The administration has taken specific campus security measures on both the elementary and secondary campuses. Security guards at both campuses and automatic security gates at the secondary campus have been a welcomed improvement. The board and administrators seem to be listening to their constituents and are making some changes in security, staff and the Bible curriculum.
This place is basically a rip off, Poor administrative leadership + poor teachers = a waste of your childrens potential
Our student is a high schooler at Northland and we are very pleased. There is not a perfect school out there, but Northland is very, very good. We love the racial diversity, the strong staff, and the Christian focus. We have a realistic view of high school and know that we will not absolutely love every instructor or every thing about the school. And just because it's a Christian school doesn't mean every student will be Christian. We understand that and don't expect unrealistic results. But honestly, there is very little that we have been disappointed in. We have no experience with their middle or elementary school, but can definitely recommend the High School as a great place for kids to go to school.
I have been a student at NCS since I was 5 years old to 14. I just switched to a public school because of racism. Basically, parents. If you are not white, you are not welcome. As being Middle Eastern(only one on my grade) I was constantly called racial slurs such as "terrorist" or "bomber" A teacher even made a remark to me as looking like the Boston Bomber in early 2013. Its Unbelievable. Do Not enroll you're child in this school. About Christianity? Forget it. The language used by the students AND the teachers are worse than a public school. The School, by the way is extremely greedy.
As a parent I couldn't ask for a better a school for my children. The teachers and staff are one of a kind. Not only are my children being prepared for the academic rigors of college they are being prepared to be Godly young men and women, to be Godly mothers and fathers, and to be Godly husbands and wives. Each day when I drop my children off I know that they are safe and loved. Northland is a true blessing to our family!
I'm new to the school, but have seen some major changes in the short time I've been there. Some phenomenal new teachers, revamped curriculum, an athletic program that is arguably one of the best of its size in the state, and a global focus that is hard to beat. Good things are happening!
The staff needs training on how to meet the needs of all learners. The school promotes retention so they can get an additional year of tuition from you instead of trying to put interventions in place to help your child be successful!
Northland is a waste of money. There is little adminstrative oversight and the level of prepatory education is minimal.
NCS has horrible security measures. There is gang graffiti on the walls and there have been several auto burglaries recently. Where is my increase in tuition going? It is certainly not being used for the security of the children.
A great school where God is growing in the lives of parents, students and teachers!
As a career public school teacher, I looked far and wide for a quality educational environment for my own children. Northland Christian School has an excellent balance of quality academics and Christian values. I have been extremely pleased with the class sizes and quality of the educators working with my kids. My children have thrived in this environment!
Privacy laws govern the investigation and resolution of any incident reported on a school campus. Administrators at Northland Christian School by policy and practice act responsibly when responding to any report that might be a danger to students, faculty or staff. Every report is carefully considered for an appropriate resolution. Character counts at Northland!
Outstanding! My children have attended this school for 11 years, and we love it! While every school has its rough spots/moments, Northland shows excellence overall. The student/teacher ratio is low, Christian values are taught and modeled, students' individual gifts are celebrated, and academics is a focus. Lots of extra-curricular activities are also offered. The majority of families are dual-income and the atmosphere is not "snobby" as I've seen in other places. It is truly like sending your child to school with their extended family. Tuition is mid-range among other creditable options in the Houston area.
Have not been pleased with the school. Our daughter attended there for 2 years, pre-school 2 both years. Even though she is advanced they held her back and made her repeat the 2yr. old class. This caused numerous behavior problems of which we were never told about until March! We were never contacted when she was removed from the classroom, etc. Then they tried to blame it on us as parents, hinting that we had somehow abused our daughter to cause her to act up in class. They told us the night of Welcome back to school/open house that our daughter was not going to be allowed back to school which left us 12 hours to find a new school before the year started. Complete lack of communication on all fronts! Teachers are nice, but not firm enough with the kids at a young age; they basically let the kids run the room. And they don't like you if you have both parents working. The finacial office numerous times humiliated us because both of us worked and we had to sign our daughter up for extended care. Great curriculm, but that's it.
We have been with Northland from K-5th and our child has received an excellent education in a calm, warm, loving environment. We are looking forward to moving to the secondary campus for middle school next year. Our daughter has received many opportunities to participate in music, stage, and class room presentations which allow the children to develop a comfort in their presentation skills in front of people. In addition in areas where she excels they have provided her the opportunity to improve at her own pace. We have had a positive experience and enjoyed the relationships we developed with the quality children, parents and staff at Northland..
We have already moved one child back to public school at the end of last year and are anticipating doing the same with another at the end of the school year. The reasons for this are simple: the school lacks the cohesive disciplined leadership or focus required to move to a level commensurate with the cost being charged for tuition.
Northland Christian School illustrates what few christian, college preparatory schools do, a balance of both the spiritual and academic areas of growth. While far from the Utopian ideal of a school, the focus on keeping the academics rigorous, the teachers advanced, and the options for students far ranging and diverse allows for an overall experience that can not be duplicated by either a public or other private school. From experience with several different levels and kinds of school, I must admit that I wouldn't want to spend my years of formal education anywhere else than at NCS and with the family that only resides within its confines.
Coming to the conclusion of this year, Northland Christian School is good in the quality of education given. NCS has a variety of extra-curricular activites. NCS just recently earned a 3rd place sweepstakes award at the Texas Christian Schools Interscholastic Tournament in Abilene for middle school and a 2nd place sweepstakes award in high school. Overall, the school should improve on several departments especially the history, science, and fine arts department. They have a well-rounded staff with a good laptop program.
I looked at several private schools and NCS was by far the best choice. My kids are getting a great education and the teachers are constantly challenging them to do their best. The students do not just study the bible, they are learning good morals and values that will be with them forever. They are being educated in an environment where everyone is treated with kindness and respect. The school has an 'open door' policy, where parents are encouraged to visit the classrooms. The school really is one big family.
2007-2008 is our 5th year at Northland Christian School.The school offers all sport activities as public school would, so the students have all the perks of public school in a small Christian environment. Teacher/Parent communication is wonderful. Parents can look at assignments and grades on the website, as well as communicate with teachers by email.
