I have a son in Kindergarten at Norhtwest and they have taught him a lot In this past year. I am really amazed at some of the things they teach at such a young age. I feel that they have gotten my child interested in subjects I couldn't get him to learn. His teacher sends news letters home every week to inform me of what will be coming in the next week. She also writes me letters when my son does good on something or if he is struggling with certain things. they have a very kind and concerned staff at Northwest Elementary and when I move out of the school district , I will definately drive my child to school no matter how far it may be.
