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!

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.
They put a big emphasis on STEM classes and careers which many surrounding schools do not. There are many opportunities to succeed; it’s up to the student to take advantage of them.
