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!

My experience with Eaton High School has been partially fulfilling to say the least. They're very advanced and have great, new facilities and refreshing ways of learning. Although, they don't always let their students express themselves in ways that they desire. They ask for school spirit and then restrict the ways that students have for doing so. In addition, the staff is not always as nice and concerned as they could be. Sometimes they show carelessness and blow off the needs that students feel are important. My overall experience with Eaton High School can be rated a 4 because they do have things advantageous to the students, but there are other small details that should be improved.
One of the things I like about Northwest Independent School District is our focus on the arts. Northwest includes theatre, choir, band, orchestra, dance, photography, media, etc. We excel in these areas as a district and receive heavy support from all administrators and facilitators.
One thing I would like to change about Northwest is the diversity in the district. Among the existing students and faculty, it would be nice to see more diversity throughout including gender diversity, involvement diversity, and racial diversity.
