Norfork elementary has its problems and is now limiting parent involvement most of the teachers are experienced and curious some think they rule even over the parent and the principle and superintendent is allowing it If you are an involved parent and want to work with the school for the good of your child look else were.

Norfork High School is fantastic. The teachers care about the students and help to keep parents informed. The principal has many years experience and is respected by the children. The parent involvement exceeded all of my expectations. Above all, this is a nice & quiet school. You dont have to worry about all the things you would have in the larger cities.
