I have a daughter in Preschool her at NWCC. She loves her class, and we plan on keeping her here as long as we can. We love the student to teacher ratio, and she is so driven to learn the bible. It is amazing! Next year we plan on enrolling our son as well. Thank you so much Northwest for you loving family atmosphere.

NW Christian is the first school that's been a perfect environment for my son, who has never been happy in school before we finally found this nurturing environment with great teachers!

My children attend NWCC for the first time this year, transferring from another Christian school. I am very impressed that, along with the Christian atmosphere, they have a wonderful Computer classes.

My child entered NWCC as a preschooler and is now in high school. We love the dedicated staff and the quality education they provide in a family atmosphere.

This is a great, family oriented school! With an awesome Teacher/student ratio, homemade lunch program, and new programs being developed to further assist students who are both advanced & a little behind - I love this place!

NWCC is a great school. My daughter has been a student here for 4 years and we plan to keep her here through high school. We have a great staff who gets together every morning and prays. I have stayed for chapel and really like the way the kids use music to praise God. My daughter is in 5 extra curricular clubs which meet once a month. Her knowledge of the world and the Bible are amazing! My oldest daughter has been in 4 different public schools and none can compare with the education my youngest daughter is getting. This is truly a wonderful school!

I am very pleased w/ NWCC. I have a 1st grader whose teacher is wonderful. I also have a pre-schooler there and his teacher is also great. The school only goes through 8th grade right now and we plan to keep our children there as long as possible. It's so great to have our children in a Christian school. The first grade teacher takes prayer requests every day and prays. It's so wonderful. There's new leadership this year and she's young but very enthusiastic. I'm sure she's going to be a great assett to the future of our school.

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.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.

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 »
