The school first opened in September 1964. After initial construction, the school was dedicated to the Flint Community Schools Board of Education by Claude E. Stout. Further additions to the building were a swimming pool in November 1964 and the Guy V. Houston football stadium in the fall of 1967.
The high school's official mascot is the wildcat. The official school colors are green and white.
In 1999, Flint Community Schools entered into a contract with EdisonLearning, Inc. (formerly known as Edison Schools, Inc.), the country's leading private manager of public schools, in order to improve the school and boost student performance. Flint Northwestern High School became an EdisonLearning partnership school, and its official name became Flint Northwestern-Edison Community High School. In 2005, the contract was not renewed and Flint Community Schools gave the high school its present name: Flint Northwestern Preparatory Academy.
