Norristown Area School District Reviews

Fantastic programs to meet most students needs and interests. Teachers are engaged and want to see students succeed. New principal in 2017 has made terrific changes. School spirit and pride has improved tremendously over the past 3 years. The downside is that a lot of school resources are required to deal with a small percentage of students with serious problems, behavioral and otherwise. Universal lunch program ensures that all students get a healthy meal during the day. Not enough parents are involved in supporting the school and student activities.

this is my first year in this high school but I can guarantee you that it is one of the best high schools in this country. First of all when we take a look at the administration, we will find out that the administration is just composed of educated people who take care of every student in the high. I am not saying that they have the best teachers in the country as long as I am new to the country but Norristown Area High School has really high competitive and passionate teachers who are willing to teach those who are ready to learn. The security in the high is just perfect, free lunch with good conditions and many activities or clubs that prepare you in the future! NAHS is certainly not the best school but one day it will because WE ARE ON THE PATH TO SUCCESS
I really enjoy being part of NAHS! The education there is one of the best I have received. The school is very diverse and has a great sense of community. Overall, I love being a NAHS student.
