Northwest Community High School (9-12)1

I had written a review about my middle schooler that attends NW. I mentioned the middle school "lockdown". Now I will review the High School. The HS is much worse than the MS. There's a great majority of students that could care less about going to school and it shows by the way they carry themselves, but administration puts all of the students in the same box. Everyone is labeled. They are harassed by the staff over the uniform policy. They must attend school with probationers with the PO on site. The children are also being exposed to pepper spray. IPS Police like to spray it if there is an argument to prevent fights, but innocent students get sprayed also. The school needs to be shutdown! There isn't any educating going on, the teachers are distracted by having to constantly address class disruptions. At times, they stoop to the child's level by using profanity. There is a saying at NW, "get rid of all the bad ones and keep the good". Too bad, but I will be taking my 'good' away. THE SCHOOL NEEDS TO BE SHUTDOWN!!!
THIS IS THE WORST SCHOOL i have ever been in, the children are disrespectful cursing all the time and alot of ppl were getting bullied. I got bullied 24/7 because everyone knew i hated drama and fighting and that i was nice. Also, the teachers (50%) were rude and did not care. I reccomend not to go.
This is not a very good school. We transferred to Northwest after moving here to Indy. The staff is unprofessional (fist fighting with each other in front of students) for just an example. I've been hung up on by the registrar. There is a sense of "not caring" in the school. It seems that the teachers care more about 2:30 then the children's educations that they're paid to teach. Hopefully, next year the staff will be more caring, seeing how supposedly they are getting some new staff. I pray for the kids that attend this school, including my child. They need a safe place to learn where the teachers care.
I am pulling my daughter out and do NOT advise ANYONE to allow their kids to go here. WAY TO MUCH BULLYING and teachers nseeing it and do NOTHING. I have been in there many times over the bullying and my child has told every teacher she knows, the dean, the principle, the counclers, and the cops and NOBODY will listen!!!!!!
