Academic Philosophy

At Nickels Intermediate, students begin to transition from the elementary level to the secondary level in just two short years.  Our teachers pride themselves in their ability to prepare students for the rigor, independence, and responsibility required to be successful at the secondary level.

We are pleased to offer four exploratories at Nickels Intermediate. At the fifth grade level, we offer general music, art, STEM (science and math, project-based course), and physical education. At the sixth grade level, we offer art, STEM, and physical education. In addition, we offer students the choice between choir, band, or orchestra. Students who qualify will also be eligible to participate in advanced math (pre-algebra) in sixth grade.
