I would choose this school if I could do it all over. Nothwest highschool may not have the best students, parents, or placement in Clarksville, but I know that these teachers care. I would honesty take more advantage of them staying after!

The safety at this school is very if anything suspicious seems to be happening they control it right away. They have drills once a month randomly and the administration checks to assure procedures are followed. Bullying is a 0 tolerance thing, if bullying is brought up then it's either suspension or alternative school. The school officer is always on alert asking people questions and really good at his job.

Every student in our school try's everything to participate in school sports or come out to support our current team players playing. We excelled in everything to be the best and encourage our school and how we are the Vikings. When we have spirit week for our sports everyone gose full on out to have fun and show our spirit. It's an amazing loving feeling even our staff joins! It's so much fun and were such a big family of the Vikings!
