Northwestern has gotten some recognition for the strides the school has made in the field of accessibility.
The Accessibility Advisory Committee presented an award to the school at Monday's Stratford City Council meeting.
Martin Ritsma, principal of Northwestern, accepted the award on the school's behalf.
Ritsma says inclusion is just a part of the school's fabric:
Northwestern boasts features aimed at overcoming physical obstacles such as magnetic hallway doors, accessible stalls in every washroom, and cafeteria ramps.
The school is also working towards communicative accessibility through things like smart boards and hand held devices.
