6/25/2011parentWe switched our children to this school instead of a local school and it was the best decision we ever made concerning our children's education. They were taught by a 3-4 grade Master teacher and made significant gains academically, especialy in the core subject of ELA regarding reading and learning how to write a variety of reports and responses. The consistency, high expectations, structure, leadership, dedicated teaching and overall warm school environment at NCS shows! No school is perfect, all schools have "politics" but at NCS, the students' needs come first. It is night and day between the local school and NCS regarding teachers' union philosophy, BOE lack of support and weak leadership . NCS is the best "hidden secret in the Adirondacks!
11/8/2010parentSchool seems to aim for being OK and it is. Just that. Would hope for more individualized instruction in such a small school. As previously mentioned, not much for the gifted student and not enough for the really challenged. School seems to lack academic leadership.
10/18/2010otherWith a 4 to 1 Student to Teacher ratio the teachers should have all the time in the world to advance gifted children and give the stuggling student all the help needed.
11/7/2008parentAll elementary grade levels are combined classes and with the increase in state requirements teachers do not have enough needed time to spend on a single grade level. If a student is above average - no incentives and student easily gets bored, if a student is below, not much time for extra help. Not fair for students or teachers.
