A culture of courtesy and common sense. A liberal arts education drawing connections among artistic, historical, literary, and scientific fields of knowledge. An outdoor and environmental program. Stellar athletics. These are some of the integral parts of The Northwest School. Set in an urban campus that is housed in an historic landmark cared for by our students, we provide a curriculum for grades 6–12 that offers an international perspective and encourages independent and creative thinking in every class. We educate and shape our students into global citizens who will one day shape our community, nation, and world.

 
The Northwest School: outstanding college preparatory and much more. Come see for yourself.


Philosophy


The Philosophy and Values of the school are the benchmarks against which we assess everything we do here.
Philosophy of The Northwest School


•    Excellence in education is determined by the quality of the faculty.
•    The Humanities, Sciences, and Performing and Fine Arts are the appropriate areas of concentration in secondary education.
•    Ethnic, racial, religious, and economic diversity are essential for the highest quality of secondary education.
•    The development of a sense of responsibility for the immediate environment and concern for the larger community are fundamental to the education of responsible citizens.
•    All interactions in the School community can and should be directed toward the development of courtesy, common sense, mutual support, the creative spirit and independence.


The following values are foundational to The Northwest School and guide our behavior:


Core Values


These are considered critical to accomplish our Mission.


•    Respect - We expect and foster interactions within our community based on mutual respect. Valuing the diversity within our community, we are committed to dialogue that allows us to find common ground in developing a school culture based on the principles of courtesy and common sense.
•    Integrity - We are committed to honesty and authenticity in our words and actions as we seek to improve our community and our world. We believe that our community is strongest when individuals integrate their values into all their words and actions.
•    Safety - We take measures to protect the physical, emotional and intellectual safety of students and faculty. Recognizing that a good education involves a certain amount of risk, we are committed to teaching students the skills to assess and appropriately respond to those risks.


Goal Values


These values are considered useful or desirable to accomplish our Mission, and are unattainable in the strictest sense.

•    Engagement - Our commitment to and participation in school life beyond the classroom and office promote individual and community growth.
•    Creativity - The vitality of human work depends upon invention. To see in new ways is fundamental to critical thinking, effective problem solving, and artistic expression.
•    Collaboration - Teamwork and collegiality are guiding principles of our work and are essential skills for responsible, engaged citizens.
•    Environmental Stewardship - We take responsibility for the immediate environment in order to foster active care for the planet.
•    Balance - The health of the community as a whole depends on individuals leading well-balanced lives. Physical, emotional and intellectual well-being, enhanced by self-reflection and evidenced in a sense of comfort in oneself and one's place in the world, are essential to developing each person's potential.
