I honestly love my school. I love every single one of my classmates, and I'm incredibly happy to have spent the last 6 years at NCDS. The community is really the best part of the school, and the sisterhood you form with the rest of your grade (and the school, really) is so unique and special. Although the teachers can be somewhat hit-and-miss, there are plenty of excellent teachers (Dr. Tam, who has retired, Mr. Adair, Mr. Szilvasy, Ms. Krier, Ms. Rock, Ms. Tyler to name a few!) that are always around after to school to help. The resources at Newton are amazing, and I've made great relationships with my teachers. The college guidance office is also great, and because of the small nature of the class sizes, you get personalized and one-on-one time with the CG officers, and they get to know you quite well! Overall, amazing experience and I wouldn't trade it for the world.

I attended NCDS from 7-12th grade. My experience can be characterized by a mix of good and bad experiences. This school is very academically rigorous. There was never a shortage of homework, but there is a large support system for you if you are willing to reach out. The teachers are very invested in every student and their performance. One of my favorite things about NCDS is the teacher relationships I formed. Having teachers you can lean on and complain to is oddly one of the best and most comforting things about being a student there.
On the other hand, NCDS has a major lack of diversity. The faculty is almost 100% white and the student body also lacks diversity. Additionally, the teachers are not trained on how to handle racially charged situations and this often left students like me to handle it alone. I know the school is working on diversity but they need to work fast because their students of color are the ones who pay for the disparity.
NCDS has been my favorite place in the world every year I've been here. It is academically challenging, encouraging, and supportive. NCDS really has taught me to think critically, be thoughtful when approaching any situation or assignment, and care for others wherever I go. Courage and Confidence has always been our motto, and NCDS has taught me this well--when I first came in 6th grade, I did not speak, I barely participated, and I never answered a question unless I was beyond positive I new the correct answer. That was seven years ago. I now lead my classes in discussions, ask thought-provoking questions constantly, and am unafraid to take risks when I speak. The possibility of saying something incorrect is no longer a fear of mine. I have always been unequivocally myself, but because of my community here over the years I have shed the shell I've worn through my young life layer by layer until I became the confident and compassionate person I am today.
