This is a negative reinforcement school that invokes fear through demerits, strict rules and sometimes yelling and lot's of punishments.

When negative things happen at the school, parents are not notified. For example when a teacher leaves without explanation, or if a parent has a complaint or concern, the school goes by what teachers think and there is little recourse since the school is not accredited and therefore, no outside governing body investigates the matter. There also seems to be an abnormal amount of negative gossiping among staff and parents.

The enrollment has plummeted over the past years and can be verified. The school is not accredited and therefore no organization reviews policies or academic standards. The school does not offer drama, gospel choir, AP classes and many things like enrollment numbers need to be updated on websites. Teachers leave without notice or explanations and this makes it hard on students. If you are going to pay for a private school, you need to review the cons of not being accredited and how that can affect your child in the future. If you are looking for a homeschool type of education, then being accredited may not matter.

NWHCS is a community of Christian families who care for each other and each other's families. Students going through school here make friendships and memories that last a lifetime. Teachers and staff are not here for pay...they are here because they truly care for and love these children. One review stated that teachers rarely stay a year or longer--this is the exception, and only true when young teachers leave for public school where they can earn 3 times as much. The teachers are dedicated and make sacrifices to be able to contribute to the child's true worth. Schools are made up of the students and these students' families, and NWHCS has great families!

The school runs on a negative reinforcement policy that invokes fear in the children instead of a rewarding and positive system.

There are some teachers that do but the school as a whole does not and is demonstrated by their high turn-over rates and job openings.

The administration backs the teachers no matter what and there is not a governing body that reviews or oversees the school if parents have an incident or grievance due to it being unaccredited.

The school is struggling to maintain enough students to continue because many parents have had bad experiences and because the school is not accredited, their is no recourse. The principal is on the school board that oversees her actions and this alone is not fair or represents integrity. Many parents have enrolled their children for next year but are withdrawing them even at the cost of losing their registration and book fees.
