One of my favorite things about Northwestern is the campus. We are very lucky to have such a beautiful view outside our windows everyday, and it makes up for the cold weather. The teachers and students here all work really hard and the AP and honors level classes are really competitive in a good way. The school climate is overall healthy, and we have a good rivalry with the other school in the area, which makes sporting events and other things pretty exciting.

There are innumerable ways to be involved in extracurricular activities. Our clubs, activities, and societies include: Art Club, Chess Team, Cycling Club, Debate Team, Drama Club, Envirothon Team, FFA (Ag Ed), Green Team, Hiking Club, Math Team, Mentoring, Mock Trial, National Honor Society, R.E.A.C.T., Red Army/Pep Club, Robotics, SADD, Student Council, Student Senate, and Yearbook. In general, the clubs meet once a week to two weeks; however, it differs from club to club. For example, the Biking Club meets (weather permitting) every Saturday for two-three hours. Also, Student Council holds a meeting once/twice a month and also plans and organizes various school events throughout the year. In every activity, there is at least one adviser who is a faculty member that supervises the club. The clubs are mainly student-run. In addition to faculty being involved, they are also available every Monday and Thursday after-school until 3:00. During this time, their doors are open for students for come in and work one-on-one with the teacher to receive individual attention. Moreover, after-school activities can also include sports teams. Overall, my school offers an immense variety of activities and ways for students to stay involved. Because of the diversified opportunities, this allows for students to connect with each other and become active participants in the school community. Thus, this fosters a more dynamic as well as interactive environment.
At Regional #7 there are many different activities and clubs that are offered. They are varied between clubs and also sports. My daughter is not a "sports" person but was able to find a group of kids and activities that suited her. The art program offers many different classes along with an after school art club. The theater department was large and the parents were very supportive of the kids and the productions. One thing that could be improved upon is the college prep. I feel that not a lot of time and energy was put into the process of applying to colleges and should have started earlier than senior year. If we had more information throughout the high school years we would have been able to plan better and not feel on our own to navigate the process.
