Northwest is an awesome school. The teachers care about students and the school is safe. Students are well prepared for college after attending Northwest Cabarrus High.

NCHS is a great high school. Older buildings, but the staff keeps up with it as best as possible! I'll mention this because it is not under "Programs & Cultures". Northwest Cabarrus has a fantastic agriculture program along with unique facilities. These facilities include a barn, equipped with stalls and horses, pastures, a goat and sheep barn, an aquaculture building, 2 greenhouses and a nursery, an arboretum, rabbits, and a tractor shed full of equipment. It is a fantastic program and a shame that it was left off of this website. I definitely recommend the ag classes!

Since my daughter started her freshman year here, we have been utterly disappointed. The last review stated that the staff have the attitude that they are always right and I agree with this assessment. They are completely out of touch with special needs issues and safety. The teachers and administration say and email all the right things, but do not follow through with their promises. It's all about covering for themselves and their jobs. They need to stop trying to place all students in their idea of a box and learn that individuality is very important to a teen's self-esteem, learning environment, and academic processing.

Since I have been here I have heard nothing, but negative things about Northwest Cabarrus High School. I usually don't go by what I hear, but what I have experienced has not been positive. I would not recommend NW Cabarrus HS to any parent who is looking for a school with well rounded staff who knows how to deal with children of all backgrounds. They have "The Staff is Always Right" policy which is unfair to the the students. Our students are our future, lets build them up not tear them down.

I love my school, the teachers, and our amazing new barn! We have almost every club and class that you can think of, and the teachers/administrators really care about me and my future. There are times for fun and times to get down and serious. I know I have a highly successful career ahead of me.

This school is well organized and well run. While they work with parents on academics and student discipline, they do tolerate dangerous behavior (they do not allow small incidents grow into larger ones). They have lots of programs for academically gifted students, as well as interesting programs like horticulture and animal science (they have a greenhouse and farm animals - and this is the suburbs? :-) No complaints here.

I loved goig to this school. I always had fun, especailly at football games. I was a cheerleader and walked down that little path in the woods to the feild. I always thought that there was excellent parent envolvment when I went. The extracurricular activities were amazing. I love this school so much that I wish that my daughter could go.
