School Reviews

  • Recommended September 26, 2013 - Northwest Christian School has impressed me in a number of ways. The teachers are certified by ACSI and the Arizona Department of Education. Each of the teachers and staff members my children interacted with truly cared about them. My children have been prayed for, prayed with and encouraged. Academically each of my children was challenged at their level of need. My three kids came in three flavors. One needed academic support and another needed academic challenge. We found both at NCS. Socially my children found their niche in athletics and fine arts. We have continually been blessed to be a part of NCS. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended April 04, 2013 - It is a joy to teach at Northwest. I strive to bring biblical truths in every subject and enjoy teaching children the Word of God. The staff prays together and works cohesively as one team working toward a common goal: to train young people to have a biblical worldview in an ever changing world. - Posted by Teacher
  • Recommended February 14, 2013 - HI, I am the grandparent of one of your kindergarten students and would like some information on several of your extra-curricular programs. 1. Cub Scouts 2. Chess Club 3. Book Buddies Thanks Tom Shelby - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended January 08, 2013 - What a blessing NCS has been to our three kids; all are considered lifers. NCS prepared them for their Chrisitian Walk and World View, College, Life as a Christian in a World lacking Christian Values. Have no regrets what so ever in sendin our kids to NCS and investing the thousands of dollars; more than well worth it! An investment that has infinite value and last many lifetimes and generations to come. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended January 08, 2013 - This is my 3rd year at Northwest Christian School and I''m so proud that my children attend this school. The school offers so many activities, sports for students to be a part of no matter what their age or interests. The junior high school and high school sports programs are amazing. The classroom instruction is stellar--my children are getting a solid education elementary age through high school. But, most importantly they are surrounded by good people: their teachers, administration, and friends. God''s light shines on this campus in all they do. So blessed that my children can be a part of NCS. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended December 11, 2012 - I am an extremely picky former home school mom of 5 years. This school sounded too good to be true, but after 3 years, I can honestly say it has exceeded my expectations. My child is a freshman now and is involved in the Adventure Club (hiking, shooting, climbing), band, football, mission trips, discipleship groups, student government, weight training and theater. His classes challenge him and he is seeking a leadership scholarship to Grand Canyon University and excels with technology. The freshman class is really tight, and I feel blessed beyond measure at the circle of friends NCS has put around him. The superintendent''s door is always open and I attend the monthly Coffee with the Principals; parent participation makes this school great too without the drama and financial challenges other private schools seem to be troubled with. It is the best decision we could have made. - Posted by Parent
