Northwood gave me a sense of urgency. The things that i knew were vital for success were always completed on time with the help of my principle Mr.Shannon wall! He loves every kid the same despite race, background, or disabilities. He tries his hardest to make sure every student attending Northwood Highschool, leaves and remains a successful student as they matriculate through life !!
Northwood is overall a pretty good school. The teachers are very good at their job. The academic help is very good, and the activities the school pushes are very friendly and useful. Northwlod was definitely the way to go, with a very good highschool experience.
