This is an excellent school! The staff is amazing, I drive 8 miles past 3 schools to take my daughter there! There is little parent involvement but that is not the teachers' fault.

I love this school. I am a parent of 2 who attend. I love the entire staff. Everyone is so helpful and great. I really could not have asked for a better school. And the principal & secretary are amazing.

As a parent first and educator second, my husband and I feel that North Clinton is an exceptional school. Our two oldest sons attended kindergarten through sixth grade, and out youngest son attends NCES presently. We paid tuition to attend because we felt so stronly about the school and its staff. The individual attention that students receive is without a doubt one of its greatest assets. We love the smaller atmosphere and the many incentives offered to the students. Teachers offer afterschool classes in Computer, Math, Reading and Language Arts. The high expectations set by the staff and teachers definitely foster a challenging, but successful educational experience for students. Our sons were/are very happy at NCES. Even when given the chance to attend another school after moving, they wished to stay at NCES. A visit to NCES easily confirms its many wonderful aspects and its faculty. A true A+ school.

North Clinton is alright. (nothing to brag about) The school needs some improvement starting with 'prejudice first'. All students and Parents should be treated equally regardles of race, creed, or color. North Clinton does not offer any extended help to the students, meaning tutoring assistance, after school help or extra-time with students to make sure that they know the work and really understand it. North Clinton does not reward Blacks. My daughter has been a excellent student all year with improvement in her grades,attitude and performance. She is well manored and respectful. When I read the Clinton Courier for students of the month. I have not seen her face or name in their at all. If we are going to encourage students to do there best. Reward all that deserves to be rewarded. My daughter works hard and see no reward. Only the one that comes from her Mom.

I feel this is a great school. My child has attended schools in Anderson County and over all, this is quite the best one. One-on-one teaching is excellent! A+

this is a great school. I went their when i was in the 5th grade. My math teacher worked with me one-on-one to help me leard and understand divison and to this day i am very thankful...and their reading program is a two thumbs up!!! this really is a wonderful school.the school its self is small and can only have about 2oo students which gives the principal a chance to get to know each student and talk with them about their past present and future. She is very sweet and understanding. and thanks for being such a great school.....
