Northwest Hills Baptist Church is a community of baptized believers organized to advance the cause of Christ.
We seek to accomplish this through regular worship services, the proclamation of the gospel, personal evangelism, outreach ministries, missionary endeavors, pastoral care and Christian education offered both through church classes and through a weekday school.
We believe that the ministry of our Lord Jesus Christ gives us the pattern for ministry--namely, caring, sacrificial service to others.
Northwest Hills Christian School uses a high quality, innovative, advanced Christian curriculum - the ABeka Curriculum.

- Ours is a school family that puts faith in God first, relationships with His people second, and teaching the content a close third. We have Pre-Kindergarten: 3-year-old classes through 8th grade. Small class size, quality curriculum, and great teachers lead to academic excellence. NWHCS is a safe school with affordable tuition.

NWHCS does have high expectations for its students. The Pre-K classes begin learning to read and write the alphabet and numbers at age 3. By the end of the Kindergarten year, the majority of students are reading at a 2nd grade level and taught beginning level cursive/handwriting. In 1st Grade, the students are expanding their reading skills and most have fully grasped cursive/handwriting skills by the end of the first school semester. If your child needs extra help or is struggling with keeping up with the curriculum, the teachers are readily available to help with after school tutoring or work together with parents on different approaches to learning that will help your child stay on track. NWHCS has received the blessing of Principal Gilpatrick Peyton, he works extremely hard on developing relationships with all students and parents. He is always visible at school and his door is always open, he responds quickly to parents e-mails and phone calls. I have personally brought concerns to him and he has acted diligently and always addressed them quickly and satisfactory. NWHCS is a tight network of families that work together to help the school succeed. My student is completing their second school year at NWHCS and I encourage any parent looking for a faith-based education for their child in a more personal setting, where families work together to help the school succeed to meet with Principal Peyton and take a tour of the school. You will not be disappointed.
