I enrolled my children in Northwest Lutheran School last year and that was the best decision I could have ever made. My children are happy now and really enjoy learning. The entire staff there is very helpful and take the time to make sure that the kids aren't just doing the work, but actually understand what they are doing. I highly recoommend this school.

Over all Northwest school is a school that will help your child grow spiritually, academically, and emotionally. With my child being a k-5 student whom has attended since last year the core curriculum is very advanced. i do feel at times the work can be a bit overwhelming for a 5-year with advanced work but if you are looking for a challenge this would be the right school for. at first the communication with his Teacher was not as good as it was with his k-4 teacher ( whom i absolutely loved ) but after parent teacher conference that has improved. They also offer extra programs for students whom are struggling. If you are willing to but in the work with your child to go above and beyond then this would be the right choice . I Do recommend North West Lutheran

My son is a 3rd grade student here at Northwest, and I feel this is a great fit for my son, that is naturally laid back and more reserve. The teachers here are great and they take the time to get to know your child, and that does make a difference. I would recommend this school to anyone that is looking for a faith based school that cares about the progress of you child.

I love Northwest Lutheran. My son is a 1st grader there. He is doing very well at Northwest Lutheran and reading a grade higher than an average 1st grader.
