Northwood was built on the piece of property that until 1999 originally served as Mercer Crest Junior High School built in 1961. After the school's closure and until Northwood was built, the site was home to an auxiliary gymnasium for the Mercer Island High School, Youth Theater Northwest, and Country Village Day School.
