Welcome to The Northwest School

The Northwest School Open House format is designed for exploration and discovery, offering you the opportunity to personalize your experience on our campus, and connect with our community. We have designed the Upper School and Middle School Open Houses to provide opportunities for you to converse with faculty from across the curriculum and programs, learn about the student experience, both in and out of the classroom, and hear from our current students about what makes attending Northwest a unique experience.

Learn about our academic programs, support services, and co-curricular activates with our companion booklets.

Open House Videos

At The Northwest School, we believe arts education is vital to preparing for a fulfilling life, and is intimately connected to academics. Requiring critical thinking, discipline, self-reflection—and often courage to step out of one’s comfort zone—art offers students fundamental experiences in challenge and accomplishment. It also opens their minds to seeing new pathways to problem-solving.

See below for a wide range of video offerings from our Arts Department.
