I fell in love with my school's art department, the teachers were all so supportive and nice! They each have their own way of connecting with students and it is amazing how hard they try, whether in their teaching, or in their ways of making learning fun. The only thing I would change would be the school board eliminating classes based off of their budget, reduced by a useless spending of money on a baseball field only one team uses.

Norwin High School has shown me some things that will help me further in life. I've had many class opportunities that took part of my interests and hobbies. I feel that Norwin is a pretty average school. Everything that makes up the school is pretty average. Norwin does offer many different classes to suit everyone's likes. From arts to music, to sports, to foreign language, etc. There is something for everyone. I can't really complain about my school and I always know nothing is perfect and there is always room for improvement. Norwin is a great school and school district.
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.
