I do not place much value on the opinions expressed on review sites. It is evident that this site has been used a forum for individuals to lash out in frustration. Personally, I have had a great experience at NHCS. My 10+years experience with the school, staff, faculty, and administration has validated my belief that NHC cares about students, their families, and the community.

Our 3rd Grade child entered NHCS as a new student in Aug. '16. After just 6 weeks, & MANY hours of study at home, our child was deflated! We were also told by some classmates about the teacher making rude, insensitive comments to our child! Our child told us some screwed up "Biblical" views that were being taught, i.e. "Hell is a place where you sleep forever"! WHAT??? Our child's teacher lied right to our faces & the director supported the teacher's lies! Our child went from am "A" student to "C" student drowning in homework! His Math test was 6 PAGES long!!! Really??? The majority of the staff are related to the director & they run the school like a dictatorship! If a parent finds fault with a staff member, they close ranks & "shun" the parent(s)! Then they proceed to humiliate the child in class at every opportunity! I smell another "Waco"! Good-bye & good riddance NHCS! Our child is SO happy not to attend this school any longer! He is SO excited to have Mommy be his teacher again! :)

Report Overall Experience: The other bad reviews about this school are correct. Our private school closed, my sons class had 8 kids in it. NHC offered to pick up this students, and since there was no time to look into other options (it closed 2 days before Christmas Break) 7 or so of the students made the transition. We are now just 6 weeks in and there are maybe 2 of the 7 students left at this school. I don't think they wanted our students, it almost seems as if they were targeted to get rid of us. It is a family ran and owned "Church" business. If you aren't one of them, don't bother. Another child pulled out yesterday, I pulled mine last week. The principal told the mom today "I've noticed the ones who've left are the ones who can't keep up", besides the fact that its rude, its a complete lie. My child test 3 grades ahead of where he is. He kept up just fine. However, in 4 weeks they took a child who LOVES to learn and was happy to go to school everyday and turned him into a kid who cried every Sunday because it meant he had to go to school the next day. He cried every morning on the way there, and told me he even hated Math now. Which has always been his favorite subject. He wasn't himself anymore, it was time to go. How they did it so quickly - I'll never know. All of the kids within a week after leaving were back to their normal personalities. These were not "bad" or "misbehaving" kids, these were all kids who were taught at a private Christian school - but it was loving and warm not cold like NHC. When I was discussing the school change with my Pediatrician even she said "NHC expects your child to conform to their school, they will not conform to your child" so if your child fits into their box, great. Mine however is not a box, and they sucked the life right out of him.

My kids love school, perform excellent on their achievement testing, and love the extra-curriculars. Love the strong emphasis on good character training!

Welcome to North Hardin Christian School, a place of lecture, boredom, and ignorance. No where will you find these three attributes other than here. Let's start with the boredom aspect. Students sit in a classroom doing nothing (I thought school was about learning). The classes mainly involve lectures that lead to nowhere. They are about either how attitude or disrespect will make you a failure in life. A student's personal opinion is considered disrespectful. Instead, the only opinion that matters is that of the teacher's. As for ignorance, very little teaching is done; but instead, complaining about a student's attention to detail. Also, more lectures about how college is the most important thing in life; and if you do not go to college, you are a wasted mind. I am very fed up with the school's system of discipline and order. Sometimes I question the administration's ability to lead the student body. Between in-school suspensions for hugging or even sometimes touching the opposite sex, to standing up for what you personally believe in, favorites are chosen based on how a teacher views the student. This happens often, but worst than that, the school will often attempt to control a student's personal life outside of school. Student's have also been stalked by teachers in the school on social media, then questioned about their moral standard. The majority of teachers do not even carry teaching credentials from accredited universities. Pensacola Christian College, for example, is located in Pensacola, Florida, and is not an accredited university. It is no surprise that this is where North Hardin Christian School recommends all their students to go. Dr. Clayton Hunt, the disciplinary for the middle and high school students, lives by the philosophy that facial hair of any kind is “unprofessional.” He has stated this on many occasions. Not to mention, hair should be cut short to, in his words, a “professional standard.” Cellular devices, laptops, and tablets are completely out of the question. If one were to have any such thing on their person it would result in its removal for five days and three demerits to go onto their record. In summary, North Hardin Christian School lacks the fundamentals of education.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly disagree

Amount of homework: Disagree

This school is backwards with homework. In elementary school, the kids are given homework that could take them three hours to do. As the grade level goes up, homework is less often assigned and, by the twelfth grade, no homework is given at all. How is this supposed to help students in college?


Develops character: Strongly disagree

This school does not teach honesty, integrity, and fairness to its students. It teaches them how to be "spoon fed" and to believe everything they hear. They basically give you what you need to know and make life too easy, without properly preparing the student for college. Moreover, the problem with this school is it makes students very oppressive towards the opposite sex. They do not encourage interaction between male and females at all, which is one of the most beneficial relationships among people.

As a former graduate and now parent of three children who attend NHC, I am so thankful for this place! In a world where wrong is right and truth is relevant, NHC stands as a beacon of light only to those who are willing to deny themselves and follow Christ! The faculty and staff at NHC guided me through ten years of Biblical truth towards a life of saving faith and amazing grace. From an academic standpoint, I graduated with highest honors from the college of my choice and love my current job. Christianity is an exclusive religion, and "few there be that find it;" the world hates this fact; but the administration continues to promote the difficult truths of God's Word and a life led by the Holy Spirit. Because of this place, I can say, "It is well with my soul!"
