Northwest is a AMAZING school. All of my siblings graduated there and i just graduated this year. We've all been there since Pre-K and the staff members are really nice. Honestly, I have seen some troubles with students there but that's just a few and they were well taken care of. Even though they weren't "good" students the staff and teachers treated just the same. And there academics are actually pretty high. The teachers prepared us really well for our STAR/TAKS test. Every year, pretty much everyone passes the test. So if your looking for a Elementary School i HIGHLY recommend you going to this one. Everyone there is REALLLLY AMAZING. In that school it isn't always about learning learning learning, The staff members are really funny so they put humor in their teacher which is really good since kids shouldn't be sitting around and you know just be bored to death. I'm going to miss that school :(
