    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 have loved Lutheran High School Northwest. I was able to create a relationship with my teachers and get one on one help on assignments and anything I had questions on. You could tell that the teachers really cared about the students success. They wanted to know us on a personal level, yet not in a weird way. I loved the sporting events too. Sports are important to me and I had the opportunity to play sports that I had never played before because it is a smaller school. Even though it's small the atmosphere at sporting events is not boring. There is a student section at football games, volleyball games, basketball games and more. I even had friends come and support me at golf states. We are truly a family. We all care about each other and want each other to succeed. The only thing I would change would the lunch program. The hot lunch is not made at our school and in my opinion is a poor quality. Overall, I have loved my time at Northwest.
    I have been going to Northwest for almost four years now and the students have been really accepting. The teachers are a hit or miss and the cafeteria food is too overpriced for the food they are actually serving. Overall, I have to say that going to Northwest is a pleasant experience, especially considering the Lutheran education you receive, and the sports programs are all very good.
