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.

Northwest Lutheran has great teachers who cared for about the students! They want the students to suceed! They want every student to grow spiritually, academically, and emotionally.

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.
