    "From my freshman year until now Northwestern has grown a lot it went from me confused, to me understanding what high school is all about. Northwestern might not be the best school like other but it is a great place to want to learn. The teachers help you when you need help and when you don't understand certain things. Administrators handle a situation on the spot. Northwestern is a great school."

    "Going to Northwestern wasn't the best experience. I feel like I didn't really learn anything. The teachers didn't help like they should have. Some teachers didn't even teach. They would give students an assignment and expect us to work out of the book. There were a few teachers that I can say actually helped me and wanted nothing but the best for me, and i appreciate those teachers. They pushed me, and always tell me to never give up. Because of them, I never gave up"

    "What makes this school unique is how some of the students are unaffected by the violence that goes on around them daily. If I had a chance to "re-do" my time at this school, I would. This has a lot to do with my academics and social life because I feel like I could've done better in both aspects. My grades were alright during my freshman, sophomore, and junior years in high school. I know my grades would've been a lot better if I was trying my absolute best. My senior year was a lot different. I spent many nights studying, reviewing class subjects, and sharpening my academic skills because I really wanted to go to a decent college. I was opening up socially during my senior year because I've learned how to surround myself with peers with a similar mindset. My friends played a huge role in my time at this school because they took a lot of stress off my shoulders. Some of my favorite experiences at this school was joining the chess club and becoming a part of the Wayne State C2 pipeline program. Not only did these programs give me opportunities to try new things, but they also taught me useful skills that would help me for the rest of my life. In conclusion, my overall experience at this school was great!"

    "There were a number of different teaching styles at Detroit Collegiate Prep and those teaching styles depended on the teacher. The worst teaching style (in my opinion) was the college professor teaching style utilized by Mr. Espinosa. Everyone that has ever step foot in his class could agree that his class was the hardest. Espinosa would skim through the lesson as he gave you the lamest examples imaginable and on top of that, he taught Physics. That only added to the pain. He could care less if you understood the lesson or not. He'd give you a blank look if you came up to him and asked him for help on an assignment. You were lucky if you even passed his class. Another teaching style is what I call the "helping hand" teaching style. Ms. Careathers is most noted having this style. She would do everything in her power to help her students with assignments especially projects and essays. She'd let you use her computer for research and to type your paper, she'd even give you feedback on your rough drafts. But under under no circumstances would she give you an extension. If she tells you that the assignment is due 8:15 am, you better turn in the assignment at 8:14 am just to be safe. She taught English Language Arts 12 so I knew she was preparing us for more difficult courses. Mr.Espinosa would be the worst and Ms.Careathers would be the best. Every other teacher would fall between those two. In my opinion, the overall quality of the teachers at Detroit Collegiate Prep are okay."

    "The teaching that happens is great at Northwestern High School. Especially for the students that want to learn for those that don't want to learn teachers don't force them because you cant teach someone who doesn't want to be taught."
