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 love North Wood High School is in a conservative community and the teachers their truly care for the students. They go the extra mile to help students succeed. North Wood offers many duel credit courses to help shave time and expense off of college, and even their general education classes challenge and develop students into responsible future citizens. The smaller school size makes it so that learning can be more personalized from class to class and student to student. I feel well prepared to start college and a life in the real world.
I felt as if all the school cared about were the wealthy students and furthermore, the students who were in athletics. Most teachers were invasive and it seemed that they only cared for themselves rather than the students. On the positive side, some teachers (however, very few) I found that I learned much with them. Unfortunately, many teachers see themselves as higher up than the students and due to this, the less wealthy students were unfairly treated.
