My experience with Northwest high school was very challenging in the beginning because I had moved from Chicago, IL and was a new face within the environment. I didn't make friends immediately, I actually got into it with few of my peers only because I came from another city and needed to adjust to being the new kid around. Overall, the teachers were pretty helpful and nice. When I joined the football team, that's when doors started opening for people to like me. I gained popularity, and was pretty excited. I would struggle with my classes because of this, once I got into my senior year my focus was to graduate and take the lessons from my mother so that I can succeed. Here I am now, I graduated and ready to move forth in my life with my next accomplishment and that is graduating college.

I was pretty involved throughout my high school experience and every teacher that I was involved with was very helpful, learned a lot and had a lot of fun. It was always a mixture of having fun but getting work done. Every student connecting with everyone else in the club/organization and that is what made everything successful. I would go back to this high school and relive every moment! I thoroughly enjoyed this experience.
Going to Northwest for my four years was a great experience. Throughout those four years, the school managed to make a lot of improvement. The teachers and administrators here are great, and the environment is very welcoming.
