Norfolk Public Schools Reviews

Overall, my experience at Norfolk Public has been suitable. Most days when I walk into school, the atmosphere is full of life. Whether it is high school drama, teachers greeting kids down the halls, or friends laughing in the forum, there is always something that is happening in the school. There is the occasional fight or bullying situation that happens. Overall the school administration is decent about handling these types of situations. The education I have received is very nice compared to some high schools around the area, but It has not really prepared me for life after high school. I would like to see the fine arts department promoted more than it has been the past and I have not been very fond of the chromebook based homework, but I can be old-fashioned at times. Overall, my experience at Norfolk Public was worth the time I have spent here.

Norfolk Public Schools in no way stands out to be blatantly honest. It is what it is, a school district that educated and sort of prepares its students for life after school but it focuses more on its own finances, programs, and it’s own agenda before its students education and preparing them for higher-education despite some good efforts by certain teachers and administrators.
Going to Norfolk Public Schools has been a very good thing for me and my siblings. We have been blessed to be apart of such a great learning district full of teachers and administrators working to improve education, commitment, and dedication to finding a job in the future.
