After 3 years at this school it is clear that it was a poor choice for academics and Christian values. I could elaborate but not worth the time other than to say when a child is bullied and develops low self esteem because of poor supervision and teaching the school isn't worth it.

We are extremely happy with NLS. The school is a wonderful place for parents looking for a family friendly and affordable Christian private school.

My children have attended this school for 4+ years, two of my children are now straight A students in high school and I believe their study habits and the support of the teachers at Northdale are what has given them the ability to excel in high school. I still have two students attending Northdale and I'm expecting great things from them as well!

small teacher/student ratio, unsafe playground conditions with not nearly enough supervision. Too much emphasis on memory Bible work and not enough on academics.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
