Lake Norman isn't the best, but it's also not the worst. I started here in a sport so it really helped that I had a bunch of friends my first year of high school. They had a transition camp and though I was unable to attend it because of marching band, I feel that it was an amazing way to help kids in their transitions to a place they may think is scary. Or they may not. Either way it is helpful. Overall I so far have not had any problems with Lake Norman and I've enjoyed what little time I've spent here. Go Wildcats!
Review Lake Norman High School
The teachers are extremely warm and caring unlike other schools we have attended and made their transition to a new school easy. I must say I was impressed to see that the principal has such an incredible rapport with the students and the atmosphere is highly conducive to an enjoyable educational experience. A parent cannot complain when their children come home from school and are excited about sharing what they learned in school! I would not hesitate to recommend Lake Norman High School and now understand why everyone recommended this school district to us.
Lake Norman High School teachers can vary. Most of the teachers I have had in my high school career are amazing! U have had a few teacher who were not as helpful as a resource but I believe most schools have that. Overall the teachers are very hands on and they teach multiple different styles, ones that best benefit the students. They communicate well with what is happening in classes, I have never not known when a test is or quiz. As we all know AP classes grading is stricter then your honors or academic classes but I have never witnessed or hear of any unfair grading. Overall a great school with a great environment.
