Normal Community High School is the key to opportunity and success. In many students’ high school experiences, there are series of drama, stress, and academic frustration that holds students back from achievements. However, when opening the doors of Normal Community, there is always warm-welcoming faces all around that make every day of high school manageable. The teachers, administrators, and faculty are so considerate when helping to make sure each student achieves their goals after graduation. The school provides electives that give their students a learning path toward any of their sixteen different career clusters. Many students have found their passions and their career path from many academic challenges. The school offers honors, dual credit, and various advanced-placement Courses that benefit students drastically. Normal Community High School is the reason that these past four years of my life, will be some of the most memorable experiences.
Normal Community offers a top quality education and environment. Many of the teachers are excellent and care about students' learning in general. The facilities are exceptional as well with a recent grant being used to add technology to the building. One of the problems with Normal Community is the shifting focus to Standard Based Grading and the favoritism to certain extracurricular clubs and sports. Despite this, the atmosphere is great and the school offers a great place to learn.
