Northwest Area School District Reviews
Great Teachers! One on One talk with teachers, small classes. Lots of sports offered, also tons of clubs offered. Science and music departments are very amazing, teachers are extremely helpful and care about students careers after high school.
Northwest Area School District is a rural school encompassing multiple small towns, such as Huntington, Shickshinny and Hunlock Creek. The teachers and students are friendly and welcoming. The school is very safe. It employs a constable and all doors are locked and outside doors are tinted.
Northwest is a very small school that takes a lot of pride in their students. One positive thing about Northwest is its easy to feel like you have a second home. The staff goes above and beyond to connect with their students and make them feel special in their own way. Small schools like Northwest are often overlooked, which is a shame because I could not imagine attending anywhere else. There is not much I would want to change about Northwest, other then maybe investing in an air conditioner and tastier lunches haha.
