Northwest Local School District (Canal Fulton) Reviews

Northwest has many rules that make no sense and the rules that do actually make sense are not followed or enforced. Cell phones are not supposed to be used and yet they always are and the dress code is usually only enforced on the girls. Teachers don't want to work and that teaches the students that they shouldn't have to do work, either. Parents are involved in a positive way. There is a lot of emphasis on football and not any of the other sports and though there are good facilities, they are only updated if it benefits the football team. Safety at each of the schools has improved, but is still not enforced very well.

I am currently attending Northwest Local High School, and there are many things I do like about my school. The teachers are, for the most part, very nice and helpful. They make sure that their students are prepared for the testing at the end of the year and the next course in that subject. The buildings are very well-kept and clean. And, there are so many opportunities to get involved in groups, clubs, sports, choir, band, and whatever else you are interested in. But, there is one thing that I would like to see changed. A lot of stress is put on the younger students regarding the standardized testing. I understand that testing matters for graduation once you are taking high school classes, but I do not think that kids as young as seven or eight years old should have so much pressure on them to do well on the standardized tests. Overall, I am quite happy with many aspects of Northwest Local School District.
Northwest High school provides an average education. Many of the teachers show honest care in the students academics and home lives. Principal Larry Tausch has done an excellent job turning the school around for the better.. However, for many students if you do have trouble keeping up in academics not much well tutoring is offered.
