NCS is a great school that my family has attended for over 10 years! The principal, teachers, and staff are Godly people who not only provide an excellent Christian education but also truly nurture and care for the students. They provide sound academic courses in addition to many extracurricular activities in sports, choir, band, science, and math.

We have been very happy at Northwest Christian School. We chose the school after I visited many preschools and I was very happy to see the students in Mrs. Kedash' classroom. The students were engaged, attentive and happy. My daughter has now been at the school for three years and we continue to be impressed with the challenging academics and more importantly the spiritual guidance and moral character they encourage at the school. The school has a strong Christian foundation and great leadership starting with the Principal, Mr. Cottrell. We are looking forward to another great year.

I'm very impressed with NCS. We've had several children through this school in the past years, and we're quite happy with Joe Cottrell, the principal at the school. Joe is a godly man who lets nothing stand in his way of making sure the students at NCS find out how to live in a godly way. Academics are excellent, and athletics are up and coming. We'd recommend this school to EVERYONE!

I love this school ! My kids have learned a LOT here, and we are SO happy we decided to send them. The teachers are great people, as is Joe, the Principal. We've never had any problems that weren't properly handled. Thank God for NCS!

NCS is an excellent school to be in. I have personally been a student there for seven years, and going into 8th grade and couldn't imagine being anywhere else. Amazing group of kids, highly recommended!

Not a good place to be in. Too many clicks in my opinion. Teachers get an C- for efford from me they are not really with it. The school has no lunch room and you have to eat at your desk. I told my parents it not worth your money mom and dad.

We are parents at the school, and we've got two kids there. I have never been disappointed in the quality of the education my kids have received up through 5th grade so far. We're loving our involvement on a few committees, and would really recommend to anyone in the world to bring their kids here.

A small, fast growing school that s ran by people who teach Christian values and care about your children. The classes are preschool through 8th. The teachers truly care about my children s spiritual wellbeing and academic growth. The curriculum is more challenging than most public schools and well rounded for a small school. There s a computer lab and computer use is taught from an early age. There isn t a lunchroom as of yet. There is a good gymnasium, sports fields and playground. There are extracurricular sports teams, very good art and music classes and instrumental lessons available. There are voluntary Bible, Spelling, Math, Instrumental and Choral competitions available most with other christian schools and some with public schools. There s a school science fair competition for the older grades every other year and teams are sent each spring to participate in the Trans-options solar model-car local, state and northeast regional races.

We are fairly new to the school and i am finding it is wonderful in some areas and lacking in others. the classes are too large(25 students per grade),and understandably the teachers are not of the highest quality; they don't get paid well. It is great to have a christ centered education and the teachers and staff are all very caring and supportive.

I am quite new to the school, but it didn't take me long to find out that yes indeed, I see favortism of families that attend certain churches. Some teachers are great while others do the bare minimum. Sports are good, but lack of communication about practices leaves you not knowing when it is or time it's over. Most parents have a very poor attitude toward involvement while a small group do everything.

The Principal of NCS, Mr. Joe Cottrell is a truly Godly man, who can also appreciate the value of competition. A highly competitive curriculum, (A-Beka) and Bible-based education happens here, with small classes and much parent support. Budget limits extracurriculars sometimes, but music, sports and clubs available; lunch is brown bag only. B+

I am a former student of this school, and I would never recommend this school to any prospective students or parents. There is extreme favoritism of certain families and students and the education quality is lacking. After graduating and going on to a public high school, I struggled to keep up with my peers. Parents who are looking for a solid Christian education beware; my teachers throughout the years would often skip our bible lessons to work on other subjects. This school attempts to shelter its students from the world, without sufficiently preparing them to enter into it as young adults. If I could change one part of my childhood, it would be attending Northwest Christian School. Extracurricular activites are a joke here as well as the quality of the teachers.

I am a student that graduated from this school. It was the best school I ever went to. I went to a hospital for a long time and the teachers always called me and sent me stuff and really worked w/ me and my work. The staff is very caring and I miss it very much. It's a fast growing school and I truly enjoyed my 4 years there. There is a lot of parent involvement and they do not let you slip on your grades because they will notify your parents. Its a great school if you like a small environment.
