Pros

It is the highest paying school district in the state of Texas. The Barnett Shale in the north Fort Worth area is creating new jobs, new homes, and new schools. This is an excellent reason to be in a district that is booming.

Cons

The district is growing so fast that some schools are over crowded. Some schools are located near heavy traffic areas such as highways and entertainment venues.

Advice to Management

Senior management is doing an excellent job of keeping up with the times in technology and curriculum. Northwest has excellent training programs and provides many learning opportunities. Some schools however, should consider more of a balance between support and competition.

    Pay, administration, forward thinking with educational philosophy. Lots of opportunities for professional development.

    Cons

    Communication is difficult due to districts large size. Sometimes you will have to work some pretty long hours.

    Advice to Management

    Have regional boss to bridge the gap in the district.

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits, immaculate schools and classrooms, opportunity for professional growth, technology readily available. This is an outstanding job if you're a slave to your profession.

    Cons

    Extremely stressful environment, teachers swamped with "busy work" (bulletin boards, duty, etc.) that is not typically required in other districts, there's always a new "push" for one thing or another and it can be overwhelming to keep up with, parents in my rural school were some of the most difficult and unsupportive I've encountered.

    Advice to Management

    Lighten the load on teachers and focus instead on celebrating the successes of your students. There is a reason the teacher turnover rate in Northwest ISD is so high!
