Norman Public Schools Reviews

I have had a mostly admirable experience at Norman Public Schools over the last 11 years. During this time, I feel that I have been given decent opportunities to display my academic abilities. However, the resources for these opportunities could definitely be improved. I have also had somewhat qualified and mostly helpful teachers in my time at NPS. Many of these teachers have left very impactful curriculums and possess a unique instructing style. Despite this, I also believe that other NPS teachers are not quite certified for their career. This is because the low wages for teachers in Oklahoma push away the more professional instructors. Overall, you may enjoy NPS, if you are like me, who can tolerate some occasional annoyances. The only reason why I’m giving this review four stars is because the ranking reflects my personal experience, and not my critical analysis. However, while Norman Public Schools may not be fantastic, it is far superior to other school systems in Oklahoma.

Norman Public schools are a great school district. They focus on a diverse learning experience whether that relies on the involvement of technology inside and outside of classrooms, new facilities, higher education standards and other strategies. The Norman Public Schools have a strong focus on student safety and have grown tremendously in their goal for student success. The staff that works for the district is highly competitive and very capable of bringing the best resources possible to its students and parents. One area that is gaining and should continue to see growth are the athletic and artistic programs in a sense that all students can participate and compete.
Norman Public Schools is all inclusive and strives to include and care for every student. In norman education is a top priority, the schools want their students to go on to higher education, whether that be a college or a university. they have recently taken another step for the students to be college ready by providing us with laptops and focused on being more technology savvy. I've attended Norman Public Schools my entire life, and I wouldn't change a thing!
