  • I like my school Nichols because the teachers teach you a lot of things. I dislike all of the gang fights that takes place there and the low test scores

  • I went to this school for 1 month, but I think it was a really good school. The teachers are nice and they teach you many things. The only thing I didn't like was that we had to use uniforms and I got tired of using them, but in overall I think is a great school!

  • I think Nichols is a good school, but I think we don't need to wear uniforms because we have other clothes that need to be worn.
