NCS has truly been a blessing to our family. The teachers are top notch and make learning fun for the students. The entire staff from teachers, administrators, coaches, custodial staff, etc. sincerely love the students and want only the best for them. My family has made wonderful friendships because of NCS as well. NCS is more than a school, it's a family!

We love North Christian School. We currently have our 2 kids going there and they are excelling in their grades. North has small class sizes and they are a smaller school if you are looking for a smaller school. The teachers are all certified teachers and take joy in teaching each and every student. It's neat to see teachers from other grades calling all the students by their names. It is a close knit community within the school. North offers Music and Technology one day a week and Gym class three times a week. Students from 3 year olds through middle school go to Spanish one day a week and there is a school choir that is offered to kids in grades 3-5th. The school also offers clubs after school. Some clubs you might see at North are dance, drama, community service, basketball, soccer, baseball/softball, lego, board games, guitar, chess, recycling, etc. The school also plays basketball, cheerleading and track with Wood County Schools. North also participates in Social Studies Fair, Science Fair, Speech Meet, and Spelling Bee. My favorite part about North is the Christ-centered education that my kids receive each and every day. I love that they pray as a student body at the beginning of each day, they are taking Bible class and their curriculum is Christ-centered. Students also meet once a week for Chapel.

How Diverse Are Private Schools?
Decades ago private schools could have been accused of being elitist. You had to have money to attend. The student populations were fairly homogeneous. Fortunately that has changed.
