Facilities Vision

Nicolet High School strives to accelerate the achievement of every student. We believe our facilities should enhance learning and improve academic performance by:

  • Providing a safe, well maintained, sustainable and welcoming environment that promotes student and staff wellbeing

  • Promoting a culture of inclusion, school pride and community partnership 

  • Creating flexible spaces that support student and staff collaboration 

  • Ensuring opportunities for community education and recreation
