Great teachers, super-committed parents, curriculum that encourages lifelong exploration and learning.
I learn so much from the teachers...they are strategic, wise and loving.
NCS is a terrific school. The teachers and staff are wonderful. They are smart and innovative, but most importantly, they love what they do and they care about their students and the community as a whole. NCS is a place that truly nurtures children and encourages them to grow both as learners and as people.
We have organic gardens run by the students, and teachers. The children are learning from real life situations.
My son says about his school--I love everything about the Neighborhood Charter School. It's fun, great, love all my teachers, they let us pick what we want to learn with our subjects. It's a blast!
I love NCS because of the community and respect it fosters among students, between students and teachers and between teachers and parents. We take care of each other at NCS. My kids (1st and 3rd graders) LOVE school! They are enthusiastic and excited learners and I have to drag them out of the building at the end of most days!
My boys are enthusiastic about learning, and it comes from teachers and staff with open minds who foster creativity, listen with patience, encourage explorations into whatever and invite parents to take part in their children's learning. I love relearning elementary school through my children and am astounded daily by just how much I really don't know...and that they do. Thank you NCS.
We moved to the neighborhood to make sure our daughter would have a place in this wonderful school. We have not been disappointed!
Our shcool is awesome. Our teachers are commited to the children and truly love their jobs and it shows. We have a high degree of parental involvement and we take part in our children's education. This is a one of a kind enviroment that offers a great education for our kids. It is truly a community based school. I love this school!
I love the caring teachers, dedicated parents, and the passion for all that everyone involved with the school have for the success of the kids.
It is a place where all cultures and family makeups are embraced and celebrated.
I'm a neighborhood resident and love the way the community, kids, parents and administration have created this wonderful resource for our city.
NCS - Neighborhood Charter School prepared our kids for middle school and has made them life long learners! What a great school and example of community! Great Staff and Teachers!
NCS promotes strong community and instills a sense of inclusion, confidence and peace within the children...the elements necessary for a sustainable, peaceful society. It is unlike any school I've ever been apart of.
NCS is great because the staff and parents create a loving environment to learn.
I love this community school that takes a whole child and hands on learning approach
Because NCS is a wonderful, nurturing caring environment in which my child can learn. The teachers and staff are amazing. The school has helped our neighborhood so much. We are extremely lucky to have NCS in Grant Park.
It's the Best! We have a PTCA meeting every morning. Kids perform, teachers love it, kids love it, parents love it...
The constuctivist curriculum, caring teachers who consistently go the extra mile for their students' success, and an involved parent network.
