Our desire here at Nicholson is to involve parents in the education of their children. Each school in Georgia receives a climate star rating issued by the Georgia Department of Education. This rating is determined by survey data collected by students, parents, and staff of each local school. Parents, we need your help! Your input is valuable and important! Please click the link below to access the survey. You may complete the survey using your personal computer, smartphone, or tablet. The survey is available through March 1, 2019.
We appreciate your feedback and, as always, we are aiming for that 5-star rating!

Little things can make a big difference. You can help support the Ronald McDonald House of Atlanta by collecting the little tabs you pull to open soda, soup or other aluminum cans. We donate the tabs to the Ronald McDonald house, and the funds generated from recycling these aluminum gems help offset the many expenses of running the house.
