    My daughter has attended Northville Christian for 8 years. She has grown in knowledge and in love of the Lord every year she has attended. When she started in first grade, she couldn't read, even though everyone said she had an incredible vocabulary and was very intelligent. Within 2 months, she was reading at a 3rd grade level, thanks to the efforts of her teacher, who is very experienced. She had trouble with spelling and math as she got older, and the resource center worked with her when she was in fourth grade. She is now in honors math, taking Algebra, and getting A's. She is in the National Junior Honor Society, and has a 3.6 average in eighth grade. In fact, there are only 6 students in the 8th grade not in the NJHS, and this is not due to grade inflation. They all take standardized tests every year and are above the national average.

    More than that though, I love the culture at the school. Mr Storey, the principal, is a listening leader who teaches the young men to be gentlemen, and teaches the young women to be ladies. The boys admire him and look up to him as a hero. He also coaches the track team. The sports programs are excellent-wrestling, softball, basketball, volleyball, soccer, track-including girls and boys teams, from 5th grade on up. The kids learn Spanish from first grade on, and take computer classes starting in first grade also. They are taught grammar and diagramming sentences in English, and they learn Saxon math, which teaches a form of algebra from 2nd grade on. Our kids at NCS are welcomed at private schools and have no problem with challenging high schools, like Catholic Central and Country Day.

    My daughter will be attending a public high school, in the accelerated program.

    This is a great place to send your kids. Academically, socially, and morally, they will be taught as you would like them to be taught. It's a great foundation for the rest of their lives.

    This dealer sold me a Mercedes (used) and sold me a warranty with it. On the contract, the salesperson wrote "bumper to bumper warranty" and initialed it, at my request. Unfortunately, I soon found out that the air conditioning didn't work. I spent the next 3 summer months trying to get them to pay for the repair (it had to be done at the Mercedes dealer in Novi). When the Mercedes dealer called on the warranty, he found out it was "drive train only". 4 months later, I met with the general manager, showed him the paperwork, and he said he would only pay for 500.00 of it. My aunt then bought a car from Varsity-a new one-and they told her her financing was at 7%. When she got the first bill,it was at 17%!! She immediately refinanced through her own bank, but she was very unhappy. Two cheated family members is more than enough to tell me these people are not honest and not good. Don't ever buy a car from Victory-you'll regret it.

    Dr. Knapp is a professor at U of D dental school, and does conferences around the world teaching dentists how to do prosthodontics. There is no one better at what they do in the entire Detroit area. I would encourage you to call him if you need dentures or implants. He is the best, and very friendly and informative.

    David Goldstein is experienced, easy to get along with, friendly, and one of the best criminal lawyers in Ann Arbor. He is very much in demand, and handles felonies, misdemeanors, drunk driving, and any other criminal case. He is well respected by judges and often referred by other attorneys. Call him-you won't regret it.

    Daily rain helped me when I let my sprinkler system freeze-I had not flushed out my system (it is my first house) before winter, and it froze. They came out in the springtime, and for a very reasonable price, fixed the system. They also checked the watering areas and got me a new sprinkler head, all for less than 200.00. When they came out to close it, I had another job for them-the city had put in new pavement, and in the process, tore through my sprinkler pipe. Daily Rain closed my system, and fixed the broken pipe. They came all the way to Livonia both times without an extra charge. They are very professional and well dressed, like they're working at a golf course. I am really happy to have them working for me!

    This is a charismatic Catholic church, where the Holy Spirit is alive and Jesus is very much present in the hearts of parishioners. Father Ed is a fabulous priest and homilizer, and the people here are very involved-in Right to Life, in their faith, in Bible studies-and are very much Catholics. You will enjoy Mass here, and you will enjoy getting involved with a very active family of believers.

    I love to go here to get the chicken quesadilla. They make it special for me, on a corn tortilla, because I can't eat wheat. It is so tasty and fresh! They have 4 kinds of salsa and caffeine free diet pepsi, which is rare to find at any restaurant! Refills are free, and the price is affordable.

    We see a different person every time we go, so I can only say my daughter prefers the female PA. My onlyl problem with this doctor is that he challenged me on getting my daughter tested for a genetic condition that I have-despite my gastroenterologist telling me that she should be tested. He did the test when I insisted. Otherwise, they're very quick about getting you in-my daughter has only needed routine physicals.
