Nichols is a place where you can find your passion. With over 35 student organizations, 14 varsity sports, 3 international exchange programs and leading-edge music, dance, theater and arts programs, students explore a range of activities and engage in leadership opportunities that complement their education. At Nichols, students maintain a high level of discipline, work together to achieve their goals while forming bonds that will last a lifetime.
Modeled like a small liberal arts college, Nichols' 30-acre campus has plenty of spaces to study, train, create and relax. Students walk along tree-lined sidewalks between classes. Many of our buildings retain their classic 19th century character with a modern flare: Large book collections populate the bookshelves of classrooms, student artwork decorates the hallways, and our state-of the art technology encourages students learning and innovation. The School is minutes away from galleries, historic houses, Olmstead parks and The Buffalo Zoo and our faculty harness all these environments to expand our students' learning.
With sustainability, flexibility and cutting-edge math and science instruction at forefront, the Class of 1963 Center for Math and Science opened in 2010. The 24,000 square-foot facility houses eight mathematics classrooms; seven Upper School science classrooms with labs; the 45-seat William G. Gisel, Jr. ’70 Lecture Hall; and the School’s Information Technology Department.
