Norwich needs a lot of improvement. The taxes are high, crime is on the rise, and the school system is terrible. We need change in all aspects of our community but I would love to see a change in the school because as of right now when it comes time for my son to begin school he will be going to catholic school. The bullying, lack of teaching, and lack of discipline from administrators is outrageous. Students are out of control and disrespect to teachers and students have developed a fear of going to school because of bullying.

Norwich, Connecticut is right between two casinos, Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun. They have brought the population of this town up, the crime up and the need for more social services programs. The problems I have run into in Norwich is that there are a lot of programs for felons, drug addicts and people with mental health issues. There is nothing here to help single mother's with no problems at all except trying to survive.
Norwich has practically every you need in a town, a reliable hospital, dentists, multiple grocery stores, restaurants, and so much more. The only thing that comes to mind when I think of change would be adding more fun activities and restaurants, since as of now we have practically nothing. As a teenager I have very rarely hung out or participated in anything not school-related in our town. Yet besides this, Norwich provides a person with practically every need they could have.
