Norwalk High School Reviews

The one thing I really enjoy attending and being apart of Norwalk High school. Is the teachers.The teachers are willing to help you with any subject even if they do not teach that subject. They want you to strive to be the best you can be, and prepare you for the real world. The guidance counselors, are amazing! They deal with the whole school and are really focusing on the seniors to help us get ready for college and the work force. NHS has a variety of different clubs and sports that many other schools do not get. Norwalk also provides study tables after school so you can get more help one on one with a certain teacher and subject. The one thing I would like to see change or happen in the near future is for every student to graduate High School , and students helping one and another out, because we have couple students in each class not graduate, and I really want every student that walks through the main doors, to leave with a diploma in their hand.

Norwalk High School is a great place for motivated individuals to get involved. They have great sports teams, musical groups, an amazing art program, and an awesome staff!
Norwalk High School has provided me with a solid education and the self confidence to pursue my dreams. The teachers and staff have helped cultivate my love of learning, along with this they have established a personal connection that has made me feel comfortable coming to them with concerns about college. Another great quality of Norwalk is the amazing resources available to students; there is up to date technology, an expansive library, and many other aspects that help growth. The school is not perfect though, as nothing is. One thing I would like to see improvement in is the diversity among students, most people here are very similar and being different is generally frowned upon.
