Norton is a great community. I was raised and attended school in the community K - 12. Norton is a smaller community that provides activities, programs, and shopping for the residents as well industry. I have chosen to purchase a home in the community and enjoy supporting the community and their strong school system.

Norton has a wonderful small town feel and is the perfect place for raising a family. Home to the original Sieberling family, responsible for starting Akron’s Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co., Norton has a rich history and a strong, far reaching, sense of community.
Norton is a small city most people don't know about but being small there is not much trouble here. The public schools are great you learn a lot there. Its right next to Barberton and since Norton is a small city it takes like 5-10 mins to get there. The only thing that's really bad about it is that there are not many jobs there and there are stores closing down there and they are not opening anything new. What I want to see change is them opening some new stores to open up some new jobs and fixing the potholes.
