Business Ambassadors
It may take a village to raise a child but, in Northwest ISD, we believe it takes a village to educate a child as well. Business and community partnerships enrich the education our students receive in and out of the classroom. NISD strives to become a leader in innovative curriculum and technology through the infusion of real-world applications from corporate sponsorship while faith-based and civic organizations provide much needed support in preparing students to become productive and successful citizens. In Northwest ISD, business partnerships are not a one-way street. Students and staff seek opportunities to reach out and take part in internship and volunteer programs that benefit our partners as well. More importantly, our business partners serve as 'ambassadors' for Northwest ISD through their involvement in and out of our classrooms. Knowledge of district programs, facilities and curriculum offers insight many community members may not experience. As a Business Ambassador, you have the opportunity to advocate for Northwest ISD!
How can you get involved?

Northwest ISD Academies offer students a multitude of programs to choose from that offer state-of-the-art facilities, rigorous curriculum, contest participation, and valuable hands-on training evaluated by corporate sponsors and partners. Each Academy depends on Business Partners to enhance the classroom experience through guest speaking, student internships, ‘Real World Problem’ projects, business tours and teacher externships. Academy Advisory Committees keep curriculum and instruction on track. Our programs include:
