My daughter and son are bright kids but have so much homework that they cannot participate in after school activities. Drugs and bullying in the school is a big problem. Teachers think IEPs are meaningless and do not accept learning differences. I know of suicidal kids in this school due to unreasonable ...  Read more

Our daughter just graduated from Blue Valley Northwest. We were delighted and impressed with the caring and encouraging teachers at BVNW.

I attended this school. The teachers are passionate about their job and students. A lot of them stay after hours to offer help to any child who needs it. There are so many options when it comes to extracurricular activities. The student body is quite diverse and very accepting. I loved coming to school ...  Read more

BVNW is a decent school but does not prepare student's for the real world. it has very minimal racial, ethnic and economic diversity. My children who were honors student had a good experience but my one child who needed more help really was damaged by attending this school. Be sure your kids have ...  Read more
