HISTORY

“My father was the founding chairman of the board at NCS. I’ve seen the school grow tremendously. People now see it as a place where whatever and whoever their child wants to be can be explored and grown -- whether that’s in athletics, academics, or a safe place to belong and experience community in its entirety.” 

Donna Hais, former NCS student & parent
