At Norwin Senior High School, I truly like our system of education and how they push us to become the best students we can be. Along with announcements of our school having many students in honor roll and high achievements awards. However, what I dislike about Norwin Senior High School is limitation and very strict rules on having a great high school experience simply like at football games. Norwin Senior High School is a great school for academics but, due to strict rules it can at times get stressful and frustrating trying to live out my high school career.

Strong academics and personable and well educated teachers. Plenty of activities and sports, all well organized. College prep. Not very diverse area, and the culture was not very united.
Norwin seems like it would be a great school but definitely is not. Since the hiring of new principal Mr. Choby everything has gone downhill. Bathrooms left in disrepair, rampant heroin and other drug use. As well as a general lack of interest in what the students actually care for and want
