Before I came to NCCS Ihated school. The first day I came I was stunned by how they started the day. Then how they went through the day! I immediately loved coming to school everyday. I learned so much above just my education, like how to shake hands properly andhow to be respectful during the Pledge of Allegiance and National Anthem. Overall my short time at NCCS made me a better person. NCCS made me come out of my shell, which has made me be able to open up to people and have the confidence to do that. I love coming back to visit because I always learn something new!

To me NCCS means family. NCCS is a great school. I was only there for a year and it felt like I was there for so long. The staff and teachers are so loving and caring. The teachers always say they are not there to be your friend but to me they are. The students are the best. They are always so joyful and polite. When you are having a bad day, they are always there for you. NCCS is a great school. They taught me how to be respectful, humble, how to have balance and most of all how to be kind.
