The Northwest School Reviews

Northwest is an amazing place! It's a rare school that walks it's talk. It graduates kids who can speak, write, think and act. It's has one of the best college placement rates in the city. 27% of its kids are students of color and that doesn't even count the 60 international students. Nobody fall through the cracks at this place. Northwest inspires its student to have the courage to change the world!
Review The Northwest School
The school has a great atmosphere, everyone goes by their first name and takes care of the school as a community. They allow students to find their passions and really be equals to their peers. The teachers are really supportive, they really want you to succeed! Everyone is encouraged to push themselves and go outside of their comfort zone.
The Northwest School resides in the middle of Capital Hill, granting access to numerous resources nearby. The school itself just added a brand new athletics facility, theatre, and lunch room. The food is locally sourced and prepared fresh every day by a team of proffessional chefs. NWS is also know for its rigourus liberal arts curicculum, offering over 50 classes in the visual, dramatic, dance and musical disiplines. You address the teachers by their first name and they are always open to talk or give you help outside of class. My 4 years here have truly been incredible.
