This school is really good at spending money and pumping money into its failing football team. I went to the Northwest School District from Kindergarten to 12th grade and I am severely unimpressed. Most of my academic successes are thanks to me keeping my advisors on schedule and on task. Our guidance counselors aren't wonderful at giving advice on college and the teachers are very hit or miss. There are about 5-6 good teachers in the entire high school building and the related arts teachers aren't paid attention to enough leaving them with outdated books and computers.

Northwest High School has given me many memories. I have built many friendships throughout my years here. Northwest has such a loving community and I am very thankful to be a part of that. Northwest just finished building an amazing complex for our football team and also a utility fieldhouse that other sports can use during the winter to improve their skills. I am very thankful to have this great opportunity and to call myself a Mohawk.
Northwest High School did not prepare me as well as they should have for college, or being an adult in general. However, there are few teachers there who actually care about students' grades along with their well being. It felt like Northwest valued sports over everything else.
