College begins in Kindergarten…and affordable quality education begins at NHCS!! The educational foundation that children receive in the first years of school may determine how well they do later in college. Our students receive an excellent preparatory program designed to excite and encourage individual success. Most of our students test far above national averages.
Our accrediting organizations (AdvancED, AACS, and TACS) offer the opportunity to compare our student’s progress to other advanced curriculum schools. Each year, NHCS evaluates the results to ensure our classroom materials are providing our students the best learning potential For this reason, NHCS uses a combination of materials that promotes advanced learning in a structured teaching atmosphere. The A Beka and Bob Jones curriculum is the primary source of elementary materials. In addition, the following materials have been implemented:
- Bible – Positive Action for Christ
- English – Expert English
- Math – Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
The learning atmosphere at NHCS is controlled and structured. Our classrooms are equipped with computers, surround-sound systems, ceiling-mounted projectors, and document cameras/scanners to help students in their learning process. To help protect our students, the facility is secured by magnetic-locked doors with multiple security cameras recording. Guest must be paged in the front entrance by our administrative offices. Protecting our students on campus is high priority for our administration.
Students are taught to respect each other and authority by conforming to standard classroom rules. Some of these rules include:
- Learning to play/work with peers
- Learning to be silent when necessary
- Learning to walk in organized lines to and from the classroom
- Learning respect towards adults by addressing them properly i.e.“Yes, ma’am/No sir”
- Learning to raise their hand when they have a question
These foundational rules in our program create disciplined students ready for educational success. NHCS faculty helps each student achieve their personal best through caring classroom control. Classroom rules are reinforced by a system of positive/negative discipline system. Each student begins every day with a clean slate. After adequate reminders and warnings, a student may lose a portion of their play time or similar punishment. Serious behavior issues are handled with the following policy:
The “Three Strikes, You’re Out! policy was implemented to ensure the safety of each student. While it was created to be a preventative measure, it has the potential to dismiss students based on their behavior. While we understand the cognitive and development abilities of students, we will not allow students to harm themselves, their peers, or the faculty/staff. The first several weeks of school are dedicated to helping students understand
their boundaries and classroom expectations. This policy is designed to protect our students
from those who refuse to conform with classroom expectations. Students are not permitted to strike another student, use foul/crass language, or disrespect another student or faculty/staff member. This type of behavior is carefully monitored and recorded. Repeated offences will result in the dismissal of the student.
