North Wood High School Reviews

This school is amazing! The community is incredible, not only at the school, but also in the WaNee township. Everyone is so kind and compassionate! The teachers at this school genuinely care about their students and want to help. The best thing about this school is their mission to for their students to achieve excellence not only in academics, but also outside of the classroom! Another awesome thing about Northwood is the majority of the staff and students are Christians, which makes it easy to live out my faith while attending school. Also the coaches are amazing! They are fully committed to the sport and also are willing to help you with problems you may have either on or off the field.

I absolutely LOVED NorthWood High School! The teachers are incredible and genuinely care about their students, while still taking the time to fully equip and prepare students for college. While the school isn't the most diverse school ever, both in race and religion, our teachers make an effort to inform of us the world around us and don't keep us inside of a bubble. The school also has an incredible reputation in academic teams and sports, with many students taking college classes and playing sports. As a matter of fact, I graduated with 13 valedictorians, and of those 13, all had at least 15 college credits and 8 of them played a sport at some point in high school.
I’ve been a student at NorthWood for three years now and have had a relatively good experience. I am involved in the Academic Teams and the Choir. There is a strong push for academic excellence and great teachers to facilitate the best learning environment possible. The school is greatly improving the facilities by building new science and music wings as well as a new athletic center. However, due to a recent change in the administration, the new superintendent is trying to change the traditions and processes of the school. I don’t like these moves and many of my fellow members of the student body do not appreciate them either. The faculty and student body deserve better than that.
