At Northwest, starting in elementary I had a horrible experience; teachers would put me in speech programs simply because I was shy, just assuming that was what I needed. But in reality, it excluded me from everyone else. Woodridge middle school is undenyably, the best school in the district. The teachers are amazing and the way they teach is easy for most students. The staff helped students to mature for highschool. In highschool, the school is dirty and some teachers will teach you like you're a child. The few that treat you with respect like you're another adult, make the learning experience much smoother. There's a large array of classes, programs, and clubs which helps people to find friends. Northwest has college preperation, but it doesn't prepare you for anything. It's just "pick topics you like and pick jobs you like," no other preperation. If we had assistance on how to apply for FAFSA, applying to colleges, etc., it would make this application process much easier.

My experience with Northwest R-1 School district has been phenomenal for 13 years. The district puts their students safety and education first. The staff that I have encountered have always been kind and willing to help with anything. I have gone to Northwest R-1 School district since Kindergarten and I am now a senior. Throughout these 13 years, Northwest has given me many opportunities. Administration and the counselors are always ready to lend a helping hand when there are any questions about what the school offers. Not only do they give information about the different opportunities the school offers, but they promote them to allow all students the same chance to take opportunities.
Be wary of Administrations and specific teachers. They will cause problems and will "swipe it under the rug" with no concern for the student. Most of the teachers you will end up forming lasting relationships with, the theater program is fantastic, many sports and after school activities available, atmosphere for diversity will vary but is safe overall. Has programs for underprivileged families and will help where they can.
