    So bad..... Honestly I hate this school. You are disrespected a lot and you barely have any say in anything... It's really bad & there isn't many things that kids like to do here.... the bullying is really bad.... All our principal cares about is binders out binders out binders out! When we have kids that are scared of being whacked in the face with a binder so that's why they don't carry them.. Dress code total whack. I just overall don't like this school. The teachers are sometimes good and other times really bad.

    the princiaple of this school is unqualifyed for his job im am very suprise he has made it this far in the school system he yells i mean screams and im not over exadrrating this guy could care less about your childs well being he cares more about having their shirt tucked in than about how their grades are or if they'll pass or fail. talk about no controll this guy feels he has to come in at the middle of lunch and SCREAM so loud that he literlly has to put the micro phone down because he's like blowing out the speakers he will just send kids to the office just because he is in a bad mood. no matter who you talk to you will get the same answer this school stinks. this school used to be a really good school intell this new guy came in. i would seriously recomend you do not put your child in this school in less they have a different princeaple and by the way the princiaples name is allen if you see that name in that school when you go there turn around and walk out trust me

    This school is okayy. There are some teachers who have bad attitudes and if you need help they make you come in at lunch but if you dont that it. If you are absent some days they just give you notes and say what youdo with this is up to you. Before i went to Ncms I went to Saint Cloud in st.cloud thye would go back and help your child one on one and will make the lesson longer if a child or children need help but in this school they continue wether you know it or not. I think this school is good but is lacking in some areas. )

    I am not happy with this school. My child was failing 3 classes in 6th grade and none of the teachers ever called to let me know or schedule a meeting.. We scheduled a meeting ourselves when we seen the report cards keep coming in with F's .The meeting was with all his teachers at once and only one teacher talked and took up the whole hour on how he was such a good student in her class. Nothing was accomplished with the meeting. I had to get on PIV everyday to keep on him...In the end he passed but I did not even know this until I called the school to find out...Now he is in 7th grade and we will see...If it is the same by the first report card I will be pulling him out of this school!

    This school is awesome!! The principle and staff do a great job making each and every kid feel special. The new orchestra program is a great addition for the school. I love watching the kids learn with love and humor.

    As a parent I feel my child is getting taught by exceptional teachers that go above and beyond the call of duty. She is well prepared and is taught to think for herself. We wish she had music and art but hopeful about next year once the new school is open.

    It is nice to be able to give a praise where praise is due. I know people are quick to complain. So I would like to Thank the staff of Narcoossee Community School for such a wonderful job. I have four kids in the school this year and the administration & teachers always see to the needs of the students! Thank you for putting the students first!

    I just wasnt to say what a blessing I think Mr. Phelps is to our school. He is a very kind man and my children just love him to death.Way to go Mr. Phelps. I would also like to say thank-you to mrs. Michelle Thompson (5th grade) and Mrs. Mcgoogan (3rd grade) for being such amazing teachers. Last but not least Debbie in the front office is always so wonderful!Love Her!

    The quality of their progrmas is great. They alaways keep paretns informed of schools activities or any other changes. There are a lot of extracurricular activities with the YMCA. Parents of this school are very cooperative they are very involve with the school.

    I have two children at NCS. I am very pleased with the quality of education. I recommend this school highly.

    The music program at Narcoossee is very lacking. If you are wishing for your child to play in the band or sing in a chorus- this is not the school for you.

    I just graduated from NCS in 2004 I have been going there since the day it opened and it is a really good school. There are plenty of middle school and elementary school students activities and I have greatly enjoyed my time there. I was the President of Student Council and involved in the Yearbook Staff and the students are willing to help keep our school beautiful and help each other. I have seen very few fights there and I have never been asked to do drugs or try alcohol or anything. I think if you are looking for a nice school for your child to go to this is a good one. Not only will you feel like your child is safe but they will have fun while at school.
