Our mission is to create a responsive learning community where all students are valued, challenged, and guided along a pathway to success. In the Northwest Local School District we offer a curriculum that is academically rich, student-centered, and diverse.
Our shared core beliefs are as follows:
Academically stimulating curriculum inspires students to realize their full potential. Bringing together standards-based educational objectives, rich and relevant content, best instructional practices, and authentic evaluative techniques for all subjects covered in every grade level provides a curriculum that promotes high expectations for teachers and for students.
It is the district's goal to provide a research-based curriculum and the tools necessary for every teacher to build students' awareness and confidence in their own abilities to be successful and lifelong learners. Together, we will create an educational community that focuses on empowering all students in their journeys to become successful, motivated learners.
Education is the foundation of a successful society, and quality, challenging curriculum is the foundation of education. Therefore, all members of the Northwest Local Schools educational community will share in the responsibility of meeting the educational needs of all students.
We look forward to working with parents, staff and community members to best serve the students of Northwest Local Schools.
