The Northwest School Ratings & Reviews

Note the timing of the 5-star reviews after a coordinated effort by the school to boost their numbers. Most of the posters are employees or other affiliates of the school, NOT students or parents. This is a real review from a real parent.The first thing you'll notice about NWS is the extreme hubris and chutzpah. The exact other side of the same coin as Trump; dogmatic, not open to any outside input, and operate in own bubble with incessant patting of backs.Where to start? So much focus on commitment to social justice, while proudly charging the highest tuition in the Pacific Northwest, more than Lakeside!The academics are okay if your ONLY interested in being competent in Humanities, which are offered daily while Math and Science are only offered 2-3 times a week. A friend's kid had to reenroll in another school to learn chemistry, after graduating from NWS. STEM equipment, teachers and resources are non-existent, except for one good Math teacher (AC). The rest are below par and have a high turnover.NWS does not listen to parents (except when tuition is due) and barely tolerates the kids. Teachers are like tenured college professors who can act with impunity and be completely ineffective. Many are techno-phobes. The school's website, online parent and student portal and all other technology are stuck in "AOL: You've Got Mail" times.It's ridiculous that the school charges so much for not much value. In fact, they are too cheap to hire janitors, and so have all the cleaning done by the kids in the guise of an "environment" class. Very clever, they really have us all fooled.I'm glad to be done with this school. Before you mistake us for a bitter family, we have two kids and one did very well at NWS and is now at an Ivy League. I would say this was in spite of NWS, not because of (as she got tutored in STEM outside of school). The other needed learning support and didn't get it. he is now flourishing at SAAS.In both instances, our critique and the fundamental issues, were exactly the same.

The Northwest School is a stellar academic institution. It has the perfect balance of brains and heart. Kids come out with passion and purpose and a strong sense of social (global and local) responsibility. A+

The Northwest School helped my husband and I raise our two children and prepare them for not only college but for life. Both individuality and community are valued. The teachers are extraordinary. The sense of belonging and acceptance of all students and families is strong. The school truly lives up to its mission and lives by its values. If what you read about the school on its website resonates with you and your family, you've found a good fit. The school walks its talk!

Our family has two children attending the Northwest School. Both girls started at 6th graders, the oldest will graduate this spring, the younger will enter the upper school this next Fall. Our family are firm supporters of the school for a variety of reasons. First and foremost, is the excellent caliber of both the administration, and more importantly the staff. Each and everyone of the teachers we have experienced at the NWS have been stellar. The focus on academics is strong, but infused in the cross curricular studies are social justice, inclusion, and self-expression. We couldn't be happier!

The Northwest School is a rare find. Idealism about the role and purpose of education is a distinguishing quality of the school. It is an intentional community that values individual contribution and intellectual courage. Kids are celebrated for who they are and encouraged to try new things. They are scholars, athletes, artists, explorers, and activists – one and all. This approach develops critical thinkers who know themselves from the inside out. The faculty are brilliant! Not only great teachers, they are mentors and guides who care deeply about each and every child. We are grateful that both of our girls have had the opportunity to learn and grow in this magical learning environment with caring, compassionate faculty.
