North Georgia Christian School is a great fit for our family! Our oldest son attended NGCS (then called Westminster) for Kindergarten. Karen Hoh was his teacher - is still there - and is exceptional! He then attended two christian prep academies through the end of 7th grade. At both schools the administration
... Read more kept raising the tuition 10-20% per year, and kept increasing the academic and disciplinary expectations to the point that the stress on our son to meet the bar was affecting him negatively - taking all the joy out of being a child. I was a member of the Board at the 2nd school and the insight I received taught me to be wary of ego-driven motives of school administrations. NGCS successfully monitors the changes they implement in all areas! NGCS provides a challenging education with real christian principles at the core. NGCS administrators and teachers "walk the talk", preparing our children for success guided by Christ. The school is guided by Carol Cox, the most sincere, experienced and child-focused administrator I have encountered yet. I always feel welcome on campus, my son is happy and thriving, and we are sending our youngest to first grade there next year. Read less

I am sad to see what the board has done to our wonderful school. It seems as though they are determined to run this school into the ground. While enrollment has steadily declined over the past few years, the board continues to push the idea of building new facilities. They have broken away from the

Instead of concentrating on improving what already exsists the focus is on expanding into something else, no matter the cost. It is irresponsible and quite sad to see the school board run this school into the ground. Shame, shame. Read less

My oldest child is a graduate of WCS (attended 3rd-12th grades). I have found that she was very well prepared for college! I still have 2 children in the school, and I am so blessed to have them there. Not only are they being prepared academically, but I am grateful that they have aquired spiritual discernment.

I was very discouraged by the comments made about this school. It strives and achieves academic excellence. Its SAT scores prove it! I love that WCS does not prepare for CRCT/SAT testing the whole year. No school is perfect. Every school has something to work on. If you come to WCS/NGCS, it should not

We have attended school at WCS for 8 years. I am excitd at the changes and growth that we have been blessed to witness at WCS.

We have been at WCS for two years and have been pleased with the education of our child. We are very excited about the new Head of School, Scott Smith, and believe that he is the man God has placed to turn things around. We have thought about placing our child in public school but believe that WCS
