Don't waste your time with this school. They lure you in to take your money and you expect excellence by paying so much money, compared to the other catholic schools but you don't get back what you expected. They just take your money.

I have been reading these reviews and I haven't seen one from a student, the ones actually attending the school. As a former student, I have to say that my time at Northwoods was not pleasant. First and foremost, do not believe what their website says. It claims that Northwoods teaches strong moral character

The people who bullied me never got reprimanded because their parents donated alot to the school. The bullying was constant, and I was miserable. Just because the website looks good and it is a Catholic school doesn't mean that Northwoods is a good place to send your kids. Think twice before considering enrolling your kids Read less

I am so proud to be a parent of a Northwoods Catholic School child. The school is incredible! Northwoods Catholic School has the highest levels of academics, within Catholic schools, which is evident in the 100% acceptance into Catholic High Schools by graduating 8th graders. The Legionary's Integral

We have been amazed with the high level of academic programs and the gender separate education within K-5th grades. The school's leadership is excellent and continuing to grow. The school has recently announced a reduction in tuition, which is amazing during this time of financial disaster within the U.S. Again, so very blessed to have the opportunity to have such a wonderful school in the North part of Houston. Thanks Be to God! Read less

My child attends the Pre-K 3, 5 days a week. Small class size enables the teachers to help or challenge when needed. Children can all write their names, and this week my child came home talking about the solar system, the water cycle ('precipitation' and 'evaporation') and counting by 10's. In Kindergarten
... Read more I have heard the teacher discussing 3 branches of government, parts of speech and subjects that my older child was not taught in Klein ISD until ~2nd grade. The staff are so friendly. We have visited other Catholic schools in the area and encountered rude receptionisits & admissions personnel, but this never happens at Northwoods. My child walks down the hall and is greeted by name. There is an exciting PE teacher and music program. Even lowest grades have art class.Kids pray before meals, attend chapel, mass and are taught religion. Parents are involved, regularly bringing projects, attending mass and volunteering. I work full time and I have never been pressured into doing more than I can. There is a uniform trade program that helps save on back to school costs. Negatives: Tuition is higher than avg, no discount for 2nd child, no gifted and talented. Read less

I don't know where some of the "worst" reviews are coming from but they're way off the mark. As to tuition, my wife and I thoroughly scrutinized the area Catholic schools and found NCS's tuition to be about median - a bit more expensive than some, a bit less expensive than others. As to whether the
... Read more kids are "behind" other schools or "ahead" in terms of their curriculum, that's highly debatable. I'm sure there are probably a few very wealthy schools with the wherewithal to provide the "latest" and "newest" everything. Telling a prospective parent to put their kid(s) in a public school instead is as wrong as it is spiteful. Cy Fair and Klein schools are horrendous. Tomball schools are getting that way. How do I know? I live in Tomball, I graduated from Cy Fair schools and my wife works in NW area high school who sees, first hand, the "results" of the area public schools. My kids absolutely love school and the teachers are first-rate. The faculty know each and every student by name. The environment is safe, secure and cheerful. Yeah, there are a few things I'd like to see introduced but I can't see my kids going any to any other school. Read less

This was our first year at Northwoods and our children had a great year. My oldest child finally received the challenge that he didn't get in public school. We'd like to see improvements in technology but overall a great school.

Northwoods Catholic is a most amazing school! From my experience and speaking with parents outside NCS, I know our academics are beyond those of other schools. Parents who are not involved in their children's homework & academic success do so at the detriment of their child. The school where parents

I do not know of any other Catholic school that has 24/7 access to a Legion of Priests and Brothers and 11 Consecrated Women! That, my fiends, is more that worth the cost of admission! God Bless NCS!
