Northwest High School

The Direction of Greatness

Welcome to NWHS

  • Welcome to Northwest High School, a great place to be a part of Mountie Greatness!

    Northwest High School serves approximately 975 students in grades 9 through 12.  We pride ourselves on providing a great culture that promotes learning, growing, safety, and community.  Our high school is the hub of our community activities.  We have great support from community members in all activities from sports, the arts, robotics, or work experience opportunities and much more.  There is a strong history of involvement and school spirit that can be seen across the county.

    We have an outstanding staff of teachers, support staff, and administrators.  We take satisfaction in the fact we are all here to help our students and each other.  There is a sense of camaraderie and closeness in helping each other grow and lead.  

    Northwest High School is an excellent place to start or continue your career.  You are encouraged to share your passion and interests through content or developing elective classes that fall within your certification.  We have a monthly Professional Development plan that is laid out for every Wednesday that involves a full staff meeting, department meetings, school improvement planning, MTSS system work, and PLCs.  Teachers are encouraged to take leadership roles in these areas.

    New teachers to NWHS are provided with a district welcome meeting and training around PBIS, MTSS, and the Mountie Way.  As you transition into your new position, you are provided with a mentor that will help acclimate you to the building and show you all of the steps to getting started.

    We are always looking for those outstanding teachers that know how to build positive relationships with students.  This is one of the greatest gifts for teachers to impact students for the rest of their lives.  

    We would love to have the opportunity to meet with you and share the great opportunities that can be found in Mountie Nation at Northwest High School!
