited even though you are required to perform a duty each semester.

As a former student of St. Nicholas School, of the graduating class of 1992 to be exact, I have nothing but fond memories of St. Nick's. It was a pleasure to knock on the door to register my 2 kids and see my second grade teacher open the door. I am excited about having them attend my former alma mater, and I have full confidence in the school.
