NCE mission involves working with the parents in the Christian education of students, and so we expect parents to be partners in nurturing their children, and to agree to the following statement.  “As a parent I agree to support the school with my prayers and with a positive attitude.  Complaints or negative comments will be shared ONLY with the teacher, administrator, or person involved and NOT with my child or other people, following the Matthew 18 principle.”
