What is Grad Night?

It is a Northwood High School Tradition.


It is an all-night party for the ENTIRE senior class the night of graduation. There is still time to celebrate with family after the graduation ceremony. Grad Night doesn’t start until 10:00 PM.  It ends at 5:00 AM the next morning. But no worries . . . there is so much to do during that time!


It is a fun-filled night where your students will have the option to play a variety of games, such as interactive video games, pool, etc. They can dance and take photos in a photo booth. The activities are ENDLESS, and FOOD is served ALL NIGHT LONG!

It is a tradition to keep the venue a SECRET. We do this for a couple of reasons. First of all, we keep the students guessing all the way until the minute the bus pulls up to the venue. It makes it more exciting!  Secondly, we do it for your student’s safety. We don’t want anyone knowing ahead of time to ensure others don’t show up unexpectedly. Previous venues have included ESPN Zone, Dave and Busters, and the Orange County Fairgrounds. We never go to a venue farther than a half hour from NHS.


It is a SAFE event. There are plenty of chaperones and security to watch all students. No student is allowed to leave the venue on his/her own. There is absolutely NO ALCOHOL or DRUGS!  This is strictly enforced and will NOT be tolerated.  


It is an event where the students MUST ride on a bus to and from the event with chaperones present. This is to ensure the safety of all students.


It is an event where the kids dress CASUAL.


It is an evening where parents are encouraged to VOLUNTEER.


It is a night that EVERYTHING is included in the ticket price: FOOD, ENTERTAINMENT, TRANSPORTATION, AND MORE!!!

We hope your senior will attend!
