I absolutely hated this school between the years of 2007-2010 . I believe the school has gotten better since when I was there.

I am happy to no longer have my child at this school. It is not a safe environment. The principal is terrible and the secretary can be unpleasant to deal with. I went to the principal with a concern about bullying (agressive behavior) and being in a safe environment.. The school dont care and i had a lady councilors ( with dreads) she acked like a former gang member) she had students that she was close to and said she understand fighting sometimes) what the heck! I found out doors had been left open and teachers didn't carry keys. When I asked about the consequence for a child that pushed a child in the hall way or a child that threw things in the class and hit another student, she didn't give me a response that answered my question. I found out both children where allowed in the classroom soon after the events. The school tolerates aggression in the classrooms and the hall ways are like play grownds, My child is also happy to be in new schools. If you live in the city, don't send your child here, pay for private school if you can but Nothwestern High Is by far the worst high in the WORLD!

They are willing to get involved to make sure the student suceeds. Teacher involvement with the partent is excellent.

This is my daughter's first year at Northwestern. She absolutely loves this school. I am happy that the school is making physical changes. The students need to make changes also. Once students realize the quality of education the school will be much better. Students need to practice self control. The school needs more parent involvement. I am happy with the staff. They have a busy and difficult job which I have come to appreciate.

I am a 2006 graduate of Northwestern and i am going on to attend goucher college with a full scholarship. Northwestern is a great school with great teachers. The problem is that the students aren't dedicated and determined to learn. If the school had more funds to work with we may see better results. I was a student that loved to learn, but was classified by the school i attended.

I also agree this school is the worst in the district. The discipline is terrible. Numorous students walking the halls. The bathrooms are the most unhanded Ive ever seen in my life. This school needs a change.

This school is one of worst in the district. The special education dept. is not up on new learning disabilities with children. Most of the teachers need additional training with inner city children. And the student teacher ratio is not 17 to 1; it's 25 maybe 30 to 1. I was a graduate from this school in 1978 and the overall moral of the school is zero. Children need to be in a school where they can express themselves and feel as though they are a part of the school no matter what level of learning they might be at.
