I think Northwest Elementary needs a lot of work. They are not consistent in how children are reprimanded, 1 child will get a 6 day suspension and the next will get 1 day, both of which did the same act. They do not know how to handle situations at school, so they will send it home to the parents to deal with, a day or two after something has happened. I am very disappointed with Northwest and that is why my child will no longer be attending this poorly run school.

Northwest Elementary School has the best teachers! The teachers and staff truly care for all the children everyday, always! During this age children are at an age that support and guidance is such an importance aspect. The teachers help with many hands on activities, trips when we can afford them, activities at the school for families. Northwest Elementary is a wonderful contributor to the community of students in the Northwest School District.

I personally feel Northwest Schools are wonderful. My children have attended since Pre-school and I wouldn't have it any other way! GO MOUNTIES

Northwest Elementary is a good school. Since the community is made up of smaller towns, there is not one central meeting place. This creates no feeling of community. Therefore, they struggle with getting bonds passed. With the lack of funds comes lack of bussing, staff, etc. The teachers are caring and have gone out of their way for my three children. Charter schools aren't the answer. The lesson doesn't need to be taught to the school, but to the community.

This is a school that has many problems. They are severely overcrowded and with that comes MANY students left behind. Some student have to stand on the bus because there isnt enough seats. They also let the kids bully and abuse other students with really no consequences. I would not recommend this school. Try a charter school and teach these public schools a much needed lesson, our kids deserve better!
