I think the school and the principle is tremendous! My son is currently in 7th grade, needed more challenges in class was put into more advanced projects and my daughter it was determined early in the school year needed help in Math and English received it. I was pleased to see that their needs were noticed early and addressed, even though they were at both ends of the academic spectrum. As far as the principle goes, i think some people might be rubbed the wrong way by her, but her ability to be strong, focused and still be fair and loving overall, along with the school now having a waiting list for enrollment is a testament to her leadership.

I agree with the other reviewers regarding the quality of this school. The cost is in line with the quality, and the teachers are involved and caring; however, the principal pays lip service to what she writes in her newsletter. Her keynote speeches are so positive - but incongruous to her demeanor.

Just graduated at this school, and more than a handful of our graduating class got accepted into top high schools. Its fun and educational. Fun because there's no peer pressure, and no cliques. People just chillax and accept each other. Educational because the teachers are excellent, and successfully teach us what we need to learn. The principal is...Unbecoming. I'm kinda disappointed that the assistant principal is leaving the school. But, nca is a great place to be. *Two thumbs up!*

very good school, very good education, but my top concern is the principal. Her attitude is very bad, and if this continues, i might take my child out of there, but the co principal is very nice and helpful towards the students, but the principal is just awful.
