Northwood doesn't really have a handle on the bullying that is going on, even if students tell them. This year however, they have gotten rid of some of the teachers and replaced them with hard working teachers.

So for the most part I enjoyed the friends I made and the activities my school has held. I do appreciate my caring and understanding teachers that has helped me accomplish so much as well as keeping me motivated to not give up. I would like to change how many students get treated and the school not doing much about it.
Over the 6 year of attendance here it seems like all of the teachers who actually care for there students are pushed out by the administration. So for my senior year we have a lot of new teachers that don't know what they are doing. Besides that I've enjoyed it, especially my shop classes which I try to spend as much time as possible in.
