Northwest Middle & High School

Welcome to our campus where elevated learning and cultural integration work as one


Home of the Falcons

Almost a decade ago, the $26.9 million campus opened its doors for students for the first time on, August 26, 2002. The construction of this facility has been a dream come true. We are tremendously proud of the integral roles that our parents, students, staff and Board members played in the achievement to complete this new campus.
