It is a very diverse school. No, I was not a top 10 student. Matter of fact, I was not even a good student but I did learn a lot from the school and the clubs they offer applies so much to me once I continue my education in college. One of my favorites club is called Thrive Club. I got to meet students from different countries, religions, background, and different political views that made me an open minded person. This club helps me to become more diverse that I now can interact better with different people in college, work, or anywhere else I go.

My experience at Northwest High School has been some of the best four years of my life. Most people think of Northwest and they think of bad students, and a horrendous curriculum. My time at Northwest has given me the chance to meet amazing people of different cultures, beliefs, and ethnic backgrounds. It is such a diverse community filled with faculty that care and make sure everyone feels included and important. The opportunities that Northwest has given me have defiantly made an impact on me. From going to Washington D.C., and even investigating a fake crime scene. My time as Northwest has been great and life-changing and it is sad that it is all coming to an end so soon, it feels like just yesterday I was starting my freshman year and now I am graduating. But, I know that my journey has just started and Northwest has done an absolutely amazing job at preparing me for life after high school.
I've been going to northwest for almost four years. Overall I have somewhat enjoyed my experience being here. through sports i met many great people who make this school what it is. These amazing people fill the school with there positive energy. While going to northwest I've made a family. Another great thing about this school is some of the teachers I've had. These teachers have helped me and continued to inspire me through-out my high school career. Just like any school in my community, a school also comes with its negatives. At times this school can feel pointless and as if we were spending too much times no getting the education we needed. I believe a big source of this problem was the lack of resources provided to each student. Overall I truly believe Omaha Northwest gave me a great experience.
