North Shore Community School (NSCS) is a rural charter school nestled in the woods near the north shore of Lake Superior approximately half way between Duluth and Two Harbors. Established in 2002, the school serves approximately 346 students in grades kindergarten through six.
NSCS' mission is to excel in connecting our students’ academics and learning with their natural and social environments in a nurturing community setting. This mission is driven by four core values:
- Kids First: Students’ diversity and needs drive decisions and actions
- Partnership: Together we achieve more than alone
- Knowledge: Skilled in accessing, navigating, and using a broad array of facts and viewpoints from a global perspective
- Stewardship: Care and responsibility for our natural and social environments
