This has been the greatest school for my children and grandchildren. It has given them a sense of worth, independence and self confidence as well as educating them so that they became good citizens and responsible adults.

This school uses an integrated arts curriculum that weaves all subjects into one creative project. It helps kids to see the wholeness of things. A positive feedback approach to behavior modification encourages kids to want to be recognized for what they are doing right.

Because it's a great school. My grandchild was able to read before he got to first grade. He is in the second grade and is ready the Hardy Boys book series and has been sine last summer. That some heavy ready by a 7 year old. Keep up the good work.


Posted May 6, 2010

This school exemplifies community spirit and support, nurtures each child's individual achievements, and accents and integrates the arts in each program. The gift of performing in front of a group of supportive peers is a gift to a child's self worth that will benifit each child for a lifetime. Thank you, all of NBCS staff on every level, volunteers and parents for supporting your school!
