Our eldest daughter entered NCCS as a new 9th grader in 2016. This is where our family journey began at NCCS. We had such an incredible first year at NCCS, that we as a family decided to move all of our other 4 children into NCCS! The school, as a whole, is top notch, with excellent, high educational standards that challenge everyone our children at the level that they need! There are advanced levels for Math and English beginning in middle school and Academies for Business, Math/Science, Education, Ministry, Arts (Theater, Art, Vocal), Sports, that begin in 9th grade! These are our Magnet programs that are within our high school! Amazing for a small private Christian school to have that available to our children! From the moment you enter NCCS doors, you are greeted with christian music & genuine smiles from all you encounter! It speaks volumes when you see children ranging from K4 to 12 grade smiling & happy while attending school. High schoolers being friendly with the younger kiddos exchanging high fives and encouraging them to shoot a hoop before class even begins! There is a DEFINITE sense of community at NCCS where we all become one FAMILY! Having kids in lower, middle and high school, we have been able to assess all of the educational, social & athletic opportunities. The entire school uses GOOGLE classroom and calendar where information between student and teachers are shared; to include all homework, notes and lessons. Communication is exceptional at NCCS! Emails, texts,news letters, weekly posts are incorporated so that both students and parents alike, know exactly what is going on at all times. Whether it's the large variety of sports programs available to those beginning in lower school all the way thru to high school or the after school clubs to include Robotics, Mach 5, there is something for everyone to participate in. Overall, we have been extremely pleased with our experience at NCCS and are proud to call NCCS.. Family!

There are mentor opportunities throughout the year, where a high schooler is carefully paired with a elementary or middle schooler to meet weekly to guide and give friendly support to whatever the need is! The Timothy program is a wonderful way for students to serve one another while providing support & connections with fellow brothers and sisters in Christ! The school provides a Spring Term program where students in middle and Upper care expected to participate in Community service and mission programs. They may chose to going over seas such as providing water filters to communities in Haiti or participate in local programs such as feeding the homeless in Atlanta.There is definite education experiences for the entire school during the entire academic year in order to teach children John 13:34 "A new commandment I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so also you must love one another. 35 By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you love one another."


Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree

We feel that every teacher employed at NCCS is there because they LOVE to teach & share their knowledge with their students. There are before & after school help classes where the teachers are more than willing to meet and help your student understand & review the lessons. The entire school uses GOOGLE classroom and calendar where information between student and teachers are shared; to include all homework, notes and lessons. Communication is exceptional at NCCS!

Amount of homework: Strongly agree

Homework is definitely a part of NCCS and it is to ensure that all students achieve a strong comprehension on the taught material for the day. High schooler are given optional homework to challenge and prepare them for the following days lesson plan. They chose whether or not they need strengthening on taught subjects. It teaches them accountability and independent learning skills.

Supports LD students: Strongly agree

We have a son who needs a little extra attention when it comes to his academics and social needs. is a program called The Moving Forward Program that provides accommodations to those who may need assistance in Math, English, executive functioning skills, extra time for quizzes and test, etc. We have been extremely pleased with all the high quality services that our son has received and he has had a remarkable first year as a 6th grader!

We started at NCCS when our eldest daughter was in Kindergarten and she is now in the 5th grade. All three of our children now attend NCCS and range from 5th grade to Kindergarten. A year doesn't go by that we are not thankful for the ability to send our children to North Cobb Christian. NCCS is a well kept, clean and student focused. The staff is exceptionally led and provided many opportunities for professional development. Diversity is held at high regard and a family atmosphere is always emphasized. The opportunities provided to each one of our children are unmatched.

Amount of homework: Neutral

It varies teacher to teacher. However, most of the teachers have wrong approach to tests. They use tests as punishments, not as an opportunity to find out gaps and address them.

Each school has good teachers and bad teachers. There are wonderful teachers in NCCS, that deserve respect and praise, but this post is not about them. The role of the school principle and administration is to work with the staff, provide guidance and supervision, and ultimately, remove teachers who do not care about their students. NCCS seems to be totally lacking attention to this area. There are several teachers that everybody knows about who do not explain the material and give arbitrary bad grades to the majority of the students in each class. For example, when the class average on a test is 67, this is really not students' fault, but rather a grade teach got for his/her teaching ability. While administration can easily see that there is a problem by looking at the average grade a teacher gives, or by reading emails that concerned parents send, they choose not to do anything to correct the situation. This is especially dangerous in High School, when "bad" teacher can have a negative impact on students transcripts and their future opportunity to get into a good college.

I hear the academics are great! What impresses me most about this school is it's commitment to diversity. When I walk into the school, it feels like a family, and I can't tell the rich families from the average families. It is so refreshing!

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.
