    Northwest Junior High at Douglass is a comprehensive school that utilizes Restorative Practices. Students are encouraged to self-reflect on behavior and mend broken relationships through circle work. Northwest Junior High is looking for students who are self-motivated, willing to learn, and enjoy being challenged in the middle grades, which helps to prepare them for success in high school, college, and careers in any field. Additionally, we offer rising 7th-graders (who qualify) and 8th-graders the opportunity to take high school Regents level courses during middle school. At Northwest Junior High, we believe that all students can learn and experience success with the right supports and resources. Our staff is committed to doing whatever it takes to ensure student academic and social-emotional growth. Nestled in a residential setting in a northeast Rochester neighborhood, students can learn on a campus with spacious grounds and a variety of athletic fields.
