Northwestern School District Reviews

Northwestern School District is located in a small town and we are all one big family. I moved to northwestern my sophomore year and it was the best decision I have ever made. The teachers and administration were always so helpful and outgoing to ensure success of each student. Smaller class sizes increased opportunities for me and the many clubs and activities made it easier to be more involved. My senior year I was apart of the class council, cheerleading squad, student council, art club, pjas, and yearbook club and I created many lifelong friends. There was always something to look forward to each day at school. I never thought i would miss school until the day I graduated and it all became surreal.

Everyone at Northwestern is very welcoming and you can find someone you can get along with anywhere there. Recently, the music and arts program has really taken off and incorporated itself into every aspect of the school, which is refreshing to see.
I have had a wonderful experience at Northwestern. The teachers are wonderful, I feel prepared for college, and there is abundant opportunity for student involvement. The Ag department is the best in the state. The Music teachers are wonderful; there are not only classes offer but also auditioned groups including Handbills, Forte singers, Jazz Band, and a Guitar and Strings club. The drama department has opportunities to act, direct, stage manage, and travel to see shows. The sciences are heavily pushed and have higher level classes such as Physics and AP Environmental Science. The lunches are high quality and the school provides free dinners three days a week. My main complaints are safety concerns. The spotlights that the drama club uses are from the 1970's and are a fire hazard. The stage lights aren't much better. These facilities need replaced. The student body isn't a diverse group and there is no sense of unity.
