We have been very disappointed with this school. There are problems with bullying and drugs and parent concerns are not addressed. Some of the teachers are great, but there are more teachers here who do not love their subject matter and do not teach effectively or care about their students. Avoid this school if possible.

Northwood is a good school because there are a lot of nice kids, teachers, and staff. The teachers are all great and will really teach you so that you're prepared for the next grade. :D. the food could improve though.

I am writing a review about this school because I am now an 8th grader here. If you are someone who is going to be coming to Northwood and if you like to feel proud than you should join band. Mr.shook is the best band teacher and only gives music that we can all play. He is stict but thats how you learn. we practiced so much for the Jr. Lilac Parade that we won the grand sweepstakes. This means that the teachers will take their own time and teach you what you need. so I would love to recommend this school to anyone who is moving here to Spokane. Go Huskies! Also, Go Watershed!!!

I was a student there a year ago and had a blast. Teachers stay after school to help student who needs it. They provide plenty of extra curricular activities, too. Their sports and academic abilities are great. The principle is out interacting with the students every day.

The teacher, administrators, and staff work hard to provide the students with a quality education in and beyond the classroom. From providing online grades and assignment review almost instantly to offering a variety of sports and extracurricular activities such as chess club, art club, planet Northwood, math club, and homework club, this school makes impressive efforts toward meeting the expanding interest of the students.

Wonderful school. Great teachers and a very forward thinking principal who stays totally involved with the students and parents.

I like Northwood and my son also enjoys it. I really think having all teachers use think-wave and keep it updated would help all students succeed because they would have the support of parents to remind them of assignments and parents know how their kids are doing.

I am a student here at Northwood and I love it. Our education is one of the best in the state. Our sports and other out of school activities have the highest turnout in the state. I love it here because the teachers are great and they make learning enjoyable.

I'm concerned about the low level of computer use in this school. Many teachers seem unwilling to embrace new and changing curriculum and the use of technology. Also, there seems to be a lot of bullying.
