We treat students as individuals. Our teachers and staff get to know each student to understand they learn best. Teams of educators meet weekly to ensure they meet their students' needs, discussing their strengths and opportunities for improvement. This allows them to establish effective plans to keep students on the right track.
North Scott's teachers and staff work together to maintain a robust, yet caring, educational environment across all our schools. We combine rigor with addressing students' social-emotional health, allowing them to achieve success in and out of the classroom. We prepare young people to become positive and productive members of the community.
We encourage students to explore their interests, talents, and passions through a variety of extracurricular and co-curricular programs. We find that these opportunities promote social and emotional development, leadership, and cooperation—all critical skills in today's global economy.
