Loy Norrix High School Reviews
Loy Norrix is a very diverse school where the sense of community is evident in the staff and students! The majority here treat each other like family! The teachers are approachable and show concern for student learning! They provide after school tutoring for students who need extra support in any academic area. I enjoy attending school and spending time with my peers! Many I have known since my freshman year! I have built trust and true friendships with some who come from different backgrounds! Loy Norrix offers a variety of classes anywhere from basic classes to Advanced Placement classes. Students have the option to join different clubs and organizations such as Forensics, Improv Team, Travel Club, U Knight, Peacejam, Gender and Sexuality Alliance, as well as many other interesting clubs and organizations! Loy Norrix is a great place to get a four year education.
What I Iike about Norrix is that they do their best to get kids graduated and prepared for the next step in life, especially through classes like parenting, finance, and college readiness. Some of the rules can be kind of weird, because some teachers are very strict about them and some are lenient. There are many different cultures within the school. Most of the teachers know what they are doing. There is always a police officer or two in the building along side the security guards. The school is within the area for both Kalamazoo and Portage police station. Most of the kids really enjoy their school overall and don’t understand why the public views our school poorly. Sports are pretty good except for the varsity football team (sorry guys). Students can get a little out of control with fights and not helping on the upkeep of the building, but the staff does their best to try and fix that problem. I liked the school, I just wish there was a little more control over the kids.
I had a rough time freshman and sophomore year and there were a lot of teachers in this building who I felt genuinely cared about me and wanted to help. We have many interesting classes and supportive adults who will help individual students toward graduating and reaching their goals. The reason I give three stars, however, is that sometimes the rules and regulations here don’t make sense and are frustrating for students. Also, many classes as well as the hallways during passing time are overcrowded which causes anxiety and in some cases aggression in lots of students. I also believe students should be allowed more time for lunch.
