NPC Elementary is a wonderful school. The teachers and administrators are very positive and encouraging. It is evident that they love and care for the children and families that are part of the NPC Family! My children are in a positive learning environment at NPC. They are making strides in all subject areas, and are doing a great job with making sure that active learning is taking place and using various techniques of teaching styles to accommodate all styles of learning. Not only are my children learning and growing in their subject areas, they are also learning and growing in Christ! I know that NPC is an important part of their faith journey, as well as their academic journey. A great school!

My daughter is in the Spanish Immersion program and has learned spanish so quickly! Her teacher is so patient and her love of children is evident. She communicates well with parents and will return emails or phone calls that very day. We love NPC!

This is my family's second year at NorthPointe Christian School. My child has attended both a charter and traditional public school in the past. NorthPointe Christian School has exceeded our expectations in regards to its curriculum, staffing, and accommodations. My child has a visual disability and the principal and teachers have gone above and beyond to help him succeed. NorthPointe is not only a fantastic educational institution, but it is also family centered and very accepting of new comers. The entire school has gone out of its way to make my family feel comfortable and confident about our school of choice. NorthPointe's commitment to loving God and loving others is evident, and it has been a blessing to be part of this school community. I highly recommend this school to anyone who is looking for quality education with a Christ-centered focus.

I LOVE NorthPointe Christian!! I have a preschool daughter enrolled in their program. They have an excellent Christ-centered curriculum. My daughter has memorized her alphabet, learned how to count and do simple math problems. The before school and after school program has made it possible for us to enroll her at NorthPointe as opposed to taking her to a daycare provider. The faculty and staff are very accommodating being sensitive to our families extreme health issues. I find that discipline and classroom management are handled very well, I have often sporadically stopped by school and looked through the door to see how my daughter is doing and am continually amazed at how the teachers handle all the angst and hyper activity that happen in a pre-school classroom. Communication home to the parents is great! They are consistent and make every effort to make sure us parents know what's going on in the classroom. I would highly recommend NorthPointe Christian to anyone looking for a preschool, it is worth every penny of ours!

NorthPointe Christian is a school where the entire staff loves and cares for your children and their entire wellbeing. They provide a great combination of guiding them to know and love the Lord with all of their heart, teaching them how to be a vessel in this world, while offering a solid academic education as well. We would send our kids no other place!

NorthPointe Christian Elementary exudes a positive, Christ-centered atmosphere through encouragement, positive reinforcement, biblical teachings, and consistent demonstration of Fruit of the Spirit by the teachers and staff. The curriculum is awesome. The principal and teachers are far more focused on each child reaching their individual potential than all children in a particular grade being the same. Children are not the same -- they all have unique needs. NorthPointe strives to nurture and meet the needs of the whole child -- their mind, their heart, their spirits. I'm so blessed to have a child attend NorthPointe Elementary.

We love everything about NPC! The teachers are very good with the students. Our son is in the Spanish Immersion program and he is learning so much. We can not express how much we appreciate how the staff takes a vested interest in our son's education. In short NPC is a great school!

The school did not want to make a few accommodations for our two special needs children due to fear of other families leaving and not paying. Our childrem are two sweet, beautiful, well-behaved children with food allergies. The teachers did not follow accommodations that were agreed upon in order to keep them safe. Each time my kid's were put at risk due to agreed upon accommodations not being followed, I gently spoke up. The school did not appreciate me advocating for my children and then blame shifted that we were the problem. My 5 and 7 year old were expelled because the teachers could not handle following accommodations. Instead of teachers and the principal being corrected, we were expelled. It is hard to believe what NPC says it stand for, because in this particular situation those live commands were not being followed. If you do not have medical needs and you don't mind that they do not follow what they say they stand for, then this may be a good school for you. Potter's house is much more ethnically diverse and seems to put the double love command into place exceptionally well.

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.

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.
