Northwest Independent School District Reviews

Fantastic school district! Teachers and administration care about their students and their success. Students are challenged without being overwhelmed. High schools offer a variety of opportunities for students to prepare for their future. Whether they choose to go to college or to pursue a career, they will be prepared with the skills necessary to be successful. The school district itself is growing rapidly because of the economic development happening in North Texas. I think the district is keeping up with it as best as possible and doing great at avoiding any over crowding, while not compromising on the quality of education. I HIGHLY recommend this district!

Northwest High School changed my life! The classes at Northwest were much more advanced and I had so many opportunities! I found that I loved to sing, act, and dance as well as work with power tools, build rockets, and design houses which led me to aspire to be an Architect. If I hadn't come to Northwest, I wouldn't be doing the career that I love and attending my dream school, Texas A&M University. I was able to get involved in choir and theater and I'm certain that if I wasn't able to experience fine arts, I would not have the lifelong friends, memories, and knowledge that I do today. I'm so thankful for my high school because going into college I feel so prepared for my major because of the STEM academy and I'm ready to go out and get involved because of the extra-curricular activities I did. I'm confident that because of Northwest I am the person I am today.
Our child attended school in this district from the second through the twelfth grade. Located in a high-growth region, the district appears to be adjusting to this challenge by building new schools in which to accommodate its expanding student population. Staff, officials and teachers are responsive and caring. A wide variety of courses and electives is offered. As NISD covers three counties, however, many students must travel to distant high schools in order to attend the programs of their choice. On the whole, I would recommend the district to families moving into the area.
