School Notes:

The heart of Windward Nazarene is to embrace families in the work of raising our children together. Central to this is the building of strong relationships that provide support, for families from the school and for the school from families, to give children the best possible environment for growth and development.

School Reviews

We have three at WNA and all three love going to school! In Our oldest is only in Kindergarden and can readon her own, write in cursive, and addition. Staff and parents are all great and work together to help each child along. Great Atmosphere and learning God's Love.
