The Board of School Directors, administration, and staff are working diligently to provide the children of Northwest Area with the best education possible. As the Superintendent of Schools, it is an honor and privilege to work with such a dedicated faculty and staff working collaboratively for the benefit of the students of the district. Our teaching staff takes great pride in delivering a quality education to our students daily. Additionally, our success is a reflection of strong family values supporting student’s educational needs.
Northwest Area School District encompasses the Borough of Shickshinny, Union Township, Huntington Township, Hunlock Township, Fairmount Township, and New Columbus Borough. The School District is a combination of small town charm and beautiful rolling countryside making it a wholesome environment to raise children.
The Northwest Area School District is an extension of the community we serve. The staff works diligently to improve student achievement by providing an education that meets the needs of individual students through differentiating classroom instruction and preparing students for the world of work or the world of college.
I believe that you will find our new website to be informative and helpful in locating information and resources regarding the Northwest Area School District. Please take some time to view the individual school building pages to locate specific information pertaining to the Primary School, Intermediate School, and the Junior-Senior High School. We hope to highlight important information for students and parents of the district. I want to wish all students a successful school year. Go Rangers!
Elizabeth J. Ellis, Acting Superintendent of Schools
