First, I believe Northwest ISD is a great district to be in! One of the things I like is their technology and most of the teachers that I've had has been excellent. The thing that I would change is construction. I wish they would not do construction during the school year. It is very distracting.

My experience at Northwest ISD has been very good. Growing up in the district I have seen many changes over the years. With our district growing every year and more opportunities being made possible. This would include the district up to date technology. Making the working environment very accessible and convenient in everyday activities. Also, Most teachers of Northwest ISD are very welcoming and kind always. They are always ready to help a student in need of academically and, in life. This concludes that I am very fortunate to be in a district where the students are the priority.
I've grown up in Northwest ISD! I've loved it here! Most of the teachers are very kind and welcoming. The schools are clean. School lunches are gross unless you are eating from a restaurant, but aren't they all. Overall, this is a very good district, and I've loved going there!
