I feel that my son was discriminated against because he possibly has a learning disability.I feel that the teacher that was assigned to him was not prepared, academically, for a child who has a hard time learning nor did she want to deal with his poor scores and evaluation.I am a very active parent. Immediately, after being told that he was not on the same level as the other 12 students, I consulted my mom (19 yrs of experience as a K5 educator), his pediatrician, and a child psychologist.I was put on the right path for getting him tested but he was wait listed.The beginning of this nightmare was when I received a letter from his teacher stating that he is a distraction (when one is not engaged one becomes bored and seeks attention).The last straw was when we received some other childs report card on a Thursday that was to be signed and returned on Friday.Not only was that childs privacy breached but possibly so was my childs.When I requested a meeting with the teacher and her superior I received a personal email at 8:51 am (when she should be teaching) not offering me a time for a meeting but stating that my childs report card was on her desk which I feel was an out right lie.
Northside is a very caring and challenging school. They have a good lunch program, sports, fine arts and our favorite..piano lessons! I have 6 years experience with my children enrolled there. I would recommend Northside.
Northside Christian is a great school with teachers who work overtime to make sure a child is getting all he/she needs. the academics are tough and are in accordance with ALL standards of education. The student to teacher ratio is excellent in most situations and I give it a 5+ rating. thanks Northside for loving my child!
We are a military family that tried public schools our first year in Charleston. The second year we chose NCS and were so glad we did. The entire lower school was very welcoming and caring. Both our boys were challenged academically. The entire staff was wonderful; excellent fine arts program.
