It is the only school in the Nicolet Unified School District, which serves Glendale, Fox Point, Bayside, and River Hills. Primary schooling is administered by three feeder districts. The Nicolet Unified School district is one of the few school districts in Wisconsin to be made up of only one school. Its main feeder schools are Glen Hills Middle School, Maple Dale Middle School, and Bayside Middle School.

Nicolet is one of a handful of high schools in the state of Wisconsin to offer Microsoft Certification.[citation needed] Students earn college credit for each application they become certified in. Certification are available in 365, Access, Excel, SharePoint, Word and more.

Nicolet High School was named a Blue Ribbon School by the Department of Education[1] and was listed as one of the 50 best schools in Wisconsin by US News and World Report.[2]

Nicolet spends significantly more money per student than any other comparative high school in Wisconsin in order to ensure a high quality of education.[3] In addition, its teachers, almost all of whom have a master's degree or a doctorate, are both the most-experienced and highest paid teachers in the state.[4]

In 2013, as reported in an article by Beverly Taylor that appeared on CNN's website, five students from the high school got a perfect score of 36 on the ACT college entrance exam (nationwide, only 781 out of 1.66 million students got a perfect score in the graduating class of 2012). Of the 257 seniors, 50 got a 30 or higher that same year.[5]
