This school is terrible. The principal is not very great when you see a problem going on. He tries to sweep issues under the rug. Even at such a young age sexual harrassment is a huge problem here and one that is being overlooked because they are trying to make the school look cleaned up. The teachers are very good however.

Northwest is a fantastic school. My daughter is so excited about going to school. When she gets off the bus, the first thing I ask her is ,'How was your day'? She responds by saying, 'Mom it was awesome'. I want to say thanks to the principal, assistant principal, faculty and staff for doing a wonderful job.

The principal is not a good principal. He lacks the understanding that I feel is necessary for any effective principal. The majority of the teachers are great, although there are a couple who really should retire or quit teaching because they are out of touch with how to deal with children. They have lost a few good teachers due to the bad administration.

At the begining of this year i was very worried about my daughter changing schools, but I should have never gave it a second thought . This past year has been great my daughter for the first time is ready to go to school every day last year I almost had to make her go but at northwest she can not wait to go back. She loves it and so do I. I have never seen a stafe that cares for the children the way they do at northwest this is truly a wonderfull school and should always be know that way!!! the involvement of the teachers and parents is great the teachers really want the parents to be involved with what goes on the there childs classroom. This is a wonderfull school I am just sorry that more poeple just dont know how wonderfull it is !!!!!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 North Carolina used End-of-Grade (EOG) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The EOG is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of North Carolina. Students must pass the grade 8 EOG test in order to graduate from high school. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the tests.
