    "I am a graduate of the class of 2015 and I must say I am very impressed with this school! It's arts classes are among the best in the county. And I am always impressed by the great diversity of the school. Now the academics are not always the best, but comparatively speaking they are very good for CMS. That being said, if your child is not very interested in the arts, performing arts, music, or dance they might not enjoy it as much since there is emphasis placed on the arts. But overall, it is still a pretty good school academically, and with it's arts program and communities it's among the best in the state! However, be for a long commute if you live far from the school. Or plan on using the shuttle bus system if that is not possible."

    "I've been a student at NWSA since 6th grade and will be graduating with the class of 2015 from NWSA. My overall experience at this school has been a journey. The staff is so hilarious/diverse and welcoming of each and every student. This is the school any child/teen should go to if they want to perfect their art. Somehow and someway the academic staff can always find a way to incorporate a students art into academics. We all get a huge amount of opportunities to become professionals at what we love to do. If you send you kid to this marvelous school, you will not regret it. Northwest is simply the BEST!"

    "This is a very diverse and cultured place! Many different kinds of people and personalities. Core classes are good, but could be improved. Arts classes are EXCELLENT! Band is my major and we are still growing, but each individual has phenominal musical abilities! Theater programs have had some tallented actors/actresses! NWSA won 9 out of the 12 blumey awards in 2014 (BEST MUSICAl, Best actor, best actress, Best supporting actor, Best supporting actress, Best featured preformer, Best overall direction, Best ensemble/chorus, Best choreography execution.) Ms.Saigon in london this year is staring a NWSA 2014 graduate. Many other major accomplishments have been made by NWSA students! Overall great school!"

    "This is in rebuttle to the post below. This is clearly false information and is slanderous to the school. If this person truly knew anything about NWSA, they would know that the middle school has a very strong theater department. All someone has to do, is pick up a monthly school calender or view the calender online. NWSA also provides opportunities outside of the school to help students in middle and high school further their theater career. The school has a rigorous and challenging academic program which may be what this person is chaffing at. There is a great blend of academics and art which is a rare find in today's public schools. And the teachers that I have come in contact with are passionate about their students."

    "I hate this school Ive been going there all through middle school (three years) and now I cringe at the thought of going there... I hate even thinking about this school. In middle school there is rarely any shows or performances that are filled with middle school students. It seems that they only focus on high school students. Middle school just seems to stay in the background. I will admit this school was fun but just for a little while, after the first year, the school seemed to gradually become more and more annoying. I'm in eighth grade so I can not WAIT to get out of here FOREVER!! I have to go there tomorrow anyone please SAVE ME!!!!"
