Norwalk School District Reviews

They did their job and helped me prepare for college and my possible future in science! The teachers were wonderful to work with and the schools' other clubs, groups, and teams really give life to the community. The main thing I would want to see fixed is the amount of available resources for the students. Although we do have access to computers and the internet, the speed at which they function makes it difficult for the students to complete their work/ hand in assignments. Because so many students are using the internet at once, it causes it to slow down immensely. The schools themselves are well built, however since they are so old they are starting to lose the color they might have had in the past. Luckily, the schools are starting to be renovated to fit modern technology meaning they’ll be more of us to students.

My overall experience with the Norwalk School District was great! I met a lot of amazing teachers and friends. Every school I went to had amazing staff and the schools were always clean. School spirit was always a big thing at this District and I always found the environment to be welcoming and fun. They also offer plenty of extracurricular activities. It was everything you could really ask for out of a School District!
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.
