Northwestern Senior High School Reviews

What I like about Northwestern is the teacher's attitudes towards student success. The teachers push students to be the best they can be and are very helpful toward guiding them. I would like to see some more diverse after-school activities put into place. At the current moment the main activities are sports, band, and drama club. Although we are a low-budget school, I would have found it very beneficial to be able to include myself in activities with my peers.

The food was the best part because guess what my high school had....HEINZ KETCHUP! Not some cheap off brand of ketchup, oh no. They had the real deal! That was all I ever truly wanted from my school years, because before I went to this school, I went to one that had horrible ketchup. The Marching Band was my family and made each day worth living.
I have had very positive experiences with Northwestern Senior High school. The teachers are very good and dedicated to helping the students and preparing them for academic sucess. The school offers a great curriculum with a variety of focuses from art to agriculture.
