At North Cobb, we believe a student’s success in life is dependent upon more than just grades. To become truly “educated,” we believe students must recognize and develop their intellect, their talents, and their aspirations.
We are deeply focused on 21st century academics and offer a variety of curricular and extracurricular options for students. Our students enjoy advanced placement courses, NJROTC, fine arts, career and technical education courses, world languages, nationally recognized clubs, and athletics.
