Northwest Hills Christian School Reviews

6 reviews
All Categories
The Pre-K classes begin learning to read and write the alphabet and numbers at age 3. By the end of Kindergarten, majority of students are reading at a 2nd grade level and taught beginning level cursive/handwriting. In 1st, students are expanding their reading skills and most have fully grasped cursive/handwriting skills by the end of the first school semester. 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. If you are looking for faith-based education in a personal setting I encourage you to schedule a tour, you will not be disappointed.

All 3 of our kids currently attend this school and all of them have tested 2+ grade levels above other kids their age at other local private and public schools. How can this be, when their tuition is so much lower than other prestigious christian schools we have visited. After some serious probing, my husband and I discovered this school pays most teachers only 20k annually. What!? That's crazy! I guess that explains the low cost of tuition. Makes me feel sorry to rejoice at the low cost. We looked into sending our kids to other schools like Castle Hills, Cornerstone, Basis, Legacy, Shepherd of the Hills, etc. Our results for the past 5 years: all of our kids tested higher than what was expected for entry into those schools. That was a blessing! I'm not sugar coating anything. The teachers are strict. They always use scripture to discipline and doctrine our kids and we love that!!!!! We had one problem with one teacher, but we heard she will not be returning next year. Praise God!
This school has really helped me form my understanding of each subject and I have not only improved in the classroom with education, but with my social skills and how to be responsible with my time.
