I am at a loss for words that kids can be so nasty. I awaiting a return call from the Dean's Office ...  Read more

Very disappointed by the quality of the students. Extremely rude, and honestly not that intelligent.

I am very disappointed in the lack of professionalism in the administration team at NWCTA. The school does NOT put kids first.....

NWCTA is an amazing school for the motivated student and parent. We have been excited to finally see our child be challenged to learn in ways she had not previously been. Love the school!

NorthWest is a wonderful School. This up coming school year I will be a junior. I'm very excited to start my junior year because of how much this school really challenges me. I'm always being challenged even in my classes that are not honors. Coming into this school as a freshman I didn't know how hard ...  Read more
