NHS Arts EDUcation Foundation


The Northwood High School Arts Education Foundation (NHSAEF) is a community initiative dedicated to ensuring excellence in arts education by identifying, creating, and supporting programs that enrich learning, foster student achievement, and increase community involvement.

Teacher grants support the ongoing work of Northwood’s award-winning arts education department—contributing to residencies, equipment purchases, field trips, master classes, and professional development activities. Since 2007, the foundation also has presented almost $30,000 in college scholarships to graduating seniors recognizing their achievements in the visual and performing arts.
