Northwestern High School was a public high school located in Baltimore, Maryland. It closed at the end of the 2016-2017 school year, having been merged with Forest Park High School as part of the city school district's "21st Century Schools Building Plan" to consolidate and modernize its schools in response to declining enrollments.
Built in 1965 as the first fully racially integrated school in Baltimore, alumni and community leaders mounted an ultimately unsuccessful campaign to keep it open.
Student records are obtainable through BCPS school headquarters.
