Lake Norman High School Reviews

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.
With 3 children in High School at the same time, it can be quite challenging. Having said that, Lake Norman High has made it a pleasure and easy transition for them in every way. From the Sports Programs they offer and the great Coaches that teach them to the extensive amount of class choices and challenging classes offered with superb teachers, it has been an absolute great experience for my children coming to this school. Having two kids coming out of the IB program and another coming out of Langtree Charter, Lake Norman High made it an easy transition for all of them. There school counselor, Mrs. Lehew was great in helping them pick classes and in getting to know each of them personally to help them make decisions regarding their schedules. My children are thriving at this school. In my opinion, having a child/student come out of this High School, would be an asset to have in any University or College.
At Lake Norman we have multiple clubs and athletes. Clubs include Friends for Change, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Keywanettes, etc. Since there is a big variety of clubs there is basically one for everyone! Also sports is a big extracurricular activity at Lake Norman
