Nichols School

1250 Amherst St, Buffalo, NY 14216

Established by William Nichols of Boston, then under the vigorous leadership of Dr. Joseph Dana Allen beginning in 1909, Nichols has always been characterized by efficient college preparation. In January 1972, the school became coeducational, with girls being admitted into all grades. In addition to the traditional courses offered as part of a college preparatory program, an extensive arts program (including photography, dance, painting, computer graphics, chorus and orchestra) is available. Nichols encourages all upper schoolers to perform community service. For years, the middle school (grades 5-8) was located on the Nottingham campus, one mile from the upper school (grades 9-12). In August 2001, however, Nichols consolidated campuses by adding a middle school building at its Amherst Street location.
