After School Care: 

Parental Involvement: Our school encourages parents to take an active role in their children's education. Parent volunteers assist teachers at each grade level and many volunteer to help on school-wide projects.

School Improvement Team: Comprised of staff members and parents, this group sets school goals and monitors school operations.

How to Enroll: Parents of prospective students should contact the school office or come by to receive a packet of enrollment information. The Davidson County school system does not enroll out-of-district students, even on a tuition basis.

Have you ever considered becoming a volunteer? If so, Northwest has a place for you! Let the office (or your child's teacher) know that you would like to volunteer to help a child, and see where you can be utilized.
