I have experience working at many different school corporations throughout the state of Indiana. Northwestern High School is by far the best system I have ever had the privilege to be a part of. The staff and the administration are extremely dedicated, making sure their students are as prepared as they can be for college and life. Not only does this school create a positive learning environment, but the classes are challenging. I have never seen a school that challenges their students as much as Northwestern. The bar is set very high, and the students consistently and proudly reach it. As a faculty, Northwestern teachers and administration expect a lot from the students, and for the most part, the students perform at the level expected. Discipline, when needed, is handled professionaly and firmly. At the same time, these teachers are given the freedom to be caring and understanding in their classrooms - preferring to deal with issues in class rather than take other measures. I am proud to have served as a teacher at Northwestern, and I will take the memory of leadership, dedication, responsiblity, and creativity with me for the rest of my career. -formerly Ms. Reynolds

We are grandparents of two Northwestern Senion High School students. Northwestern (K-12) is a top-quality school. I have been very impressed with the quality of leadership from the outstanding administration and teachers. They set high standards for the students and the students show respect toward them. The academic programs require hard work and discipline, but the students are motivated to learn and are performing well. We recently attended the Christmas Band Concert which was very good!! We have heard from other parents of students in years past who attended Northwestern, and they too, brag on how great the Northwestern Schools are. Keep up the good work. Don and Janet Connelly

There is a large variation in how the students are treated. If a student cares about a class, the teacher will care about him. If he doesn't care, the teacher doesn't care either. Some teachers are of poorer quality, but some teachers are very excellent. There is a bit of a drug problem, and the students are known for their wild partying on the weekends. Of course, coaches look the other way when these problems arise.

Too much of a difference in how children are treated. The wealthy and popular aren't punished for things while the others are picked on. A rule at the school is if the parent of a student works or is affiliated with the school then the student doesn't have to be punished. I've worked as a sub for the school and have heard the negligent comments made by the teachers in back rooms and lounges. Too many students falling through the cracks. It's sad!
