I go to school with people from all over the world (specifically 22 different countries). The opportunities that this school has offered me has made me so grateful and humble. Never in my life have I tried ice climbing, skiing, rock climbing, camping, zip lining, white water rafting before coming to Northwood. The skills I have developed here and experiences I have experienced at Northwood has impacted me so much. I will never forget my experience at Northwood and I am incredibly thankful and grateful.

I have had three children attend Northwood School and I cannot be happier with the experience! The friends they made at Northwood are still their closest friends. The teachers made such lasting impressions on each of them and they truly cared about their educational growth. Northwood also offered diversity that my children would have never experienced if they had stayed in their local school environment.
Teachers that are engaged in students well being, unique opportunities to try new sports and outdoor activities, friendships that last a lifetime and a balance between athletic and academics.
