    I had a fantastic experience at Northwest! The teachers have high expectations for their students, go out of their way to help them succeed, and are very approachable. The A.P. classes offered are great- the teachers prepare students very well for the A.P. Exams, which helped many of us receive college credit. One of the things I appreciated most was the family atmosphere. I was a transfer student, and everyone was genuinely kind and went out of their way to make me feel accepted and included. The administration staff is awesome-they relate well to and are respected by the students. The music program is phenomenal, especially the concert and chamber choirs. I’m so thankful I received a Christ-centered education that equipped me well for college.

    I loved how everyone felt like family! Every single teacher cares about you and wants you to do your best. I am always at ease knowing that if I am struggling, my teachers are willing to help because they care. It is also amazing how we get to learn about the word of God every day in a safe environment! Lutheran high school northwest also has very good sports teams and music programs that every student is able to thrive at. It is an all around great school!
    Lutheran High School Northwest is a great environment. The teachers there are caring, loving, and they treat you as their own. They have received a great education and give their students the same. They prepare you for college. They start at the beginning of freshman year. The guidance counselor meets with every student at least once during the year. You can request to speak and she will always be glad to talk. With this being a smaller school, everybody knows everybody. So there are no strangers in the hall and always someone to talk to. The faculty gives the seniors and juniors an opportunity to become mentors for freshman and sophomore. You're mentor is there to talk and give advice to you. It is very helpful especially for the incoming freshman. They give you there phone numbers so you can go to the with questions about the dress code, what supplies you need, maybe even some questions on homework. Overall Lutheran High School Northwest is a great environment and a caring place.
