Mr. Gary Franklin, High School Principal


Dear Student and Parent/Guardian,

On behalf of the faculty and staff I want to welcome you to the 2023-2024 school year! We are excited about the upcoming school year and look forward to making this year a successful one for all of our students. The education of young people should be a team effort involving a collaborative partnership between the school and parents.  We are very much looking forward to working closely with all of our students and families to assure a quality educational experience for all of our kids and their families at Northwestern.

The high school experience provides young people with the wonderful opportunity to discover their unique interests, talents, and gifts. Northwestern Regional High School offers a large variety of clubs, music programs, academic groups, organizations, and teams that can enable our students to explore new things to learn more about themselves. We encourage all of our students to get involved and try something new!

High School is unlike any other time in your life. Study hard, challenge yourself, set high goals for yourself and have fun! We are very fortunate to have a great school with great students and teachers. Make the time you spend in high school some of the most important and productive of your life.

To be a Highlander is to be a part of something truly special. Northwestern Regional High School is a school where everyone is valued. We embrace diversity in all of its forms and recognize that every person in our school, student and adult, has something unique to offer our learning community. Please know that the faculty, staff, and administration are very excited and looking forward to working with you and helping you along your journey. We want to be a part of your success. Let’s work together to make Northwestern the very best school it can be. Along with the faculty and staff, I wish you an exciting and successful school year.



Gary B. Franklin
