North Chevy Chase is like a private public school. The teachers are fabulous and all three of our children have had a wonderful experience and received a top-notch education there. It feels more like a family than a public school. Many parents are involved and the principal is great. I can't recommend it highly enough.

This is our first year at NCC and so far our experience has been extremely positive, the environment is very calm and focused, both my children and performing well above grade level and support by their respective teachers. It has a small school feel. The teachers we have are extremely involved and supportive of all their kids, both my kids look forward to each day and these teachers are really helping reinforce a love of learning, the principal seems to run a very tight ship.

Because they've helped my daughter (who's in 4th grade) maintain a 5/6 grade math level!

My child has had a very positive experience at NCC. The teachers and principal are involved and confident in their abilities and in the abilities of the kids. The school feels calm, relaxed, and in control when I'm there. The staff and teachers have always been friendly and available to me. This school has a good culture and is a good environment for learning.

My daughter goes to this school and loves it, especially the after-school program called 'Wonders.' The caregivers are so loving and wholesome. She loves the picnics and the activities, like painting, kickball, mulberry bush picking, and climbing. The fact that 'Wonders' is in the school building gives me great piece of mind so I don't have to worry about her safety. I just come pick her up after work and she's already had her homework done and ready to go home!

NCC is an excellent school with the best teachers I have ever seen. Ms. Taylor and Ms. Erno are prime examples of what being a good teacher is all about. Ms. Greene, the principal does her job extremely well.

This is a fantastic school. All programs soar; one example is the music program: it has about a 75% participation rate because the teacher is so loved and does such a good job. The entire staff is great, and there are great parents working PTA to make it even better. Another bonus here is that it teaches grades 3-6, so the kids don't leave for middle school until 7th grade. That gives them an extra year sort of 'in the nest' before going on to Westland Middle School(6-8), which I have heard great things about, but would'nt we all like to postpone that MS experience.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Maryland used the Maryland School Assessment (MSA) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The MSA is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Maryland. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
