The education opportunity is above average, the lack of diversity creates a climate of low tolerance and closed mindedness. The administration prefers to ignore problems and preserve image. The corporation has potential if the administration and school board were more open to world views, and progressive ideas. The corporation school board and administration lack diversity in leadership, which I feel strongly to be part of the problem.
No school can please everyone, but this one is the very best in the area. New students are flocking to Northwestern Elementary, which means that many others believe it is as great as do I. I'm proud that my children attend here!
This school is an Indiana Four Star school. Student and teacher performance is high -- check Indiana test scores! Teachers, parents, and students all seem to get along very well and enjoy working together. A partnership with Indiana Wesleyan University enables future teachers to learn from the best and to give extra help to students who need it. The school is wireless, has the latest in technology, including a TV studio and two 30 station wireless laptop carts. Teachers use school provided laptops rather than overhead projectors. Tremendous parent involvement through PTO and a strong volunteer program means wonderful input from the community and families. There are very few discipline problems and the school is quite safe. Northwestern Elementary is a wonderful school!
