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.

The quality, teaching styles, knowledge and interest that the teachers have at Northwood High School is awesome. They genuinely care about us students and how our progress goes in their classrooms. They are always there lending a helping hand after hours and try to be available when they're called upon.
I honestly think that Northwood could improve a lot and each areas in the school; we do have a lot of school spirit to say we're such a small school but we need more improvement. Such as, more clubs in the school and also more after school learning activities instead of just sport activities. We also could use a JROTC program for students that are interested in the Army or the Navy.
