We're all students. We're all teachers.

Community Meeting is one of the hallmarks of The Northwest School experience. During the academic year, all students and faculty meet every Wednesday for announcements, presentations and performances.

Middle Schoolers eat with all grades and faculty, participate in all-school celebrations, and join students from every grade on overnight skiing, biking, hiking, and kayaking trips.

Three times a week, the Environment Program brings students together in teams led by seniors to clean and care for the entire campus and our surrounding neighborhood. They take care of recycling in all buildings and maintain the gardens and the sport court. During this regular cleaning, students develop responsibility for their own environment, and Upper Schoolers gain leadership skills as team leaders.
