    "The workload is fair. There's homework, but not usually a lot of it. The curriculums are pretty decent. The scheduling process is very easy. You look at the required classes you need, pick those, then pick electives to go around those, fill out the form, then turn it in to the counselor or Clara in the office."

    "I like this school because it is very unique. They prepare you for life outside of high school, make sure you're on the right track for graduating and passing all your classes. They make sure you watch your character, because it matters, and they emphasize it very much ( in a program called "Character Counts" for all students and staff)."

    "The teachers at Northwood-Kensett are very caring and friendly. Of course, everyone has their days.. but you can still tell they care about their job and want the best for their students. I know I could count on one of them to help me work through an assignment that I don't understand and make sure that I know what I'm doing. They are some of the nicest people I've ever met and I honestly don't think I could've gotten any luckier with my choice of school. I will miss coming here to see their smiling faces each and every day! I have a healthy relationship with the staff members here. I could sit down and have a nice, personal conversation with each of them and be completely comfortable with it. I don't want to refer to them as "friends" because that makes them sound like they'd be pushovers and let us get by with things, but that is definitely not the case! Most teachers at my school have complete control of the classroom and we know what's expected of us. If we do what we're told and we get our work done, we're usually rewarded with some free time or we're able to talk for the last five minutes of class or something. The teachers at Northwood-Kensett get very involved with their lessons, which is one of the main reasons I enjoy my school. I've had a few teachers in the past who would give us a homework assignment and send us off on our own. It's not that I'm not able to learn on my own or help teach myself a lesson, but it's a lot easier to have someone explain it or help you through a few problems before assigning you homework. I don't exactly love school, but I do have to say I would much rather be a "Northwood-Kensett Viking" than any other mascot or school. This is a great place to learn and meet new people!"

    "For the most part, I think this is a really great school. Most of us all get along really well and there's a good sense of community."
