As Northwestern is the only school I’ve ever attended since kindergarten, I guess I don’t have much to compare my experience here to. I would say I’ve always felt that the teachers here do their jobs to the best of their ability and that all-in-all my experience hasn’t been too bad. I’m pretty sure our student body is like 95% white but at least it’s not 100%. I wish I’d had the opportunities for classes they offer at some of the bigger schools in town, but I’ve made my way with what’s offered here. I’ve also made some of the best friends I’ve ever had here, so I can’t complain.

Nice place to study and learn. Very nice open, comfortable atmosphere that makes learning fun and productive. The only thing that bothers me is the lack of diversity this school has. besides this issue, this school is fantastic academically and has a nice coaching staff for basketball.
Northwestern is an outstanding school that provides every student with educational courses and fulfilling experiences. Northwestern offers numerous AP, Honors, and dual credit courses, but I think that the school can be improved by adding these advanced classes to the school so students can learn at a higher and more advanced level.
