Northwest Lutheran School is dedicated to helping each and every child grow and learn what is being taught to them. My two children who are in the 3rd and 6th grade absolutely love going here. The staff is very helpful and will go above and beyond to make sure the children get everything they need. This was the best decision I could have made for my children. I recommend Northwest Lutheran School to all parents.

I am a parent of two children who attend Northwest Lutheran. My oldest has been there since the fifth grade and is now graduating from eighth grade this school year. My other child is in k-4. The staff, teachers , administrators, principal, and dean of students are such wonderful people.They have absolutely the best teachers! I love the academics and christian values that are taught. They have really made a difference in my eighth grader since he has been there. He was really struggling with grades when he came to Northwest. Now he is an honor student. My k-4 has some struggles and they work hard to see to it that he gets what he needs in help for him to be successful as well. I volunteer there when i can and i love doing so. This school is way better than any public school in my eyes. Any parent considering Northwest Lutheran and decides to pick them will not have any regrets in doing so! It has been the best school for my children and i am sure it would be for any parent looking for a good school.Everybody there is just wonderful, teachers, principal, dean of students, even the kitchen staff! check it out for yourself. You wont regret it!

I'm a parent of a 3rd grade student here, and to say that I'm happy with my choice would be a understatement. The staff is more than helpful and concerned with the growth of the children, and they keep you notified of the happenings with the school. My son attended St. Marcus last year and I was hesitant of moving him but wanted a school closer to home. I'm happy that Northwest Lutheran School was my choice they are just as great if not better.

I am a proud parent of a honor role 5th grader at Northwest Lutheran School. I love the academic program that has been put in place at Northwest, the progressive atmosphere of the teachers, and the faith based interaction my child receives as a student and I highly recommend this school if you are looking for a school who has the best interest of your child at heart!!!

The whole school year has been nothing but troubles!The teachers don't know how to handle the kids and My child went from being a A,B student to a B,C,D student this year.They don't offer half of the curricular activities they say they do.I have had so many complaints that the teachers do not help the kids try to understand what they are teaching.They do not send examples home or how to's for us parents to help our children at home I have also had a lot of issues with bullyingThe principal and dean do not deal with issues unless police get involved. They do not take responsibility for the problems that happen at the school.The school has alot of behavioral problemsFor detention if a student gets it they have to stand with there faces directed to the wall for an hour. What is that teaching the students about the behavior that they did wrong?No one has control of the students in this school!They give students assignments and if they don't finish them and turn them in that day it's late and get docked points.I don't want my child to rush through something and not be able to comprehend or understand itThe school has NO communication what so ever with the parents

Our school is a place where students can be successful. The staff is committed to making sure that all students learn at high levels. The culture of the school is one where students are able to learn and grow. The emphasis on Christian character helps students find the way to navigate in school and in the community. Academics are high and there is a strong emphasis on our students going to college. Our parents and families are top-notch. There is a feeling of respect between the staff, parents, and students.

This is one of the worst schools you can send your child to. First off my son got in trouble and the principle believed the other kid she does not have leadership. I took my kid out of that school after the year was over i sent him to Messmer Prep because i want him to be in a private school to learn about good. North West Lutheran did not show my child that.

Northwest allowed myself to grow as a Christian. Thanks to the teachers and fellow students I have allowed Christ to become my mentor.

We chose Northwest because we wanted our children to have a Christ-centered Christian education. Not only have we appreciated the maturity of faith that has developed, but they have also been very successful at the high school level. Northwest produces graduates who have repeatedly been named to the high honor roll as well as being recognized as valedictorians and salutatorians of their high school class. The staff is dedicated, caring, and very approachable.
