I have not had any issues with Norhtwest. The teachers are awesome. Hard work keeping track of all those kids. I don't mind making contributions of hand sanitizer, kleenex and wipes to my kids' classes. I know their budget is limited. To the teachers at Northwest...thanks for all you do.

Didn't get a warm, fuzzy feeling from this school. Therapists have more power than the teachers, much like a charter school. Principal is a very nice person, but doesn't follow up on promises. We did really like some of the specials teachers, though.

The parents of this school have no sense of reality. The PTO is full of woman with big heads. There is lunch staff issues, fire hazards during the lunchtime for 5th graders folding tables stacked in a way that would prohibit the students to exit the lunch room safely. A teacher/counselor believes children ...  Read more

We are thrilled so far with our experiences at northwest. Our son loves school and every year his teachers (classroom and specials) have gone above and beyond to make sure that he is learning and growing. We are very happy with everything the school has to offer our family.

The principal has been there 3 years now and has done a wonderful job getting this school in order. They also have a better PTO than most schools around.

We have had a child at Northwest Elementary for 3 years now and we have had a very positive experience. The teachers for two of those years were completely outstanding. The new principal goes beyond the call of duty to ensure that things are done right and has made many improvements in the year that ...  Read more

We have been at Northwest for 4 years now and have had a great experience. The teachers and new principal have good communication with the parents... In particular, I love the new WebGrader system. Also after years of a disorganized child drop off area, the principal jumped on it right away and fixed ...  Read more

We were not happy with Northwest elementary. Our son had a teacher that was obviously tenured, and very much so acted like it. She did an awful job communicating with us, if at all. He had team teachers his last year. They were never on the same page. We look forward to him leaving and starting ...  Read more

MEAP* Test Scores

Grade Level:

Test Year: 2013
Northwest Elementary School
Howell Public Schools
* In 2012-2013 Michigan used the Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in math, reading and writing; in grades 5 and 8 in science; and in grades 6 and 9 in social studies. The MEAP is a standards-based test, which measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Michigan. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level. Beginning in the 2011-2012 school year, the Michigan State Board of Education implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the MEAP test. The new standards for proficiency are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change.
