Northwest High School 5

Northwest has definitely made a difference in the past year, a remarkable one. I am nothing but proud to call myself a Texan. So glad Mr. Childress was able to take the position as the principal of our school. We have become a true family, and along with that we have hard working and dedicated teachers. Our scores are amazing and everyone strives to do the best they can. ALL IN FOR LIFE!

Mrs. Brenner is very professional and no-nonsense. These are great qualities for a high school principal.

Northwest High School has a fantastic band program. The STEM academy offers an outstanding learning environment for the students. The parent involvement makes the school even better. I am very pleased with the school.

I am a senior at Northwest High School. If there is one thing I can honestly say about the four years i have been there is that its an amazing school. I have never had a problem with drugs or fights at this school. It may be huge and have a lot of people but the teachers and staff are amazing, and make you feel you are an individule and not just a number. I have struggled a lot the past two years and was told i wasnt going to graduate, but thanks to the teachers and administrators i will be graduating in 3 months. Northwest is the best :)

Okay so i came from Saginaw, not one of the best schools just to be nice. I started attending Northwest my sophomore year and noticed a bigh change in my vocabulary and much more. My junior year i was weak in history and science and was scared for the taks. But my history teacher was amazing and they have an awesome program. My physics teacher was so strict and i hated him at first but he taught me so much in the long run. (props to TUBBS!) Anyways, there are great people there and so many different kinds. We have fun events that a lot of other schools don't get to experience. Allthough i had to go back to Saginaw for personal reasons, i am smarter than most people here now and care so much more about my grades. THANKS NORTHWEST!! You have definitely made an impact on my life!

I graduated from Northwest, and I absolutely loved it. I came from a high school that was miserable, I was never happy there. Then I transfered to Northwest, and let me tell you it is the best place you could possibly put your teen in school. Teachers care for us individually, they make sure that you keep your grades in check with mandatory tutorials with a grade below 75, they enforce rules such as IDs and hall passes, and they also understand that we are students... not inmates.. Northwest High School is a great place. Even 'Senioritis' can't make me dislike it.

Each of my four children have gone to Northwest. I dont believe the teachers keep a parent informed. I also dont think the teachers care to much about 'teaching'.

My son is a freshman this year (2008-09) and we were skeptical of the available programs offered at a 'country' school. But were we pleasantly surprised. And, the the opening of the new H.S. next year, it will improve the teacher-to-student ratio. Only problem we have seen are with the students who are of questionable character that attend (coming with families moving out here from the 'big city'). Which is not the school's fault. Parents have to take primary responsibility for their children. But with regards to these kids... my question is, 'where are the parents!?!'

I was here my freshman year and i thought it was an amazing school.I had to transfer last year being at my new school it made me realize how great Northwest truly was. Teachers are so nice and caring that I developed a semi-friendship with some of my teachers where if I ever needed anything I could just go to them and talk to them and they would understand me.The principle is also a great guy and very understanding and reasonable.I also thought that the academic field was excellent and even though it was challenging, it taught me a lot of what i know now.They also have a lot of electives for students who want to do different things and explore different fields whether its in fine arts, a different language, technology classes, or just basic things you need to know in life Northwest offers it all. I really recommend it.

I'm a junior @ northwest, i've been back and forth over the past two years,. i've had a really tough time getting through school...but it's a great school,you can be who you want to be, dress how you want to dress. I also love the fact that boys are allowed to dress how they want and have their hair as long as they want. in this school you're allowed to express individuality. I like that, i got sick of having to conform to everyone else's expectations. If i'm worried about how stupid i look in a uniform or too woorried about not being comfortable with the rules, how am i supposed to focus on my education? @ northwest i don't have to worry about that. I can be who i want to be and focus on becoming what i want. Great school. Math department hasn't done too much for me though
