School Reviews

This is our first year at Nashville Christian. We moved from out of state and, as soon as we visited the school, we had no doubt that it was where we wanted to be. We were impressed with the curriculum and the focus on values and principles. But the thing that has stood out the most to us is the spirit. There is a joyfulness here that starts at the very top and pervades the entire place, all the way down to the kids and the parents. We have a kindergartner and a 4th grader and we''ll be here until our kindergartner graduates high school.

Nashville Christian has given our children an opportunity to learn and grow not just in an academic setting, but spiritually, athletically, and through extra-curricular activities. Teachers at NCS have invested in our children?''s lives. We have only attended for two years and have experienced the teachers, staff and coaches to be supportive, encouraging, available, understanding and kind. I also love that NCS welcomes parental involvement on any level. I believe Nashville Christian will help prepare my kids for college and most importantly give them a foundation for helping and serving others.
