Overall, I had a relatively positive experience at Norris. The staff consisted of many “younger” teachers who were often fresh out of college; this was great because oftentimes this made class a lot more enjoyable. Older teachers tend to have more dry classes, but the younger ones still seem enthusiastic about teaching. As long as you weren’t super distracting in class, and you worked hard, the teachers would all get along fine with you. The main knock I have against Norris is with their approach at preparing students for secondary education. In my opinion, the majority of the classes I took that weren’t dual-credit were really easy. I wouldn’t be surprised if half of the students coming out of Norris find or will come to find themselves overwhelmed by their college courses. At the end of the day, however, I still think Norris as a whole is one of the better high schools in the area.

Norris School District has a extremely tight community, which makes it possible to connect with people and be involved in a multitude of activities. A tight community can also lead to intense favoritism. Norris is full of parents and certain teachers/coaches who control the outcome of sports, music, and other teams. Other than that, my experience at Norris High School has been filled with (mostly) helpful teachers and many memories.
What I like about Norris, is that the students stick up for each other and treat most others like a second family. Each class feels like a team who is there for each other ready to give a helping hand. The teachers always offer to help students who need a little more help and students often pitch in by giving helpful tips or advice. The parents of students are always extremely helpful with activities, fundraisers, and whatever else they might be needed for. There are always people, whether students or not, who are willing to help and make a difference for the better where and whenever they can.
