I am a graduate of Northwestern. I loved the experiences I had while attending K-12. I have gone on to graduate from a university and now work in Social Services in another state. I believe that my teachers, except for two exceptions, were great. I also had the support of my family. Teachers can only do so much if a student does not have parents stepping up and making sure that their children are learning. My own child has attended much larger schools than I. He has had more options in class choice than I had but not a better education than I recieved. He has had to worry about things in a large school that I never thought about attending Northwestern. You have to make the best of what you are given.

I am a former student and the decision to go to college or leave Mendon is entirely up to the person. I was given all the tools necessary to further my education and go on my own in the real world. I am now a college graduate and teach college level courses. Obviously, they did something right! The teachers all made sure we had these tools before pursuing the next grade. I, however, was not hesitant to ask questions and my parents did work with me at home and had me read to them or they read to me every night. The school experience is what you make of it and only you can decide to learn as much as you can. The teachers are not the parents and it takes both to prepare your child for the next

For the record the last two that wrote about Northwestern School district are full of it. Education starts at the home. Period. I went to these schools and am now a very successful businessman in Texas. To say that most folks will never leave the area is merely a choice they make not what kind of education they have been afforded. As parents we need to work with our children and help them learn what they are having issues with at home. To many times we expect the teachers to raise our kids for us. I recommend that if you are truly concerned about your children's education, get involved and stop finger pointing at those fine individuals that have chosen as their profession to help grow the minds of our children. Go Eagles and thanks for a wonderful education......Signed, Doug Stufflebean (willing to let my name be shown)

I believe that most of the teachers are not worried about the students actually learning anyhting. i have 4 children who attend this school. one who is in 8th grade and does not know how to multiply. he failed math last year and is repeating 7th grade math this year but the teacher does not have the students do any homework for practice. when asked to have my child put in a class for extra help, i was told this would happen if the teacher had the extra time. apparently she doesn't have the time because he has only been 2 or 3 times. another situation is when i had a child in 1st grade i had to tell the teacher to hold my child back because he couldn't read. so can you see how we could have a problem with the teachers ?

I am not a parent, I am a former student. I can honestly say that the students of Northwestern have been severely shorted a good education. I am one of the very few students that have went on to get post graduate education, this education has given me a unique perspective on what Northwestern offers. Most of the students at NW will never leave the immediate area, much less the state. The education that they recieve in Mendon may be the closest thing they will ever get to understanding the way the rest of the world works.
