the best because even though most students live below the poverty level, we find our way and do well in school because we want to be productive citizens, and we want a better, and safe life for our families

Northwestern is a good school that does offer many oppurtunities. Though some people don't recognize the schools potentialsometimes. The students here are really intelligent though some dont't either realize it or are being led by the streets. The teachers i have had so far have pushed me and my fellow peers to do our best and not anything less. We have great alumni support that are very proud. Our PAVAC program is great and alot of hard work. Our Medical Magnet is exceptional you can excell in learning in different medical field such as nursing, vetinarian,forensicsand detistryy. We Bulls love to support our sports especially our football team,basketball, and track and field. One day the world will see what Northwestern is capable ofand not just what happens around us.

I love Miami Northwestern because it is the school of opportunity. No matter the odds against most of us that attend, the doors are always open for us to come in and be apart of a caring family. Our principal understands us and support us at all times. Mr. Hankerson and the staff of MNW makes a difference in the lives of students...well they did for me, KeUndra

I am currently a student at miami northwestern. Our principal Dr. Charles Hankerson puts his heart into bettering our school and test scores. He and most teachers are very devoted to the student body. The medical magnet program is a very excellent opportunity for anyone interested in the medical field. The administrative staff handles discipline appropriately; misconduct is not acceptable here. Yes our sports depatment is just about excellent, however that is not the epitome Miami Northwestern. I would know. Im an AP student (4 classes), vice-president of the National Honor Society, and excel in balancing my extracurricular activities.

The quality of academic programs at MNW is great and I feel the extra curricular activities are just as great. It's unfortunate I can't same the same on the level of parent involvement. That is the overall problem. Not just for the involvement as parent within the school but a lack of involvement with their children as a whole. As a parent I'm not saying that about all but most of the kids are lacking this. I believe this is why we have so many failing young people at MNW. Can't just blame it on the school. The school provides the education and should be extended by the parent as well.

My child graduated from MNW 2000 she has gone on to get a Masters Degree. I know that besides the commitment from her father and I. MNW has laid a positive foundation for her. As a parent I am a firm believer that it not just up to the school but up to the parent,caregivers,etc. to concrete that foundation in order build something beautiful.

The school has no particular safety when it comes to violence and parents do not get involved with their children. They should enclosed the area and post up the school with police and increase tutoring sessions for these children so they can suceed.

Northwestern is an experience to remember. However, it gets so much bad publicity that no one talks about the outstanding magnet programs in the arts and health care. As far as the FCAT goes, enough help is provided for students to pass. It is up to the individual to take the test seriously. My friends and I have all passed and went on to do great things at great schools such as FAMU, UM, USF, UCF, FSU, Emory, ect.. I had the best four years at Northwestern, it enstilled character, leadership, and loyalty in me. But being in a rough enviroment gives people negative thoughts, but what matters is what you get from Northwestern.

Northwestern was the best thing that could have ever happen to me. I graduated with the elite class of 2003. I'm now attended the University of South Florida where I planned to get my degree in elementary education. I can honestly say these were my best years of school.

Miami Northwestern Senior High School mainly focuses on sports. The athletics department receives ample funding, while the Advanced Placement classes do not. Much attention circulates around the FCAT, a very easy standardized test, leading to unprepared students in college. Without emphasis on the SAT's, AP's, or ACT's, the school is likely to get worse. Though the majority of the faculty is good due to training, the students will still remain the way they are because of the stagnant neighborhood the school is located in. This inner-city school has potential, but it will take much time before a turn-around.

Miami Northwestern is a great school. The principal has really shaped this school up. The reason why scores have been so low is that they dont have proper resources to educate the children. They focus so much on FCAT that they are not learining the skills essential for college. Its a real tragedy because anyway you put it, the children are suffering!
