I transferred to NSD after living abroad for 5 years, and at first, I was worried that the level of education would not be the same as what I had in Europe. However, I love it here. The teachers are so passionate about what they do, and the students are so motivated to do well, and the counselors are great. There are many opportunities for higher level courses, and lots of ways to connect with peers. However, one thing I struggle with is the diversity, at least at my school. It is a mainly upper-middle class white student body with some students of color, and coming from abroad, it is a lack of diversity I am not used to. However, all in all, NSD is great!

Great school district everyone the worlds for the district is extremely supportive of the students! The teachers are great and they work well with the students. The district is ahead of the game, and they know what they're doing. They know how to deal with problems they are faced with and come up with reasonable plans to resolve the issues. The athletics are also great in the district!
I give the Norshore School District 4 stars because of the diversity, the many different class options, and the after school activities.
The Norshore School District is very diverse. There are students from many different countries. This gives students a more diverse perspective. The reason why there isn’t 5 stars is because most of the teachers are white and the custodians are Asian.
Another great thing about the school district is the class elective options. There are options that support a lot of different career options. Such as STEAM, culinary arts, historian, teacher, etc.
The final reason is the after school activities. There are so many different teams and clubs that compete and some that don’t. That gives students so many options to get together with each other and build a community. These reasons are why I give the Norshore School District 4 stars.
