NACS was a great school system. I feel lucky to have attended such a great school. The teachers were dedicated to student success and were very personable, and the facilities are in great shape. There is a wide variety of extracurricular activities for students to participate in, and even the cafeteria food was good. My teachers really pushed me to do my best in my classes. I entered college with a great set of skills for success, and I know that Northwest Allen helped me develop and recognize my skills.

The Administration is not nice or pleasant to deal with. The teachers can be kind and enjoyable sometimes, and other teachers can be awful and make you question why they even became a teacher. The diversity is pretty bad here. Northwest Allen County is primarily white. My school has been trying to attempt to raise college readiness but the have only been doing mediocre attempts, however the sports here are always great. A lot of people do sports and the sports teams go very far every season.
Northwest Allen County Schools is the best school district in Fort Wayne for any kid to attend. They have wonderful faculty, who are a blessing to have teaching kids. The students are very nice and respectful, especially of the special needs kids, which is a kind is respect that can’t be found in other schools. The academics offered can’t be compared with the surrounding districts, such as Fort Wayne Community.
