NHS has earned another Four-Star School Designation!
Welcome to the NHS website! As principal of the best high school in Howard County, I have an open door policy for students, staff, and parents. You are invited to stop by and share a celebration or a concern. As of September 18th, we will have completed 15% of our school year. Ask yourself these questions:
- Do I know my child’s schedule?
- Do I know my child’s teachers?
- Have I signed up for Skyward and checked my child’s grades?
At the high school level, it is important to allow your child to take responsiblity for their education; however, your support and encouragement are critical to their success. We not only want your involvement, we need your involvement. The best way to enhance your child's high school experience and ensure that he or she is college and career ready is with a partnership and communication between home and the school. NHS continues to be the only 4-Star School in Howard County. In addition, we are deemed an "A" school by the Department of Education! We are proud to be Northwestern Tigers!

All applications will be reviewed and voted on by a Faculty Council appointed by the Principal.
Scholarship – Must have a cumulative “B” grade point average, which is a 7.900 on Northwestern’s grading scale. Any student who qualifies with this grade point average will be invited to apply for membership.
