Both of my sons attend school here and we love the atmosphere, teachers, and staff. My 5-year-old has been diagnosed with ADHD and social anxiety and is possibly on the spectrum and every single one of the faculty members has helped in through some of the most difficult days and struggles. Both my children love their classes. I especially am happy to know that their friends will continue to move forward with them in the upcoming years. We really enjoy the advancements and hard work that go into making this school one of the best!

North Christian School I feel like is the best school for my child. Not only do they make sure they are safe-fed and learning all the right things. You can see and feel how much that time they take for each child. To where you know they aren't left out, that they are loved. That they feel apart of the class and feel important. Especially if your child is more in the shy or quiet side. They still feel heard. It's a loving Christian environment. Learning about God is important and knowing your child is getting the education they need to succeed plus learning about God is such a blessing. The teachers are a God send. You can't go wrong with this school. They care and you see it. They give one on one time so your kid doesn't fall behind if they're struggling a little on their work. I would recommend this school to everyone wanting a Christian education. My personal opinion public school just wouldn't be the right fit for my daughter but this school definitely is. 10/10.

There is NO OTHER school that compares to North. We've had students attend for the past six years, and currently have four of our children at NCS. They are the real deal when it comes to providing a solid, Christian education that accompanies excellence in academics. We love the staff and they truly love our children!

When I was retiring from the military and moving my family back home (Belpre), a great school was high on my prayer concerns for our children. Oh boy did God deliver with North Christian School! A Christ-centered family is the best way to explain it. My Child has brought me to tears telling me about the things they learn in the Bible. The biblical teachings spill over into how my child lives in his day-to-day life. I see evidence of this in the way he acts socially in the community, at sporting events, and other things. You can definitely tell there's something different about him, and I know where it comes from. It is not all from the way we live at home. Academically, my child is more advanced because of this school than other members of our family of the same age who attend public schools. He even asked if he could go to school on weekends. He loves it so much. When I drop off my child at North, I feel like I have placed him directly into the hands of people who genuinely love Jesus.

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.
