Northwest High school is a great school that provides an experience beyond teaching and learning new things. The faculty treats students like there at home and they go out their way to help them. Northwest High school is really a good school to attend not only for academics but also for athletics as we participate in the south western Ohio Conference in a Division one bracket!

It made me feel comfortable because it's a small close knit family. Everybody pretty much knows everybody. The community has each others back when in need. I'm glad to say, I'm a Northwest High School Alumni! Go Knights!
When I first started at Northwest High School, I was intimidated. I was afraid to try new things because I was terrified of not being accepted. When I got there, I saw that the whole school was diverse. There was a large range of clubs and activities; so much that I wasn't afraid I wouldn't be able to find something. Their diversity club and Student Senate there has made me feel like I have a voice and I can speak up for others. I was able to leave my comfort zone and learned how to be an advocate for others.This school has offered me so many opportunities.
