Exceptional, caring teachers and great leadership and administrators! Northwestern not only has STEM education in all schools, they have a fantastic STEM preschool as well! I would not consider sending my kids anywhere else!

This place was the best place for my children to grow and learn from. The community is amazing! FFA program continues to grow! Everyone feels loved!
They place a lot of emphasis on programs such as STEM, robotics, teaching, business, etc. They give you a lot of different areas to explore, and while the school places a lot of importance on sports they don’t neglect the art programs (like choir, art, band, theatre, foreign language). They do take offense if kids decide that doing their junior/senior years they want to go off campus to a nearby college.
