A lot of people have come on this site in anger and pointed fingers at people they had unresolved, personal problems with. That does not reflect this school. Others have complained about the school's rules. While some are a bit extreme, everyone is able to read the handbook BEFORE they send their child here. As a former student, I really know what NBS is like. It's small so yes there is drama and there will be people who disagree about how things should be run. My experience was not negative though. The classes are easily passed if the student does their part in contributing to their work. There are no try outs for sports so students can get as involved with their classmates as they wish. No one is left out and everyone can have a friend. Don't send your kid there to find god or to get fixed though because they won't. A lot of the students have bad morals and are never confronted about breaking the rules unless they cause the school problems. It is very partial. But despite the MANY problems, NBS was good for me. I was able to figure out who I am in the less hectic environment where at public school I was lost. If your child needs a change, NBS should be an option.

We love this school. It truly has the respect of Jesus at the heart of core and continuously provides the children with the education required to succeed in today's college/job market. We've had two children attend this school and we are extremely pleased. Yes, there have been differences with occasional teachers, but everyone does their best to work things out. The teachers care about the children and their education and the principal is outstanding. Can't recommend this school enough!!!

I'm currently a student at Nbs and I've been here for 10 years. This school is great, yes there are problems but none that are so bad that it would force you to leave. I have seen so many students come and go and frankly the ones that dislike the school or hate it are the ones that couldn't handle being told what to do. Also this school will not change your child if they are a bad or problem student. But nbs will show your child the right way to go but they cant make he or she walk down it. This school is structered a lot like the workplace in that obedience and discipline are major focuses. The teachers here really truly care about the students and will go out of their way to help you, in school work or even personal issues you may be struggleing with. All in all this school is fantastic. The reviews from more than two years ago DO NOT reflect the way the school is now. Nbs is bigger, better, and more like the high school experiences that you would want your child to have. As a ten year veteran, I recommend this school. Thank you to everyone at nbs for making my life great. A satisfied student. Parker Wold- Class of 2014

Northeast Baptist School is a great school. The teachers are Christian people; who actually care what your academic outcome is. I've been at NBS for four years, and I wouldn't go any where else. There some kids who don't like somebody telling them what to do, so they get on here and say bad things. Truthfully it is a good Christian school. -NBS student

This school is the worst I've ever been too. I was so put out and upset with this school that I left before the year was out. I actually suffered with emotional problems for several months because of this place. There are some really bad teachers! One teacher wouldn't stop talking. Talked about planes, trains, life, but never what we were supposed to be learning!! Another teacher confused the daylights out of everyone. They talked about things my mom would be horrified to know they talked about in front of me. I have MUCH MUCHMUCHMUCH more to say, but I don't want this to turn into a rant, so I'll leave with this statement. This may be a "Christian" school, but there's not much anything Christian about it. The good people and good things about this school were greatly outnumbered by the bad. I recommend another private school or homeschooling. Anything other then this school! -A Disgusted X-Student

There are some children who don't like rules, and their parents sometimes have problems, too. Many of them apparently come and go at NBS as part of their search for a place that doesn't exist. Then, they write a review here. The truth is that children in all grades get a good education at this school. The teachers and administration genuinely care about the students. You don't have to wonder what is being taught or about the character of the faculty. This is my child's fifth year there, and I have no reason to go elsewhere.

Northeast Baptist School has an excellent elementary school. The teachers know what they are doing, and they really strive for the young children to learn and grow in the Lord. However, the high school is just ridiculous. Mrs. Morgan is probably the only excellent teacher. She actually knows what she is doing, and she cares for the students and actually takes the time to call the parents about their child. Other than that, some of the teachers in the high school have absolutely no idea what they are doing, and do not need to be teaching what they are teaching. NBS should revert to just an elementary school.

I have to say that this school must have changed a lot since most of these reviews were written. My child is a high school student at this school. He attended public school in our area until last year and we had major problems. NBS was the blessing we prayed for. Without all the negative influence, my child is excelling in academics as well as positive behavior patterns. I no longer have to worry about what he is involved in or who he is with while at school. Sure, it is a much smaller school in comparison to the 'monster private schools' out there. But only because this school is not all about money, it is about God.

This school has gone down hill for some time now. Apart from the principal, the school would be great. She often goes back on her word to parents. This is not the Christian environment that they try to make it appear to be. I will not send my future children to any environment like this. The guidelines are ridiculously strict. They do not focus on what really needs to be addressed. Too many small issues are blown out of proportion, but even worse, the major issues are often ignored.

NBS is a fine school. The principal loves the Lord and does a very good job. Her money management skills are evident in that the school is able to operate on such low tuition. The teachers are equally fine people. Children get an excellent education that is truly Christian. Parents don't have to worry about the moral and ethical values of the staff. People who don't like rules shouldn't go there. From dress code to the children's behavior, the standards are very high. That's one reason effective teaching can take place there. It's also a reason I don't have to worry about my daughter's safety. I like the school and have no plans to go elsewhere.

My child has been attending NBS for the last eight years and have been VERY pleased with the teachers, curriculum, and even the principal. It has its ups and downs just like any other school, and I would highly reccomend NBS to anyone who asks me about a christian school. All the teachers love the Lord and want our children to know and love Him too. And my son loves the school and wants to attend 'forever' as he says.

I dont recomend your children attending this school. Well first off, The principal is a penny-pincher. She never adresses the current problem. She is so affraid to loose a money paying student or a teacher that she wont confront the problem to avoid 'hurting someones feelings'. This school is trying to hard to be what it is. Example: The dress code is too 'nit-picky'. down to the point to where if a girls shoes has a design on it they will make them get new shoes, but dont warn them on this before hand. The rule on the hair is so strict. i can understand not wanting a boy to have purple hair hanging in his eyes. But to make it above the ears and above the eyebrows? I believe it should be the parents choice on the hair. This is NOT a boarding school! -concerned parent

My child attended NBS for a couple of years. Though I believe the concept of the shcool is good, it is my opinion that the administration is in great need of restructuring. I also believe that if some type of restructuring doesn't take place soon, the school as well as the administration is headed for major problems. Though I firmly believe that we are in desperate need of a school that offers a sound, Christian education I could not and would not recommend this school. After learning of the things our child had been exposed to, we felt cheated and betrayed by the school's administration.

I don't like this shool at all. The only thing that matters to them is money and the tuition is to high.

I go to nbs and they worry to much about the color of our shoes. What we eat for lunch and if we socks on or not. Instead they should be worried about keeping teachers around for more than a year and our education. In high school and middle school we never do anything in class and my grades have dropped since i started going here. The principal only disiplines who she wants and how bad they are punisheed neverfollows the so called 'handbook' as a student. I dont recomend this school at all

My children are no longer at this 'Christian' school. The school is not what it claims to be. The principal has a lot of people fooled with her so called 'Christianity', I'm not one of them. There are several questionable practices here, although the board, for whatever reason, does not care to address. If you're looking for a Christlike environment with wonderful academics for your children, Northeast Baptist School does not fit the bill.

It has been 2 years since we moved. My son attended NBS in K4 and Kindergarten. During that time, NBS had it's first graduating senior. Surely there are kinks working out as more students go through the upper levels there. Enough cannot be said about the individual concern for your child's academic, spiritual, and moral education. I love NBS.

I must admit that this school does have its problems. But what school doesn't. The teachers are great and love the Lord. My children have been there for 3 years and will be there as long as we live in this area. My children learn verses and christian morals. Although my husband and I teach these same morals to our kids, we always need back up. The extra curricular activities are growing along with the number or certified teachers. These teachers are very dedicated and somehow find ways to teach without letting the negativity enter into the classroom. What people have to realize is that the principal can only do what 1 person can do. She does her best. I thank the Lord for this school and its caring faculty and staff.

My children attended NBS for several years. There are a few wonderful teachers there, but there are some major problems with the upper grades. The administrator listens to concerns but does nothing to correct problems. As a result, there is a big teacher turnover. The teachers you see one year will not be the same ones you see the next year. There is too much focus on minor infractions (hair color, speckle book color, belts, lunch content,and etc.) and too little on more important ones (students leaving campus, teachers not teaching,and etc.) My children are no longer there. That says it all.

The principal is more concerned with pinching pennies than anything else.
