A Message from Mr. DuBois

11 months ago

Welcome to Northwest Elementary School!  Our faculty and staff are excited to serve you and your child.  
When a student becomes a Northwest Explorer, they are entering into a partnership with us. 
We are dedicated to providing all students with a safe learning environment that encourages
achievement that is to the best of their abilities. 

We have committed and well-trained staff members that are
educating and preparing the whole child - physically, socially, emotionally, and academically to become future leaders and productive citizens
in an ever changing and demanding world.  To follow our vision “BE THE BEST YOU CAN BE”,
we know that natural ability only determines the limits of a student’s potential. 
It is the dedication and a willingness to self-discipline your life that helps you reach a maximum
potential.  Students with a lot of desire can go further and become more successful by engaged
commitment, denying selfishness, accepting reality, and seeking improvement every day.  

There are several areas that I believe are needed for a school to be successful. 
Developing these areas will improve, encourage, and enrich student achievement.

ACADEMIC MASTERY

Instructional practices must focus on literacy, mathematics, and educating the whole child.

 

SAFE AND SECURE ENVIRONMENT

Students and staff must be aware of practices and procedures, while maintaining a positive culture and climate.

 

CAREER AND LIFE READINESS

Experiences must develop 21st Century skills and create responsible and productive citizens.

 

COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIPS

Connections to resources, programming, and service opportunities must develop future leadership.

 

STUDENT ENGAGEMENT

Building relationships, establishing trust, and creating opportunities must produce student involvement.

Sincerely,

Mark DuBois


Northwest Forms
  • Who We Are
    Northwest Elementary School is located at 4524W 800 N, twenty-five miles southwest of Fort Wayne, Indiana. The school boundaries extend from the outside edges of the city limits into the rural areas surrounding the school. Northwest School was built in 1967 and is situated in a rural setting on thirty-three acres, in the northwest corner of Huntington County.
  • What We Do
    Our mission to create a safe and brain-compatible environment for all students, staff, and visitors is ongoing. Every certified and classified staff member has received professional development in the Highly Effective Teaching model (HET). This model provides a common set of high expectations with regard to academics, behavior, and citizenship at Northwest School. The use of LIFESKILLS and Lifelong Guidelines in the classrooms promote community as well as individual accountability.
  • How We Do It
    Creating classroom communities and fostering personal responsibility help to minimize student discipline issues and dedicate more time to student learning. Teachers and students work together to create a set of classroom procedures that allow freedom of choice and ensure an organized and effective environment. All facility members helped to create building-wide procedures and work together to insure the safety and responsibility of all who attend our school.
