The school community will aspire to excellence in every educational experience, including the use of current and emerging technologies.

  • We believe that all of Northwestern's programs contribute to meeting the needs of the school community and that these programs are united by that common goal.
  • We believe in a personalized school setting where teachers and students can come to know one another, and where students feel acknowledged and respected as individuals.
  • We believe in the importance of curriculum which helps students to apply knowledge beyond isolated learning environments.
  • We believe that each Northwestern student must hold to the highest possible standards of achievement in reading, writing, listening, speaking, computing, problem solving, independent learning and productive citizenship.
  • We believe that the fine and performing arts play an important role in helping Northwestern students develop appreciation for their cultural history and provide enriching avenues for self-expression.
  • We believe that participation in athletics, student government, and other school based activities contribute to the development of important skills and talents and that these experiences are valuable for all students.
  • We believe that the opportunities to learn the skills needed to participate fully in a democracy are fundamental to education.

  • We believe in school discipline which is firm, fair, and clearly stated, and student self-discipline that is respected and reinforced by Northwestern school policies, faculty, and staff.
