I have one child who has graduated from Loy Norrix and is currently in her last year of grad school at WMU, one who is a junior at Norrix and one who will attend there in a couple more years. I am a proud Loy Norrix parent who loves that my kids are in a school where the teachers and coaches are so invested in their students having a positive experience, where there is diversity and where there are many ways for student involvement. Swimming has been a huge part of my kids life at Norrix - I am grateful for an amazing coach that literally gives blood, sweat and tears to his students everyday of the year!

I would definitely choose to come back and do my high school experience over again. I almost don't want it to end! This school is very diverse and has so many different cultures and backgrounds of people attending. No two people are just alike. There is an abundance of outgoing personalities, loving teachers to connect with, and events you would not want to miss. The football games every year are crazy! This school is full of spirit and people who put in so much into this school.
Loy Norrix is a very diverse school that has a lot to be proud of. The only thing I wished to have changed from when I was a student was morale. Very few students liked the school. The classes were either insanely difficult or the complete opposite so not everyone felt that they could succeed. As a result, we had a significant gap between the 'smart' and 'dumb' students and it hurt a large number of students' confidences.
