Northwest Middle School Reviews

Most of the teachers were able to get the students engaged in the topic. Teaching skills were very effective and understanding. Any student can trust any teacher. All of the students are able to get beyond adequate knowledge and understanding of a topic. Science teachers were able to use every day examples and make us participate in fun, interesting experiments. Social studies teachers made history fun to learn and made it palpable of their interest to engage us in the full knowledge we could receive. Math teachers created fun projects to keep us engaged in mathematics.

The extracurricular activities in this school is varied. It has many sports people enjoy to play. A very committed club was the volleyball team. They won most of their games and were very serious about the game. A fun club that was available was Japanese Club. It was a club for students interested in Japanese culture, anime, Japanese writing and food. Cross Country was a popular option for many people. The teacher in charge was very committed and enthusiastic.
Not a lot of bullying happens in this school. But, when it does, teachers take it very seriously. They take some class time to talk about the consequences of bullying. They have metal detectors and x-rays for book bags. Security and health measures are very serious in this school.
