The academic leadership from the Principal is very poor. There are a few poor teachers that give out nothing but worksheets from teachers resource book. Other teachers are excellent and highly motivated focused on student outcomes. Much better than area public school on discipline, student outcomes and overall character of the student. Extra curricular sports and musical are very good. Excellent support from parents.
I'm a student and I love the school, class sizes are small so you get a lot of one-on-one with the teachers. Also, people in NCCS are like your second family and their always there for you and support you. As far as the teachers go they have replaced a good number of them. The classes can be difficult and you need to study hard, I won a scholarship there and I'm very school involved. Awsome faculty and parents.
We love our school. Discipline is excellent, curriculum is challenging and appropriate (as for other reviewer who said a child fell three years behind- this school is not set up for special needs kids. Too small.) I'm assuming this is a special needs child because the teachers are outstanding about providing help when needed. Spanish (from native speaker), computers, art, music, PE are offered from Pre-K on!
