Northwest High School Reviews
Rating 3.7 out of 5 206 reviews
I had a great time in my four years at Northwest. I was a new student in the 9th grade and had an easy time meeting friends and joining activities. The teachers were nice, and I learned a lot about how to prepare for college. I was involved in band, which was a great program with a great director. My four years in band at Northwest were better than I could have hoped for, and it was an unforgettable experience.
Northwest is home to me. It is a place I feel so comfortable in, and if I had a choice, I'd stay forever if I could. High school is one of the best experiences a kid goes through and it is something that I looked forward too since I started school. Although my senior year was not supposed to go like this, Northwest is working hard to make it the best they can just like they do with everything else. Northwest provides a wonderful staff who dedicates all of their time to us kids, and we students are beyond grateful for them, without them we wouldn't be who we are today. My school made everyday a good day, everyone was close and we all feel like a family. No, this may not be the senior year we wanted, but I am making a promise to myself to make sure I strive this year and make the best of the situation. Northwest, I sincerely thank you for providing so much, a great education, and a family. I know I'll always be welcome back. Forever I will be a Mountie.
My school is a great school! It is a very family-oriented school where everyone most likely knows everybody. It's a place where I can not only see my friends but even get along great with my favorite teachers.
