    "I graduated from Northwest in 2012. I am currently at UNO. I fell that OPS has done such a horrible job at educating their students. When I got to UNO I felt as if I was unprepared. If you're going to send your child to any of these schools make sure that they're enrolled in AP or Honors courses. That may not even been enough for them to get the proper education. I wish that I would have taken more AP courses so I would have actually learned something valuable. I felt as if this school was a daycare for teens. I hope that OPS gets it together."

    "With the highest graduation rate in the OPS schools (before the learning community was established) Omaha Northwest is an outstanding school. More students go on to attend and complete college, as a percentage of graduating students, than any other high school in the area (See OPS stats). With additional of Magnet Status for law, criminal justice and psycholgy, NWS offers a diverse curriculum for its diverse population."

    "I am a parent of 3 currently attending and one who will be attending next year. I have enjoyed NW and believe the teachers, counselors and administrators I have encountered to be exemplary. They go out of their way to help every child. What is severely lcking is parental involvement. The same parents are running every event and sit on the committees and PTSO and such. School is not meant to be free daycare for your children. You must be involved in order to get the maximum results. If there was one thing I would change that would be it."

    "Facts about Northwest High School: 1. OPS has turned Northwest into a de facto alternative school. Each school should get an equal number of alternative school students but NW gets many more every year. 2. NW teachers are as qualified as those teaching in the other schools and has award winning teachers in a number of subjects. The state of Nebraska doesn't have lower qualifications or standards for teachers at NW. 3. 70% of NW students are low income, are bussed to school, and get free and reduced lunch. NW has the highest % of poor students in the state of Nebraska (based on enrollment) yet ranks in the top 3 schools in OPS in ALL academic areas. 4. Since 2003, Northwest is one of 3 OPS schools to participate at state in football, basketball, AND baseball. NW finished in the top 10 at the State Track Meet in 2005-07."
