Unfair - if you are his favorite you will get more credit than you deserve. If you are not his favorite, he will hold you down.

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.

Truly truly disappointed with the politics which exist at this school...parents send your children to Sir John A if they are academic

I've heard from my son and his friends discuss how they are recognized for their achievements...Nickel predetermines his winners based on his favorites

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.

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

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.

easy-going and fun to be around. he know's nearly every-bodies names and he tries to interact with all of us. he's super nice and amazing at what he does. he's a large part of wci, and i honestly think wci would be far different without him here.

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.
