I really enjoyed my experience at Norco high school. Most of the teachers were very helpful and interested in seeing me succeed. I was given the tools that I needed to grow academically. And, Through out my time at Norco high school, I was not only challenged, but motivated by my teachers and fellow students. I have enjoyed watching football games at our newly renovated stadium, displaying our colors and cheering for our small town heroes to score another touchdown. Go Norco!

At Norco High School, I was a vigorous honors and AP student, and I was a dedicated cadet at my school's Air Force Junior ROTC. I ultimately loved my experience at Norco High as all my teachers were excellent in their fields and extremely helpful when it came to my academic pursuits.

What I could also appreciate was our school's initiative to keeping students safe. One year, there was an incident where a few criminals attempted to sneak on our campus and hide within the population. They would have been successful had one of our security guards not stopped them. Norco was the first school in the district to mandate the wearing of visible ID badges on the students at all time to prevent more incidents like that from happening.

If I did have a criticism about the school, it would be that it is very small, which made things difficult for my JROTC Unit whenever we would try to introduce a new team. It would be so much easier if the school had more newer buildings like the N-building.
The school was not as strong in academics as it ideally should have been. However, the small school size allows one to get to know their teachers and become more involved. Few teachers at this school made an impact in my high school experience though the ones that did were amazing!
