Welcome to our new principal of Northwest School of the Arts, Katy Coffelt. 

Greetings NWSA Students and Families! 

I am truly honored and thrilled to be the new Principal at Northwest School of the Arts! A few years ago, I had the pleasure of visiting Northwest in person and was immediately greeted by a culture of students and staff that truly impressed and warmed my heart. From the moment I entered the building,it was obvious that NWSA is a unique place where students grow and flourish in a safe, nurturing environment that genuinely strives to serve the whole child every single day. I am so excited to be serving in this capacity and to make NWSA a school where students, families, and our entire NWSA community are inspired, challenged, and celebrated as we strive to grow not only academically, but in what lies at the heart of NWSA’s distinctiveness - the arts.
