Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a parent
The teachers at NCS are top notch. They push our children academically but are also quick to pick up on signs of a child struggling with a certain topic or assignment.

Amount of homework: Agree


- a parent
NCS has done a great job of issuing homework that is meaningful and promotes learning without just being "busy work". They also do a wonderful job of not overwhelming students with homework to help them maintain a school and home life balance.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a parent
NCS is a family. The whole organization does an incredible job of fostering honesty and integrity within that family.




- a parent
The leaders, teachers, and staff go above and beyond every single day when working with our Children. They know the children there as individuals and work to develop each student based on his/her talents and/or needs.



- a parent
Sending our son to NCS has been the best decision we ever made. The staff, teachers and coaches truly care about each child there.

Parent of three at NCS for many years. My children are being transformed in God likeness in part by the efforts of teachers. Thank You.

As a Nashville native, I'm familiar with the private and public schools in the Nashville area, but I didn't know about Nashville Christian School until 2012. My three children now attend NCS and have unique strengths and challenges. NCS successfully customized educational needs for my overachiever by enabling her to attend a couple of Honors classes in High School as a Middle School student. As a Freshman, she is currently taking Honors, AP, and Dual Enrollment classes. She works hard, but still has time to be a child and find time to relax and enjoy life. My son with physical and learning disabilities is free of bullying for the first time in years! Bullying exists in every school, but NCS handles such issues with swift and appropriate action involving both students and parents alike. Teachers build his confidence and encourage him to advocate for himself when he needs help. Exceptional Fine Arts, Theatre, and after school clubs provide opportunities for non-athletes to build friendships and gain confidence in their unique abilities. The diverse student body at NCS reflects the various cultures, ethnicities, and uniqueness in our society. All three of my children are academically challenged, without being buried under a mountain of homework every night. They still have time to relax and enjoy life outside of school. NCS students learn to be intelligent, free thinking, well rounded citizens in a supportive, relaxed environment. No school is perfect, but this one is truly Nashville's hidden gem.

Teacher effectiveness: Agree

Most of the teachers are excellent. The Middle School teachers engage their students and inspire them to love learning and respect each other. The only teacher that isn't excellent is the Middle School History teacher. He teaches the children to memorize facts, instead of inspiring a love of History. It's a shame, but he does the best he can. In High School, almost every teacher is excellent. Mrs. Harper (English), Mr. Carlucci (History & Psychology), Mrs. Shivers (Physics), Mrs. Hinds-Brown (AP Human Geography & Economics) are among the favorites. My children enjoy learning and actually look forward to future lessons. My only complaints in High School are the Biology and Chemistry teachers. The Biology teacher is an MD who teaches at the University level. She's brilliant, but teaches the children as if they've already mastered the basics of Biology. They're learning at the University level! It's too stressful, though. The Chemistry teacher is very young and has a hard time staying on track. She frequently gets distracted. Her students end up teaching themselves.
