This school has a wonderful program. I think that it's preparing our teens for the future and and the work environment. My daughter has become more responsible and I don't even have to wake her in the mornings for school or work. I would like to see more sports incorporated into the school. eg swimming and tennis. I would recommend this school.

At first i enjoyed the school and the work program but then i realized that since college acceptances are beocming more competitive i need more sports and ncc does not offer that many sports such as cheerleading, Gymnastins, tennis, track, etc therefore i dont really reccommend it.

NCC is a great school. Not only do go to school but you get to work. The school gives the students a job in a field where they want to work. So the student gets a better understanding of the field or a better understanding where they would like to work one day. Also the jobs they give the students are professional type jobs. The school also does a great job in preparing the student for college. The get to learn a great deal from the teachers.The school also has a lot of clubs and if they don't have it you can create it. The students at the are not only getting ready for college but also getting ready for life.

This is a great place! All of my kids have come to this school! All of the teachers are really supportive and the kids are really dedicated to making something of themselves. The work program has been a great experience for my kids. I highly recommend!

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
