Principal's Welcome


                                                                                                              Mr. Jeff Abell     


Dear Northwestern Families,


I hope all of you had an opportunity to relax and enjoy your summer. I would like to briefly introduce myself. Before coming to Northwestern I was a teacher and coach in Scott County for 19 years. My wife Kristy and I have been married for twenty-four years and we have four children; Ellie (18), Katie (17), Gus (14) and Adam (10).  I spent 21 years in the Air National Guard, retiring in 2010.

As I begin my second year at Northwestern I am excited to build on all that we started last year while continuing to look for ways to improve. The start of each new school year brings about opportunities to learn and grow academically and personally as individuals and as part of a group.  Through challenges and experiences it is our goal to create a positive and supportive environment that allows each student to reach their full potential if they so choose.  This is where we need your help.  Please help us stress to your student the importance of getting the most out of each opportunity as a key to finding future success.  It is my mission to ensure that students graduating from Northwestern High School are prepared with the knowledge and skills needed to follow their chosen path.

I look forward to a great year! Please email or call me if you need any assistance. Thank you for all you do to support our school.



Jeff Abell
