Enrich the Student Experience

A supportive network of classmates, faculty, staff, and parents encourages each NCS student to realize her individual potential in a community of engaged learners. Faculty and staff support each student’s learning and growth with kindness and by providing the tools and space to offer her best. Teachers and students forge strong bonds of mutual respect through the passionate exchange of ideas. While NCS provides a challenging academic environment, we also promote physical, emotional, spiritual, and social well-being through the development of healthy habits. Through her education here, an NCS student prepares for a lifetime of possibilities.
To enrich the student experience, we will pursue the following actions over the next five years:
