My experience with Northwest Classen has been nothing but growing and enjoyable during this whole ride. Northwest Classen has all the fundamentals of an average high school in the state. I myself enjoy our athletic teams, even though our facilities are no where near the best . The diversity of our administration and students is through the roof, and it’s a blessing to be involved in it. So much character and passion walk through the NWC hallways daily. Our student involvement has increased over the last few years, which is great to witness because I have a since of involvement. As we all continue to choose our paths further into life, I will always feel blessed to be apart of the knight culture !

It is a decent school. There's a lot of diversity in it which is always great, but not everything about this school is perfect. The food is horrible. Some of the teachers are actually pretty chill and nonchalant, and great teachers. Others... probably not much. The class variety is excellent and some students are nice while others aren't very nice.
The school has a well diverse environment. ESL students are treated equally as the rest of the students. There is programs to help those students adjust too. Friendly teacher and staff are a common thing, there isn't really a rude teacher who doesn't care about their students. Personally never had a problem with bullying or seen it happen to any other students. Academics could be better but it is as much as you'd expect.
