Overall, I couldn’t ask for a better experiences for my two children. Throughout there academic careers they have been challenged. Additionally, the social aspects of daily school life are healthy and enjoyable. My kids love NCS!

North Cross has excellent academics and the teachers truly care about their students. Small class sizes mean children can't slip through the cracks, and each child is recognized and supported. The school fosters a love of learning and pushes students to contribute outside of the classroom as well. With the new 16 million dollar renovation the physical spaces on campus now match the stellar quality academic work being done. It is expensive, and we have to sacrifice as a family to send our kids, but I can't think of a more important investment for their future. I couldn't be more pleased as a parent- my two children are happy and thriving.
Lower School is great, Middle School is good, but the Upper School Administration and Headmaster need to be dismissed. Also, they have a man shoving BS down the throats of everyone there to further diversity. If you have a problem with this man, don’t go to Administration, as they let him lie about the past and present to further the school’s future. Title IX doesn't exist for young women. The boys (and they are boys) cause trouble but get all the assistance they need. The public speaking project in the Senior year that the school likes to go on about is a cruel joke. As a former Forensics State Champion for three years, these poor kids need help writing and presenting their speeches. Those that do well have very obviously been assisted by an adult. The subject matter and the words conveyed are not that of a high school student. They are barely that of a underclassmen in college.
