I really love how challenging my classes are. Taking honors and AP classes have really been helpful in pushing me in preparation for college. The teachers have been super helpful each year with making sure I understand the material we’re covering and making sure that if I need help I get it. Tutoring and counseling is always available. I also love how many clubs and activities there are outside of class, I participate in many different things like Spanish club, peer mentor and buddy club, and a mental health positivity club. However, I don’t like how the school handles some issues, for example, a transgender person had to use the nurses bathroom because they didn’t want to deal with it. I feel like the school could work on being open to change and meeting criteria and options for all types of students. Overall though my time at norwin has been splendid.
The overall teaching environment of Norwin School District is excellent. Every student is given the necessary resources to excel in academics. Such as, a varying number of study hall opportunities. With the being said, I would love to see a change in their technological advancements. For example, possibly providing a personal electronic for each of the students in junior high and high school. This would guarantee digital accessibility among the children.
