NCS used a learning approach that allowed both my sons to explore methods of learning unavailable in more rigid school curricula, both public and private. I would heartily recommend to other parents based on our family's experience.

NCS has small class sizes and excellent teachers. Parent participation in fund raising, blood, sweat and tears pushes quality of the facility and class learning experiences over the top.
