Northwest High School 5

As a former student, I can honestly say Northwest prepared me very well for college. They are way better than Colerain but because of the Colerain being larger and more well known because of their athletics we are often looked down upon. If you're trying to decide between Northwest and Colerain as far as academics choose Northwest. Their sports teams are also on the come up.

As a former student and current mother I feel as if NW is one of the better schools in the City. NW offers it's students a variety of college prep programs which gives students the oppurtunity to earn college credit in high school. My son was apart of the financial services class and it got my kid out of 2 intro business classes in college. And last year somewhere around 20 kids from NW competed in the BPA national leadership conference in Washington DC for the second year in a row. Also Coach Murphy has changed the football program around also which makes being an alumni even better.

I'm not sure about the teachers or the classes but I do know that the school fails in knowing the proper way to use the American Flag in their Homecoming Parade. The Colors are always FIRST in a Parade. There can be a police squad first for protection but after that the Colors should be next. The Jr. Navy ROTC did their job well. It's just where they were placed in the parade. Since they were the only Color Guard they should have been up-front.

Northwest is awesome because the teachers are great, and I get really good grades because of them. Mr. Bowling is doing a great job for the school. I'm very grateful to go here.

As a related service personnel serving students with disabilities, I would like to say that Northwest High School is striving to meet the needs of all students with learning challenges. Over the past three years, they have added 2 classrooms designed specifically to meet the needs of students with autism and one to assist students with severe behavioral challenges who are not being successful in the mainstream. They also continue to offer a continuum of services ranging from functional life skills to participation in college prep curriculum with inclusion support where needed. I am happy to be are part of the NWHS special education team.

Northwest is going straight up hill. Todd Bowling's the best thing to ever happen to that school. Athletics aren't the best, but Coach Neal has football coming around, and soccer will be top ten in the city this year. New basketball coach will be positive. And the student government is solid beyong belief, go Patty Dailey.

This school is doing quite well considering the facts that there is a new principal and a new uniform dress code.
