School Official Point of View

Northwest Academy's culture is unpretentious and inclusive. The classes are amazing. My kids read classics like "To Kill a Mockingbird" in 6th grade and went on to write college-level papers in high school. They developed new passions through all of the arts classes in everything from black and white photography to tap dance. And they carried the time management and study skills from their middle school learning lab classes with them to college.

The culture at NWA is unlike any school I've seen. Kids are strongly encouraged to explore themselves and be the best they can be. The school has been a critical part of our son's maturation.

Our son has attended Northwest Academy for high school and it has been an amazing experience. The work he is doing as a junior in high school is at a higher level than i did in college. More importantly, the culture at the school has enabled him to develop into an amazing, brave and thoughtful kid who ready for just about everything. I can't recommend this school enough.

Great curriculum. I'd love to give this school a higher rating. The major reason for this low rating is that if the Head Of School believes that your student is in any way not able to keep up with the curriculum, your student will be asked to leave, (or not invited back). There is zero tolerance to work with a student who learns at a slower pace and/or may require extra guidance. No room for students with mental health or similar issues.



- a
The teachers are excellent! My son has thrived in this environment. The faculty go above and beyond to inspire student academic, social, and creative growth.
