Norwalk School District Reviews

The elementary schools are small and like neighborhood schools, which provides a good base for confidence and education for younger students. The teachers work very hard to provide a good education. In middle school and high school, where there is more student independence, there are also more student issues. I think like any middle and high school where the kids are a little tougher, you have certain teachers that don't want to put more effort in. Personally that was not an issue for me, but I did come across a few teachers that were not working as hard as they could have been. Overall, some classes were fabulous and some were not, basically you get out what you put in.

I enjoy attending public school in Norwalk Connecticut. The staff and faculty is constantly inspiring, and is always offering help if needed. If I were to alter one thing about the Norwalk Public School District, it would be the the schedule. There are four 90 minute class periods each day, which can often tend to become boring, sitting in a classroom for such a long period of time. However, if the schedule was altered back to seven 45 minute class periods, then school may be more enjoyable for students like me.
Throughout the years of attending Norwalk Public Schools, I gained knowledge and experience, but overall Norwalk School districts need to work more on college readiness with the students, getting ready for college is long process and tends to be difficult without the right kind of guidance. There are way more students than guidance counselors at the schools, and it would be impossible to have one guidance counselor per student but if there were a few more counselors or more meetings and check ups with the students it would be more beneficial for the student to understand more about college and the process of applying to it.
