Open Quote My daughter has been to her share of schools and this is her 5th school in 8 years of schooling. She has now been at NCMS for a full year (2 grades, since she came in the middle of the school year last year) and I have been nothing but impressed. My daughter has gone to a private school, a charter school and public schools in PA and in GA. I was immediately wowed because of the schools boating certification program in the 6th grade, where students are taken to the Redland HS and later to the Pinchot park and if they put the effort in, and pass the test, they receive a certification. Very few schools would take on the extra work required to make such seemingly unnecessary programs work, but our school did. The teachers have been great. I had not one but two teachers reach out to me last year, just to say what a pleasure it has been to have my daughter in their class. That takes time and it was completely unnecessary and I appreciate that. I've also had random emails this year from teachers letting us know what large assignments are due. These are just one-liners but do they do the job, and again, I appreciate it because it takes time and that little extra step that a lot of teachers may not bother to do. We've also been fortunate to get a new Principal and Vice Principal and the kids were excited, my daughter said all the other schools in the area wanted them for their principal. Every day they happily greet the kids in the morning outside and help guide traffic in the rain-sleet-snow. Again, I appreciate that! The students that I have had a pleasure to meet have also been great. They're friendly, down to earth and respectful. I know their parents have raised them well. I've heard other negative stories, especially when we first moved here. I can't tell you how many people warned me about NCMS and how many parents that I talked to who feared sending their kids here! No doubt there's room for improvement but I believe that the negative stories you hear are the exceptions and not the rule. Take note to who has written all of the previous reviews, they are mostly just kids. I think a little appreciation and positivity can go a long way in regarding one's school so I decided to share my thoughts. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
