Welcome From Head of School

Welcome from Northwood's Head of School, Mike Maher 

Since 1905, Northwood School’s mission has been rooted in two imperative duties: to foster growth in young people and to prepare them to engage their world. 

At Northwood School, our faculty, academic curriculum, and facilities are dedicated to combining intellectual rigor and creative firsthand learning with a diverse and talented student population. We actively recruit inquisitive students and experienced professional faculty, because we know that they are both, equally, our greatest assets. 

A Northwood School education provides students with firsthand experiences that allow them to find and explore their passions, to hone their skills and build a knowledge base that will prepare them to face the challenges of the modern world. The experiences also set Northwood School students apart in the college admissions process.  

Northwood School is proud of our 3,000 alumni. The wide-spanning and impressive accomplishments of our graduates are rivaled only by their contributions to society and their devotion to Northwood.   Today more than ever, Northwood School is committed to our duty to prepare students to be adaptive, resilient, and creative – adaptive to the rapid pace of change in our society, resilient to adversity, and creative in the generation of new ideas. 

Thank you for taking some time to visit our website and learn more about the many ways that Northwood School fosters growth in young people so that they may engage their world and lead lives of consequence.

Sincerely, Michael Maher, Head of School
