              This school was very responsive to our need to be involved in every planning decision. They have a cheerleader attitude that brings out the best for my student. After permanent gaps left from elementary school and a middle school that was always willing to be more inclusive but struggled at times , Northwest staff provided immeasurable benefit to my now graduate.

              We were blessed to know the system and have an advocate on our side. We researched the schools available and moved accordingly to be near the schools we wanted. Be involved and know your choices.

              The counseling staff is incredible. They treat my daughter as if she’s the only student in the school. Ms. Bezou, the Special Education Transition Teacher, went above and beyond in putting a transition plan in place for my daughter during her senior year.
