My daughter attended this East campus of NWC from K5-2nd grade. We left last school year. The administration had poor communication w/ parents and staff. My daughter was physically assaulted by other kids on the playground and I was not informed. Problem children repeatedly violated policies and were allowed to come back year after year. Students were disrespectful to each other and formed groups based on adult TV shows like the Bad Girls Club. Bullying should be zero tolerance and I did not see that happen. The school changed greatly during the 3 years we were there. Programs were dropped and a lot of administrative changes took place. On a positive note, the teachers were awesome, always making me feel welcome & part of a community and were always available.
This school and it's sister school are falling apart rapidly. I can say this because my child has gone to both schools and every year things go downhill. This year really takes the cake! Enrollment is down and they don't know why (aside from having to give the boot to many problem children). Teachers are retiring and quitting and aides are being let go because they lack funds. 3 weeks into the school year, a year that is about changes and making things better, they are now combining 4th grade classes and sending the other teacher off to the other campus. Did they discuss this with parents? Nope. Why didn't they take care of this prior to the start of the year? The class sizes were small, we expected them to make up for the awful previous year. If they were going to combine they should have done it sooner not 3 weeks in because one of their other teachers quit. By doing this they are messing with the children and their comfort. They said they are doing it for education, larger doesn't mean better in this case! If I had other options my child would be out the door. I don't recommend this place. They'd like us to refer people to them ut I just can't. It's wrong.
This in a terrible school. It was great two years ago, but it's amazing how quickly it's transformed into a school with fights daily, foul language, and rampant disrespect.
Hi,I am a 7th grade student at northwest catholic.last year the east campus and west campus merged (which was a bad idea).now there are fights,kids who have no respect,and a watered down curriculum.it's sad there are only a couple of teacher who actually care about the students,and the principal well...I can't say anything about her without saying something mean.I am an a+ student and am very respectful to my classmates and teachers so when I came to nwc I was very dissoponted I hated coming to school .so if you want your children to learn and be happy and respectful don't send them to nwc
Northwest Catholic School has a great environment for learning. The teachers are dedicated and go the extra miles for the kids. There is a weekly all school Mass, art, music, Spanish, computer lab, gym class, a breakfast program and after school care for the students registered at the school.
Christian education, Great teachers, long history of outstanding musical productions.
NW Catholic West is a wonderful school. The teachers and support staff are kind, caring and are always striving to help the children succeed!
Great school; good decipline; kids are getting a great education. very happy here.
