I’m very fortunate to be placed in the Nordonia Hills City School District. There are fields of opportunity and skill building that teachers and faculty constantly nurture. It’s placed in a safe area with a community designed to bring the best out of oneself. I used to be a struggling student in elementary, but this district taught me persistence and work ethic. Teachers guide, but leave students to dig their own paths. Each student can have an education based on their skill level, with many basic classes to AP and College classes offered. Extracurriculars are when students come together to cheer others, help the community, and bond as a class. You learn about many different people and grow culturally around a diverse society. Overall, Nordonia has shaped me into the proud, hardworking woman it has today. I will continue to represent this district proudly for the rest of my life.

The best part of Nordonia was that the teachers and students all genuinely believed in education and graduating. In a world where many schools have teachers that do not care and students who do not believe in themselves it is a gem in the mud. The only flaw that I remember was that the teachers union kept a handful of teachers employed that often did not hold themselves to the standards that the others set, but even then they still presented information clearly and fairly.
The administration is the reason this school district fails to be great in my opinion. There is this idea of "no child is bad" that is implimented in all the schools which allows kids to do what they please with little to no consequence. The teachers however are great! The ones that aren't sport coaches anyway. There are several teachers who have been tenured to keep their job over, in my opinion, much better teachers simply because they were a coach. This would happen whenever the levy would fail. Overall, I think I was adequatley prepared for college thanks to the teachers I had, but I will not go back for any event. If I have kids, I would not want them to go there. Unless the administration was completely gutted and replaced.
