Norwalk School District Reviews

I was an out of district student, who had the ability to attend a high school in the Norwalk school district. I thoroughly enjoyed my opportunity to study at a Norwalk high school. The teachers that met along the way were all extremely helpful, and I never had a bad experience with any of them. Besides the academic stand point, the other departments are amazing. I was a part of the music department at my high school, and it was an amazing opportunity for me to branch out and learn new skills. I discovered my talent and love for singing. I especially loved the teachers that helped me within the music department. I have made friendships with both students and teachers that have left me with wonderful memories of my high school years.

The school district is average in comparison to the overall state. Other surrounding areas like Darien and Westport have far more superior facilities and academics. Norwalk is fine but anyone looking for a better education is more likely to send their kids to a private school in the area, whether elementary, middle, or high school. Overall, the school district needs work because its academics are not the best and its facilities are outdated. For a CT school, it is average and right with the other school districts in the county.
The Norwalk School district is a very safe and protected community. The administration goes out of their way to make sure strict rules and protocol are enforced to ensure the safety of all students. Although students are safe, not all students received the best education possible (in my opinion). Most of my grades in school were at the mercy of the educator. My personal experience with the math department as Norwalk High School was not a good one. I received straight A's my senior year except for one class, Pre-Calculus in which I received a D, and brought my entire GPA down to a 2.9. Had I been placed with a different teacher things might have gone differently for me.
