They follow through with discipline when it is needed. Unfortunately today not all kids are respectful of the rules. When things happened the principal dealt with it and the problems went away. Our prior school ignored things in order to not upset parents and that created a unsafe environment for my child. Consistency with rules no matter what the issue was definitely present. In addition there were lots of resources with regards to support when issues arise.
My child entered into this school after a bad situation at her prior school. I could never have imagined a more positive, friendly, Christ like atmosphere for my child. In just one school year they got her caught up with her academics and our college planning and we were able to secure several scholarships and a great list of college acceptances. The kids in all grades were kind to her and she has made incredible life long friends in this short time. Every day for her was a good day and the love and happiness radiates from her. The schools mission and vision are what our society needs and I only wished we had more years together. I am grateful for the best year in her school history to be her Senior year at NCCS.
Teacher quality varies all over the place. Some teachers should be fired right now. They view class as their opportunity to teach their own right-wing views to the students or teach unhealthy messages to girls. Some teachers are terrific and are not respected by their bosses.
The school lacks in discipline to ensure that kids follow the Christian beliefs. The teachers and staff do not see what is really going on and often don't have control of the classes. Behavior that I thought would not be present at a christian school but at a public school is quite present here. In some classes, the students (or a student or two) rules the class. This is chiefly a problem with the boys.
My children have been a part of NCCS for 5 years now, beginning in K3. We have been so blessed with wonderful teachers who truly know my children and care about them as individuals. The academics have been a great balance of being challenging, but appropriate for the grade level. My children have participated in programs available to the elementary students that the high school coaches and players run - basketball camps and lessons, cheerleading camps. They are always so excited that then the older kids and the coaches know their names and stop to say "hi" to them when they see them around campus. It's such a wonderful family-like environment.
The teachers and the student life directors teach the kids that following Biblical principles is the most important thing you can do in life. The kids see the example of this lifestyle by those leading them, and it makes a huge impact on the kids' lives.
My kids have never pulled all-nighters. My elementary kids could get their homework done in after care, my middle schooler could finish it in study hall, and I rarely saw my high schooler spend more than 1 hour a night.
