The teachers really care and it’s like a big family of friends! I’ve really enjoyed all the effort that teachers here put in not just caring about the grades but your well being as a person. I really feel at home at Norview High School with everyone that cares for me. This school has great resource officers that have great relationships with the kids rather than just trying to get them in trouble. The guidance counselors are very nice and want to see you do the very best in life. Our new principal goes out of his office and talks to the kids really building up that trust and relationship with the students. Norview doesn’t have a hate vibe to it, it’s very welcoming to people and you’ll find friends here quite quickly and easily.

Norview High School is a local High School under the Norfolk Public Schools. This local high school gives student a freedom around the school, every students are also involved with the administration, students are also encouraged to stay back after school and also stay back every Saturday if they need help. Teachers are always ready to help and are equipped of things they need to teach for every students to graduate. Students in this school may not be that perfect but they are discliplined, respectful and great!
Norview has excellent resources for information on colleges and future careers. Additionally, Norview has amazing school spirit and pride. Norview High School also runs an excellent engineering and leadership program titled LCSE (Leadership Center for Science and Engineering) and is the only high school in Norfolk, VA with a robotics team. However, as with any other public high school in the United States, the food during lunch isn’t very appetizing.
