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!

At Northwest High School the experience is great. It is a well organized and well thought out school that wants to see students succeed in life.As a result multiple students have moved onto college and in a broader sense, life. With a wide diversity of students,personalities,clubs,sports, and activities

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.
