Northwestern School Corporation Reviews

Northwestern is a great corporation with amazing staff and students. The expectations of our education are raised high, but with all the supporting teachers that we have, all students are able to achieve anything. Along with the excellent education comes the athletic program. Northwestern has an excellent athletic program as well. This program has fall, winter, and spring sports. Those sports are football, soccer (girls and boys), golf (girls and boys), tennis (girls and boys), volleyball, cross country, basketball (girls and boys), swimming (girls and boys), softball, and baseball. We have amazing coaches for all the sports that we offer. All together Northwestern High School is the perfect school for any student. The students are great as well. There is very little conflict between students. If there ever is the staff handles the situation extremely well. The safety of this school is beyond excellent. I never have a feeling that something could go wrong in this school.

Northwestern is an excellent school with great teachers and students. There are many opportunites for students to participate inside and outside of the classroom. If I could change anything, it would probably be the diversity within the faculty and the student body. However, because most of the students in the school live within the district, that is not a likely change unless the population within the district changes.
Small classes meant that I got the help from teachers when I needed it. Some sports team had coaches that played players based on friendships with their children rather than on skill, which was discouraging. Other coaches were really supportive of athletes. There are a few bad teachers that should not be there, but are because they have tenure. Other teachers are exceptional and really inspire and befriend students.
