Welcome to the Northwest website!
Our primary goal at Northwest Elementary School is to provide a strong academic foundation upon which students can build successful lives.
We deliver a curriculum that challenges children to reach their greatest potential through a variety of instructional approaches, assessment methods, and technology tools. Along with the mastery of basic skills, we focus on the ability to reason, problem solve, communicate effectively and think creatively.
We believe the understanding and appreciation of the arts and a well-balanced lifestyle are also important to the development of the whole child. In addition, we place emphasis on character development and responsible behavior. We create a positive learning environment by reinforcing the virtues of respect, responsibility, caring, cooperation, perseverance and integrity. It is our sincere belief that home, school and community must work together in order to best provide a healthy school environment that nurtures students who are lifelong learners and productive citizens.
