Robert L. Nickels Intermediate School Ratings & Reviews

June 23, 2017 Submitted by a parent
I couldn't disagree more with the other reviews on here, I'm a bit surprised by them actually. We have lived in the area a few years now and Nickles is our favorite school in Byron Center. The principal, teachers, and office staff are all excellent. They place a high value on education and work hard to help each child succeed. My daughter has struggled throughout the years to keep up and the teachers and staff helped her get to the point she needed to be and beyond. The staff also took a special interest in teaching my daughter to stay organized and responsible--something she has always struggled with. The office staff are warm and welcoming, I always enjoy walking into the school. The school counselor is AMAZING, seriously, she is the best. The communication is great, we get a weekly email from the office giving us updates and also weekly emails from the teachers giving us updates about the kids' progress. The teachers are excellent! There is lots of parent involvement, it's been fun going in and helping with the various activities. My daughter has loved all the extracurricular activities they offer (i.e. the early morning yoga class and music class among many others). Overall excellent school and district. Highly recommend this school.

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.
