Northwood Wildcat Life

Northwood Elementary School serves students in grades kindergarten through fourth grade. We are entering our seventh year, since opening in the fall of 2010. Northwood has the most diverse population of the three Piedmont elementary schools, as our school attendance area pulls from the poor rural areas and the moderately-valued neighborhoods in close proximity to the school, which borders the Oklahoma City metro. While our enrollment has grown consistently over the past six years, so has the diversity of our population and our free and reduced lunch count numbers. With this significant growth, new challenges have come. These challenges include an increase of students living in poverty, students coming from non-English speaking families and students living through crisis situations.

At Northwood Elementary, our mission is simple: Northwood Elementary School is committed to educating the whole child, while providing a safe and nurturing environment that promotes a passion for life-long learning, respect for self and others, and an appreciation of individual differences.

This all-around approach to meeting the needs of each student sets Northwood apart from other schools. Student Intervention Teams meet regularly to review data, discuss concerns and implement interventions. Our meetings are a balance of looking at individual student data and discussion of the child's strengths, needs and unique circumstances. That balance is key. With intentional and data-driven decisions, the best course of action for a student with needs becomes evident.
