This school is very small and amazing when it comes to making friends. Everyone knows each other and has known each other most of their lives. It has definitely made my high school experience something worth remembering in the future. Although the lack of extracurricular activities denies many students the diverse talents they may or may not be able to experience.

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.
