    Northside Christian School excels at caring for students and guiding them through tough academics all the way to college. Throughout my child's time there, he has had outstanding teachers who help him any way they can. These teachers are well trained, engaging, and challenging. The school also has a unique program to help students who learn differently go to college.

    The school has one of the top music programs in the state of Florida, with the marching band winning the state championship three times in a row and inducting the fine arts director into the state band hall of fame. Students receive vocal and instrumental instruction from the school and put on a yearly musical that rivals many professional performances.

    Almost all students are involved in extracurricular activities that range from Lacrosse to swimming, guard to Chambers singers. Students are so active in that it's not uncommon to be at a football game and see one of the players run to play in the band during halftime!

    My son attended NCS from 8th grade through his graduation. What a difference the caring and professional teachers have us in his life! He went from struggling to pass at his former school to all A’s and B’s in a challenging curriculum because of the support of teachers who truly care about supporting students of all kinds. He had incredible encouragement and support from his track coaches Barry Greenleaf and Jeff Goodwin. The school has taken measures to improve security such as a secure gate with capable guards, key card entry for all doorways, and increased communication and lockdown training for teachers and staff. Most importantly, the message of Jesus Christ is taught lived out by faculty who do not force salvation upon anyone, but provide an open door of peace and love offered freely. Northside Christian School is wonderful school in every aspect.
    I love teaching at Northside Christian! I've been here for 27 years. It truly is a family. Each student is truly cared for, and I love the freedom I have to teach about my faith. I am still personally in contact with hundreds of alumni. Our graduates have gone on to Harvard, the service academies, medical schools, state and local politics, the ministry, Grammy-nominated musicians and professional opera singers/members of renowned orchestras, journalism and television news... There really is no limit to what an NCS grad can do, except their imagination!
