Open Quote There are so many wonderful programs at Northwestern, something that fits with every child's interests and needs. I have watched my daughter blossom at this school like I never would have imagined out of her first year in middle school. I would not think of moving my kids out of this school. I have never been happier with a school that my kids have attended. The teachers are great, wonderful programs, superior opportunities......This is a fabulous place for your kids to attend school.

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
