was the best Principle hands down. When i was in Grade 10 it was his last year cause he was moving to martin grove collegiate. He is waay better then the principle that is there now. He was always walking around visiting the class see how they were doing. He never made himself look like the "i am the boss" type of teacher. Sometimes we would forget that he was the principle! loool. But nevertheless hope he is doing well at the school he is now.
was my priciple for five years. could always count on him to do the right thing. never arrogant or pushy he always did whats best for the school.
saw him yesterday when he visited RCI. I wish he was still our principal
That Nigro is one of the coolest principals ever. A bit lazy though.
friendly guy who cares about students (why else would he have chosen this job?) but yeah, i always get the impression that something is terribly wrong when he says "an important announcement..." but what else could he say? "this is not an important announcement", and then absolutely no one would listen, not that they often do anyway. so that's just the way it is.
His thought of the day to start off the day ruins the day for most people. Makes us stand too long after the anthem, besides that, I saw him watching the World Cup/Gold medal game all day during school hours.
The only thing I don't like about him is the fact that every time he speaks on the PA, it sounds like something bad is going to happen.
to the person below who say that nigro is horrendous. obviously you must be one of those guys who thinks they can do whatever they want. riverdale is the best and nigro is a cool principal. i heard a bunch of crap from grade 12's 2 years ago who tried to plan an illegal trip/allnight drinking party and nigro caught them and told their parents. that's just too bad for them. i guess if your a dope head who is high all the time, nigro doesnt make your day.
I just started at rIverdale this year. This is the first principal who I have ever seen stop people in the hallway and ask them how things are going. I like the thoughts of the day and i like it that principal reads them most days. shows he really cares.
I really like him. He taught my sister at Riverdale years ago and she still talks about what a great teacher was.
Nigro is cool. Always stops us in the hall and caf to talk to us and see how we are doing. He really cares.
There are still alot of fools out there who think that they can show up for class whenever they want and roam the halls when they want. Maybe these fools shouldn't be in school. The late rule that was brought in and cleaned up alot of this garbage. The fact that the deviants in the school dont like him only proves that he is a good Principal
I think Mr. Nigro is the perfect balance between strict and nice. The type of thing you need in a principal...
Mr. Nigro is the best!!!!!! Just what Riverdale needs.
He makes riverdale more horrendous by the year. Not a very cool guy either. I think his 'thought of the day' speeches on the announcements are soo useless, he has to face the fact that nobody cares.
one of the best teachers @ RCI, not like other principals, that just doesn't help out... instead makes the day miserable. This Guy makes your day brighter
