Alum: I transferred to GM after my family moved. I was a freshman who entered before the end of the first semester, so it was hard to settle in. But, there was plenty of school work to devote myself to. There are accelerated, advanced, and basic tracks--suitable for the range of students who attend. In addition, there are lots of different electives to choose from and clubs/groups to join, which contribute to a good learning environment and educational experience.
The teachers are great. Their styles/techniques/personalities vary. Some are fun/laid-back, others, more strict, and then some are a combination. I enjoyed them and did my best to perform to their expectations/standards.
I had memorable times at GM, even though I personally didn't get super involved in school activities or have lots of friends. (But there are plenty of opportunities to do so. It's a good-sized school.) Attending the plays, concerts, football games, and the art show outside of school are some of the things I did.

Parent: Norfolk Academy provided an extraordinary educational journey for my two children, fueling their curiosity and inspiring them to explore new avenues that they might not have discovered without the incredible teachers and coaches at this school. My oldest child, who came in sixth grade, now studies engineering at an Ivy League university; he particularly loved the robotics team, as well as soccer, swimming, and crew teams. My youngest child, who is a senior at NA, came in first grade, and she has developed a passion for medicine and health, largely through the school's Global Health Fellows program and the Medical Scholars program.
