What is an examples of a project or way your school teaches that is unique compared to other schools and why is this important?
At NHCS we teach that God is the source of all subjects and his character is revealed in each subject. We teach history chronologically so kids can see what God has been doing since creation. We read whole books compared to excerpts and anthologies. We teach the consequences of ideals and choices and we teach children to reason from scripture about everything.
