School Reviews

This school is awesome. My di daughters have been at NWCS for 11 years and it is an incredible learning and mentoring environment where Christ is honored. The teachers are excellent and care deeply about the whole child. My oldest graduates this year and she wishes her senior year would never end. That speaks volumes...
