My child attends NorthPointe Christian Elementary and she could not be more pleased with her teachers, staff and friends. She is excited about coming to school and the staff at NorthPointe encourage this sentiment and keep the momentum going. As a parent, it is always a pleasure to see this passion for learning at a young age. The school also does a fantastic job of keeping parents informed of upcoming/ongoing events. They have helped facilitate a smooth transition from my child's experience with daycare/preschool to an elementary school environment. I could not ask for a more friendly, welcoming and nurturing institution.

Northpointe is a great school and balances good academics with a passion to see kids grow in their knowledge of God and who He made them to be. I've been impressed with the teachers and their desire to see kids absorb information while they develop into young adults.

The teachers and staff at Northpointe really care about the their students. They go above and beyond to help them excel academically, but more importantly spiritually as well. This is very evident in how the kids treat each other. There is genuine kindness displayed toward one another that is a blessing to experience.

A Christ centered biblical standard of excellence in education. In every area of the high school that I've encountered it's been inspiring.

NPC is the friendliest school my boys have ever attended. We have moved quite a bit and my boys have attended both public and private schools in the past. NPC, hands down, has been the most supportive, safe, and academically sound schools my boys have attended.

We have a few academically advanced children and we have been impressed with the dedicated teachers at NPCS and their ability to craft a customized path for each child in a way that challenges them to be their best. Moving to a new school in middle school can be difficult, but the folks at NPCS have been there every step of the way to guide us, answer our questions and simply be a helpful resource.

Northpointe Christian offers an excellent academic education with a Bibilical worldview focused on missional living. Teachers meet your child at their point of need. There is a resource center for those students who need extra help and independent studies are offered for those who excel. A wide variety of fine art and sports activities are offered so your child can serve the Lord with their unique gifts. Integrity and responsibility are taught early and are expected of each student. Several service opportunities are available throughout the year and these bond and solidify the student body. Most importantly, administration supports and ensures that the family unit is the most important. Your child's education is a partnership between your family, school and your church. We were warmly welcomed and greatly appreciate the individual interest each teacher takes in our children!

NPC Middle School has been a great choice for our son! He has developed relationships with his friends and teachers that are helping to shape him into a young man. The school is focused on teaching kids to impact their world for Jesus Christ, and they do this in a way that is so relevant to the kids. The school does an excellent job in the academic areas as well. We know that our child is at or above state level guidelines for his subjects and we are pleased with the structure and pace that he is able to progress. The school offers opportunities for band, orchestra, and many sports at the middle school level also.

Excellent academics taught by a seasoned and highly qualified faculty. They teach a Bible based, Christ-centered curriculum. It is as smaller school that is very welcoming, diverse, and has great extra-curricular activities. Incredible music and arts, and tremendous athletics as well!

I have three children enrolled at NorthPointe Christian: a senior, a junior and a 6th grader. My senior has learning dissabilities, ADD and a hearing impairment. He came to NPC in 8th grade. I cannot begin to tell you what an AMAZING staff this school has! He has struggled, but felt the love and compassion of teachers praying for him:) I cannot say enough good things about Brenda Maas and her staff in the Student Union!!! My 6th grader is adopted from Russia and has similar issues. I feel wonderful knowing she is in a school that will support her and make her feel like she fits in no matter her abilities are.

Our son attended the public school from kindergarten through 8th grade when he surprised us and said he wanted to go to a Christian high school. After attending a few shadow days at local schools he quickly chose Northpointe telling us that the students he met that day were all friendly and welcoming. He has made many friends in the first few months (not typical) and has been very happy with his decision. As parents we are thrilled to see him thriving, learning in a fast paced Christian environment and we've been surprised to get emails from the school with warnings of questionable social media apps that students can use in inappropriate ways. In all aspects this school has been a boon for our son, academically, socially and for deepening his faith.

We have two children at Northpointe. We have one in pre-school and one in kindergarten. We committed to Northpointe because we see the passion for Jesus. However since becoming involved we are seeing a new passion trend towards Spanish Immersion (in the form of recruiting students and salaries toward Spanish Teachers). Our hope and prayer is that Jesus remains the focus at Northpointe not Spanish Immersion. He is the reason for our commitment.

I cannot imagine having my children attend any other school than NorthPointe! The teachers and staff genuinely care for each and every student and meet their needs right where the students are. My children have never experienced a more welcoming environment than when they transferred to NPC. The students at NorthPointe truly go out of their way to make sure new students feel at home.

We LOVE Northpointe! We have three girls and have sent all three since Pre-school. The administration is amazing, class sizes are small, and the teachers are super hands on and really love the children. I am so thankful to have the opportunity to send our children to such a great school. :)

Northpointe stands out for me because of the tremendous way the staff demonstrates that they care about EVERY student and they care all the time - whether in the classroom or in the hall. The AP class option for older students is a definite plus as well!

The staff really cares a lot about the students, and the orchestra is just scrumptious. Most of the students are truly passionate in their faith.

Northpointe Christian school,starts in preschool as early as 3 and 4 and runs up to 12 grade. Northpointe Christian schools starts band and orchestra in the 5th grade and they can choose if they want to do that or not, the kids who don't do band would be in study hall.All kids do art, there all sports like tennis,football,baseball,soccer,softball,volleyball-ll and others not swimming theres choir. The school sends e-mail to parents who have email but parents who don't kids get a sheet a paper of what's happening. That's about it.
