It is the Northwest High School District #82 philosophy to encourage students to participate in a variety of activities/athletics and not limit themselves in their potential growth through experiences. Specialization is not encouraged at the high school level. It may occur through the student's choice but it is not encouraged.
Northwest has a strong academic and athletic tradition.
