At NSCD, we develop critical thinkers, collaborative problem solvers and caring citizens of the world. We’ve spent 100 years creating a culture where relationships catalyze learning. Where children learn to take risks and make their own connections from grade to grade, year to year.
"North Shore is about this idea of empowering kids for ownership of
their learning and giving them opportunities.
The teachers know it’s not about the grade, it’s about learning the material. It’s about actually understanding something...
I love that!
