NorthWood High School is a comprehensive secondary school that educates all the students in grades nine through twelve within the Wa-Nee Community. At NorthWood, we believe that all students can learn. It is our vision to provide the standards for an exemplary school, a safe environment for student learning, and a positive sense of community among students, faculty and staff.
We currently serve the educational needs for approximately 900 students. We operate on a trimester schedule. The trimester schedule has facilitated greater student learning, provided more opportunities to earn Academic Honors diplomas, and increased participation and success in the fine arts programs.
NorthWood has earned the respect of area schools and received national recognition because of its success in numerous programs, such as academic competitions (twenty-two state championships), FFA tractor restoration projects, yearbook publications, fine arts, band, choir and drama. Athletics have had two state championship teams and numerous regional and sectional titles.
The staff at NorthWood High School is dedicated to maintaining high expectations for student achievement through teacher collaboration during Professional Learning Communities (PLCs). The teacher leadership capacity allows NorthWood High School to address the federal and state mandates to uphold “A Tradition of Excellence” while teaming with the community to maintain a culture for success.
