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.

I like that there is so many different opportunities for the students at Norwin High School, academically, athletically, and socially. Norwin offers many AP classes and gives students the opportunity to learn advanced material in high school. The athletic teams are all competitive and win or come close to winning state titles every year. There are also many clubs that students can be a part of related to books, community service, gender, business, and government.
Overall Norwin prepared me incredibly well for college. I didn’t feel overwhelmed my fall semester freshman year in college like many of my peers and had many opportunities that benefitted me at Norwin such as AP classes that allowed me to transfer many credits into college and exposure to material that would be covered again in college which gave me an advantage. My teachers all cared about me as a student for the most part and almost every teacher I had truly wanted me to succeed in their class and in the school in general.
