Northwood School

92 Northwood Rd, PO Box 1070, Lake Placid, NY 12946

Northwood's rigorous academic program emphasizes college preparation in a structured, small-class setting. Advanced Placement and honors courses, as well as a varied choice of electives, supplement the standard curricular offerings. The school also maintains a particularly strong arts program. Students gain opportunities for initiative and responsibility through a broadly based student government program. The school enables pupils to engage in many different kinds of community service projects. A strong board of trustees has aided the growth of the school, which attracts able students from a wide area. Supplementing the full athletic program are local woodland and mountain areas and the nearby Olympic Arena, all of which provide opportunities for alpine and freestyle skiing, snowboarding and other winter sports.
