Omaha Northwest High Magnet School at 8204 Crown Point Avenue in Omaha, Nebraska is located on a 61-acre (250,000 m2) campus in northwest Omaha. Completed in 1971, it is the newest of the seven high schools in the OPS district. Further renovations were completed in 2004, adding several classrooms and improving the choral and band facilities. The current principal of Omaha Northwest High Magnet is Herman Colvin. Special features within the building include an auditorium center, a 2,200 seat gymnasium with two balcony areas for physical education instruction and interscholastic athletics, and the latest equipment for students in specialized areas such as computer technology, art, business, mathematics, industrial technology and science. However, while the school has swim teams, the building has no pool.

Northwest's colors are scarlet, navy, and old gold. Its mascot is the Husky.
