Our students learn to show up, be present, and get involved. At Community Meeting they stand up, say their names, and enlighten and invite classmates to join in worthy causes; in Student Interest Groups, they share ideas and activate around passionate interests; and at our annual school festivals, they collectively celebrate Northwest School values and applaud the hard work and accomplishments of their peers.

Most importantly, our students reach out to surrounding neighborhoods and organizations, volunteering for projects that range from funding water wells in Africa to raising money for polio to clearing brush from local parklands.

Here are some of the ways our students are engaging in and giving back to the community:

  • Feed the Homeless/Ceramic Bowls
