Norwalk Community School District Reviews

My favorite part about Norwalk HS are all the opportunities to get college credits while still in high school. I’ll be going into college with over 30+ college credits which is super exciting. What I don’t like so much about Norwalk is how tough it is to be friends with certain groups because of how clique-y it is. It seems as if the teachers do nothing about it. Also, I’ve had multiple instances with teachers where they treated me horribly and when I took higher action, nothing changed. Being a mixed girl in a mostly Caucasian school is difficult, but when you feel constantly outcasted for it; it makes it worse.

Norwalk is a pretty good school, but it’s obviously not perfect. This year we’re in and will be throughout this year and next year, but it doesn’t effect most people’s routes to class much. They’ve also changed the schedule so we start 20 minutes later and our lunch period moved, but the adjustment has been pretty smooth. As a junior I’m taking more challenging classes and i feel like my teachers are there for me when I need help. Overall I think Norwalk is pretty great, but obviously there could be improvements.
Overall I had a great experience while in the Norwalk community school district. Academics are top notch, teachers are the leaders in their field, sports programs are competitive and advanced, and the district is just well kept as a whole.
