Overall a great school! Need more diversity and inclusion. Clean ffers expanded information about important aspects of school quality — including student access to advanced courses, student progress information, and equity data to help parents see whether or not all students are being served similarly parents across the country can use to support their children’s education and take action to improve their local schools. We’re incorporating this rich data to ensure that our school ratings reflect factors that we know are important to parents and that research shows are connected to students’ success in college and life.

Although LNC has a positive reputation as a productive learning environment, this school ruined my mental health by making academics competitive. LNC makes a sport out of which student can be the most "successful" and by successful they mean exhausted and overworked. They encourage students (especially upperclassmen) to take a full load of AP courses, play a sport (or two), join and lead clubs, and participate in honors societies. Students I was close with had mental health problems develop ver the course of their time there (especially depression and anxiety) but continued on the same rigorous schedule as the year before. We might have graduated wit good grade, but I can decisively say it wasn't worth it.
This is my first year attending LNC and so far it has been very good. This year due to the pandemic many schools including mine have been making the change from going to school to going fully remote. Lake Norman Charter has made this difficult change to become easy for students. Everything is on one website (Schoology) and very organized. I know exactly what to do and when it is due. All of my teacher that I have at LNC are very understanding and have no problem helping you, you can tell that the teacher want to teach. Every week they set a day aside so that we can catch up, get free counseling, and tutoring. They understand that online learning is not for everyone and I believe that they are doing everything they can to make those children more comfortable and understand the curriculum.
