Northwood Middle School Reviews

As a former student of Northwood (I am now an incoming high school sophomore) I can say that my experience was fairly positive. Sure, there were moments where I didn't feel the most supported at this school, but for the most part the faculty are very respectful and understanding. This school is very diverse, with many opportunities for a wide variety of students, even shy ones such as myself! The academics weren't all that challenging, however I feel as though bullying could be watched and handled a bit closer. Nevertheless, I feel as though this school is a good choice for any incoming seventh-grader.

A great school, could be a way better school in terms of facilities if Kent was a better school district. Otherwise, really good teachers. Not much bullying due to school's diversity.
Northwood was a really great experience. Being a senior now, I’m glad that I was able to get my start there.
