Student, National Cathedral School, Class of 2016,
It would depend on the type of student. For a gifted or advanced student in math or science, NCS is not the best option, as it is very hard to convince the administration to allow students to take harder classes. However, if English or history is a students' strength, NCS is definitely one of the best schools to go to, because it has a very good humanities. If a student considering NCS is primarily concerned with getting a perfect or almost perfect GPA, NCS is most likely not the right choice.
