Since its founding in 1905, Northwood School has offered outstanding scholastic and athletic programs in a stimulating environment. The school presents a challenging core curriculum that emphasizes rigorous preparation for college in a supportive and structured setting. Average class size is twelve, allowing teachers to use a variety of techniques to accommodate different learning styles. Faculty are also involved in other aspects of student's lives whether as advisor, coach, or dorm parent. At Northwood, we hold ethical and moral decision-making to be central to our educational mission. Our goal is to provide students with the skills, knowledge, and confidence to negotiate the challenges of the twenty-first century.
