With more than 2,100 students, Northwest has a plethora of study habits offered by its students to help them best get homework done and study for tests. As some students may be studying the same material, no two students study in the same way.

Students do their best to create and utilize study habits that help them in school and allow them to also have time for other things in their busy lives.

“When I do homework, I often do homework that’s due further down the road that’s worth more points than homework that is due sooner that isn’t worth a lot of points,” sophomore Mason Fuller said.

Fuller prioritizes his homework and studying in a way that is fairly uncommon compared to other Northwest students.

“If I have a lot to do, though, sometimes I might end up prioritizing work based off of when the assignments are due,” Fuller said.

As his prioritization isn’t perfect, Fuller has developed ways to deal with studying when he might not be able to utilize his normal system.

“I do all the important stuff like projects at home in my free time and all of the busywork in fourth period,” freshman Seth Wilder said.

Wilder has found that it is most beneficial for him to do the work he feels is more important at home and finish everything else in allotted time during school.

“If my workload stays the same, but if it starts to grow, I’ll probably just have to start doing more homework at home,” Wilder said.

For the foreseeable future, Wilder sees his current study strategy as being fairly sustainable. He does have a contingency plan in mind just in case things begin to change.

“I don’t follow my schedule religiously. Usually, I just go to what I need to study and work there,” sophomore Landon Alison said.

Alison does have strategies to tackle his homework, but unlike many students, he doesn’t follow any specific schedule to get his studying done.

“My best study option is to just quiz myself,” Alison said, “If I didn’t study like that, I’d fail more quizzes. I wouldn’t say that I need to study this way, its just the easiest and least time consuming way for me.”
