Anyone can say anything about Northwestern, but to catch the true essence, you have to go there. I am a student that is in the 11th grade and has been going there since the 10th. The school has the greatest staff anyone could ask for. everyone knows your name and your family. The security is great. I am in an enviroment were I am safe (that's why I left Central). But all in all, Northwestern would be #1 on my list.
