    The teachers are great! The only problem is the principal has no clue to what bullying is about.

    Both of my boys go to this school and the teachers are very creative. They challenge the children to ask questions and participate.

    I think that for the most part Northwest is a great school. In 4 years I have only had one negative experience in which I feel Mr. Vavro could have handled differently. I feel my child is getting an excellent education. Butler school district is the only reason we have kept our family in this area.

    Overall this school is very well rounded . There are a few teachers that in my opinion should not be teaching the grade they teach. I also think they need more activities for the kids such as Football Basketball Cheerleading ect.
