Northwestern High School4

This is a large school, and yes, they do have some problems with some student's behavior (the bigger the barrel the more rotten apples). However, my daughter was able to take part in marching band, learn Italian, and take AP courses. She also had the best English teacher I had ever met. This school is like many others - it is what you make of it. A motivated student will do well. A slacker will get lost in the crowd. My daughter graduated and attends college, where she is doing well, in no small part due to the good instruction she received in high school.
Northwestern might not be the perfect school, but its near perfect ! school is clean, have many things for students with dissabilities. some teachers are strict but do a great job in teacher. This school is RECOMMENDABLE !
I noticed that a lot of people posted for this school a long while ago. My son was attacked in this school and is still being threatened with bodily harm by the same attackers. At first the school was telling us that they were going to take care of everything. Now, months later the attackers are still in the school, my son feels like the school cares nothing for him. Even though every single day he goes to the teachers, counselors and principal letting them know that they have brought guns and other weapons to school and it seems to go on deaf ears. A lot of the students have said that there are gangs in this school, but once asked about what they are going to do about the gangs and the only response that I was given was they (the gangs) need education too .
excuse me too everyone who is bring negative vibes to NWHS... it is not a bad school the kids are just hyper on school spirit.. i personally go there and teachers help me and the jim henson program is the best performin arts program(besides suitland) and i think parents should get more involved with that specific progam.... And for theremoreour school district needs help in general...
i have been observing the school and notes afew thingsthe staff is great and principal enforces the rules but some kids don't obey them like Uniforms. am greatly against uniforms but i think it saves money. in my year kids have school spirit . Kids also play too much (out of good conduct) but they are cool
