I would not recommend Northwest High School. The teachers are good, but administration is not. This school has lots of bullying and they do nothing about it. Go to Eaton or Byron high school.

Facility-wonderful, opportunities-fantastic, staff-questionable on case by case basis. One junior level pre-ap teacher was convinced by her class they couldn't read or knew how to take notes for research papers. She read aloud to them from Dr. Seuss books.

Teachers are biased. They (performing Arts, Mr. Kay in particular) refuse to allow others to particpate, he seems to have his select studends.....and refuses to allow others to perform. He has done this for three years straight...If anyone is wanting their child to have a fair shot Mr. Kay is not of any help.

Beyond tests and homework, some public school students face greater challenges, including the uncertainty of where they will sleep each night. Learn about the increase in homeless students and what public schools are doing to meet the challenge.
