The high school has been a great experience for my children. They are stretched academically and spiritually. Teachers and the Principal have been great to deal with. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a quality Christian Education.

The students are learning through some very cool hands-on units--- this school goes beyond the books-- and the kids are loving it!

Northpointe Christian Elementary has been our first school experience, as our daughter is only in preschool, but we have been very pleased with this first experience! The teachers and principal - even other parents - have been very helpful. Our daughter is always excited to go to school and she is learning to sound out words already! I know they are very careful not to 'push' reading on preschoolers there, but it just seems to be happening so quickly - effortlessly! I am sure small class size helps - and a great, patient preschool teacher! Mrs. Childers and Mrs. Winkle are fantastic. Mr. Nickel, the principal, has also been very helpful and always available. I recommend this school without reservation.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.

 
 

Breaking down the GreatSchools Rating

Unfortunately, this school doesn't have sufficient data to generate an academic rating.

Oops! We currently do not have any student 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.
