Handles bullying effectively: Strongly disagree


- a
NCS' opinion regarding bullying issues is the "kids will be kids."



- a
The academics at NCS are sub-standard. If you are interested in your child/ren merely memorizing and regurgitating information, this is the school for you. If, however, you are looking for an academically challenging curriculum, look elsewhere. More troublesome is the lack of Christian values imparted NCS. There is absolutely no discipline at this school. The children are rude and disrespectful. They lie, cheat, and steal. If they are caught misbehaving, and that's a big IF, they are only required to apologize and ask for forgiveness, regardless of the infraction. The students are not learning that they are consequences for their actions. The majority of the staff talks the talk and but does not walk the walk. The teachers are lazy and unresponsive. They come by it honestly as the administration is wholly unresponsive to parents' concerns as well and outright lies. NCS is run by nepotism; if it is a family, the best way to describe its hiring practices is incestuous. The number of students who have parents who work at the school and attendant problems that causes with the lack of discipline and academics means NCS will never rise above mediocrity. While there are a few good teachers scattered throughout the school (upper and lower), they do not justify the tuition. Even if this school were free, it would be a waste of your and your child/ren's time. I would ask you to inquire about the decline in enrollment, but the administration would lie to you as it does to the current parents.


Teacher effectiveness: Neutral


- a
Teachers are loving and genuinely care about the children. Unfortunately, several wonderful teachers have left b/c of the poor leadership displayed by Mrs. DeMik.

Develops character: Strongly disagree


- a
These qualities are not being displayed by the leader of the school. The students do not have a positive example to role model.



- a
The Principal at the elementary campus in Norfolk has ruined the school. Since her arrival 2.5 years ago, over 20 staff/faculty members have either resigned or been forced out. The Principal is a narcissist who will step over people and compromise the school's values and integrity for her own selfish gain. She is driven by enrollment numbers and tuition and makes decisions based on that, rather than what is best for the students. One of my children did not have a teacher for most of last year. The teacher walked out in October and was not replaced until late in February. I did not pay thousands of dollars in tuition for my child to be educated by a line of substitute teachers. The school is definitely not worth the cost. They are trying to compete with the top of the line private schools in the area, and fall very short. Classroom equipment is falling apart, the internet network can not support the size of the school, wonderful teachers with vast experience have been replaced by inexperienced teachers straight out of school. Incredibly disappointed by my experience with NCS. My children will not be returning to this toxic environment


Teacher effectiveness: Agree


- a
My daughter had attended Norfolk Christian since she was in first grade. She is entering 6th grade this year and we have had a wonderful experience thus far. NCS is so much more than a school...it is more like a family. The teachers treat the children with love and respect and work to discover and celebrate each child's unique skills and talents. The environment is nurturing and my daughter is thriving. I consider my tuition money well spent as my daughter is learning in an environment that is supportive, builds her character as well as her knowledge, and is free from some of the distractions in other schools (bullying, fighting, drugs, etc.).

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
Biblical teachings and character development are an integral part of the educational experience. Students are expected to be respectful to one another and to demonstrate positve character traits in their words and actions.



- a
My daughter, who is 11 and entering 6th grade, has been at Norfolk Christian since 1st grade. During that time Norfolk Christian has been much more than a school to us. The teachers and faculty treat the children with love and respect and we have never had an issue with the children mistreating each other. Character development, knowledge of God's word and a solid academic underpinning make Norfolk Christian a wonderful place for my child to grow, learn and thrive!




- a
A college prep level education with a Christian world view. NCS has been a perfect fit for me, my wife and my children. My children are well prepared for college and for life; academically, physically and spiritually. The children's maturity and grounding in the Lord has developed far beyond my expectations largely as a result of the education that they have received at Norfolk Christian Schools.



- a
I have two daughters that attend Norfolk Christian and they both love it. One of the best things about the school is the dedication of the teachers. They are amazing and are completely dedicated to helping the kids receive an excellent education in a Christian environment. We as parents feel a great sense of community throughout the school and feel like there is no better place that our kids could be at school. Check it out, it really is a great place for your kids!
