My daughter has gone to NWLE for the past 3 years (K-2) and will be starting 3rd grade in the fall. I am extremely pleased with this school. The teachers are fantastic as well as the office staff. The principal prides himself on knowing the name of each student. (no easy task since there are more than 1000.) They also have a policy of "catch them doing something good" at this school. When a child is "caught" doing something good (for example picking up garbage on the playground without being told) they are sent to the principals office, but instead of getting in trouble, they are rewarded. Educationally, the teachers all teach several different concepts when teaching a subject so that a child that might not grasp one concept, might grasp it taught in a different way. This is especially true in math. I am highly pleased with this school.

I have one child at NWLE and it is a great school but their afternoon car line is crazy because people park in the car line to go in and pick up their child instead of parking in the parking lot. Then while you are waiting in the line you have to move out of the line because they want you to move so they can get by.

We have two children at NWLE and could not be happier! We moved from Michigan where we had planned to send our children to Christian Private Schools. We did not need to pay the additional private school tuition when moving to this area because the school exceeds our expectations! Our Son has gone thru K, 1st, 2nd, and is in 3rd now. He is encouraged and challenged to do his best. Our Daughter has attended the PK and is in K now. Different teachers with the same results. I can not say one bad thing about the teachers or the Principles at this school. Thank you to NWLE and all their staff!

This is my seventh year at NWLE. It is by far the best school at which I have taught. Administration leads by example and everyone is treated fairly. At NW, the students are our first priority and we strive to provide the best education and opportunities available for them. Our teachers are supurb and the support staff excellent. We have many parents who eagerly pay tuition so their children can attend our school. That is itself speaks well of our school's reputation in the community.

I have been so pleased and blessed to have a school like NWLE for my 2 boys, which are 7 & 8. We live in the city limits and have to pay tuition. It is so worth it because of the kindness that my boys and myself have received.

I am very proud to be a NWLE parent! I have two children, both are triving thanks to the solid English/comprehension background she got at NWLE. The biggest help as come with my youngest. She was tested for speech therapy while in PreK. You can only imagine the confidence she gained! It has been my expreience that parents are not only welcome but encouraged to participate in class projects. Music program could be expaned to expose children to more variety. Art program seems average. Character Education could definately be more exciting and interactive.

I absolutely love this school. My son is in 2nd grade and he was going to the city schools and it was terrible compared to this school. This school's teachers (with the exception of a few) are wonderful, caring, and loving with the children. There isn't as much parent involvement as I'd like to see but over all this school rates A in my book. My son is thriving and learning. I just wish they didn't get so much homework. That is a problem, but the only major one and you find that in most.
