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.
For a small school, Northwestern offers an amazing academic atmosphere where learning is a top priority. The small class sizes helps keep the students and teachers connected.
