He treats ABCD like his children so if u are on ABCD good for you otherwise don't expect to talk to him. He is the guy you talk to for anything ABCD.

even if you're on ABCD he won't help you out if he doesn't like you... and abcd ppl follow after that... besides a few ppl no one really does anything... he tries to make it feel like a family but it's not possible bc the white rich privileged bitchy faves never try to even include you so don't believe him... just do your part for the school and be nice even if they are not

you'd think student council was built for inclusion, instead nickel picks a bunch of kids who remind him of himself and makes them exclusive

People on here are saying that he favors ABCD, which is true, but this is because he is working with them 24/7 to organize events around the school. Yes there are fewer minorities on ABCD, but at interviews very few minorities and new immigtants came out. This is NOT his fault, these roles were advertised to ESL and minority students just as much as the rest of the school, but very few applied. If you have ever talked to him, he is extremely nice and well intentioned.

Great guy if you're in his inner circle of favourites. Not a privileged favourite? Out of luck!

I was in ABCD and Even with people on student council he peaks favorites and has biased views
even though I tried so hard to get involeved with in just more than my role in ABCD last year, he didn't help much and I had a hard time socializing with people on student council

He comes off friendly but it becomes pretty evident who his favorites are. He only has time for his favorites in basketball and student council. If you aren't one of the favorites you are either invisible or a complete waste of time. His lack of impartiality towards students shows VERY clearly and you soon realize he isn't there to give you an equal shot.

He is very preferential towards his favourites...he will ensure abcd kids are held to a high regard and will get them many school awards (these people just make posters) The asian kids who are in AP are completely neglected

I say this with the utmost discretion...he has a method of lower treatment for immigrant children of lesser income whose parents aren't as involved in the school community...if you don't fall under that category he is a great teacher.

Does seem to favour ABCD. However, even if you don't participate in ANYTHING, he knows everything about you! Slightly odd, but pretty cool!

Have some respect people. Nickel puts a lot of effort into what he does. Sure sometimes he's a lil tempered. but give him a break. He's the best man for ABCD. No Nickel? No WCI.

One of the reasons WCI is an amazing school. Coaches 2 teams, runs Student Council, helps out with everything around the school.
