My son started with this school about 6 months ago at the toddler/pre-school level. So far it has been a great experience for us! Very quickly we could tell he enjoyed going to school each day and the morning drop-offs have always been very smooth thanks to the teachers and friendly staff. Each week the teachers send home pictures showing how the time in class is spent, so we always have a clear understanding of what our son is learning. We have also noticed a signficant improvement in his language skills. I don't see any reason why we wouldn't continue at this school in the future.

My daughter just started at NCS after being at her old school since she was in the woddler room. The staff and teachers have all been wonderful in making this transition as smooth as possible and to help her feel like she is welcomed in her new school. Ms. Linda in the morning has been a blessing to both me and my daugther as we are met each morning with a smile and open arms for my daughter. I feel confident when I leave that she is in good hands. Her teacher Ms. Lisa is amazing! In just the few weeks we've been here she has learned so much. Everyone at NCS is wonderful and most helpful!

My daughter has gone to NCS since preschool, and I am sad that this will be her last year at the school (1st grade is as high as they go!) She went from a non-reader to a gifted reaser and speller in only a few months with Ms. Taylor, and we have been very pleased with their respect of our non-traditional religious views (no birthdays etc.) THe treat each child as an individual and help them along at their own pace. I will be sad to have to move to another school next year.

NCS is a fantastic school and I'm sorry they don't go to 6th grade! The main Kindergarten teacher has over 20 years of experience and all of the staff is outstanding. Kids get over an hour of exercise every day even when raining due to covered play decks and also get music, Spanish, and computer time twice a week. Monthly field trips and two trips a month to the library round out the 'fun' stuff. My daughter has developed excellent social and negotiating skills while learning to read, add, subtract, multiply and so many other skills that put her ahead of her public-school peers. The kids are encouraged, not pushed, and I think the 11:1 ratio (vs. 18:1 at the nearby elementary) really does matter. Parents are as involved as they like and many of us spend time at the school every week. A++

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
