Nicolet spends significantly more money per student than any other comparative high school in Wisconsin in order to ensure a high quality of education. 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.
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.
