We've had great school experiences in the past, but Northwestern is at the top of the list. The administration and teachers are fantastic. Our 6th grader loves her school. Quality education and good extra curricular programs.

I just finished up a full semester of student teaching at NMS through a program at Kennesaw State University. I must say I was beyond impressed with the administration and the staff's efforts to do everything possible to ensure all students meet or exceed the standards. The high level of team and content ...  Read more
