I have been working at Northwest Independent School District

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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    I worked at Northwest Independent School District full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity limited only to effort applied. Foundational expectations applied with outcomes of measure, vs. applicability.

    Cons

    Annual expectations exceed reality of student to parent support. Teachers expected to sustain tutoring beginning in January of academic year, concluding at close of such.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your educators; they are in the trenches, rarely with student to parent accountability. Sadly, so often it is "T" to the second power; teach to test.
