Northwest Guilford Middle School Reviews
Homework is too much
Northwest is a great school. The teachers are great but, they pile on a lot of homework. The children are in school for 7 hours, they don't need 3-4 hours of homework.
The HVAC system is horrible and the school is always either freezing cold or burning hot. Parents are TOO vocal and involved to the point that the administration is more concerned with public relations than with doing what is best for students. The potential for this school is amazing based on the overall calibar of students. However, an unimaginative master schedule and complacency on the part of some teachers and adminstrators holds NWMS back. The school is good but with a good shake up, the school could be GREAT.
