These teachers are very effective at what they do. Getting kids up to speed on academics while working on some of the children's english at the same time.

How this school only gets a 3 baffles me. Safe enviornment, good teachers, happy students and no overcrowded classes. This school is great. My daughter went here in the first and second. We moved to Georgia and boy do we miss Nora. Especially my daughter. Sure nora has to spend time getting some kids up to speed that don't know english but the other kids aren't left waiting for those kids. I believe most of the teacher are billingual with spanish and that helps keep everything even. Your children will love the diversity of the school and teachers. This school is solid.

I love Nora! The staff here provides a safe and nurturing environment for all students. Student diversity is celebrated and supported each and every day. The community involvement with the school is unbelievable, as countless volunteers work to support students. When you walk through the halls of the school, you can easily see that every staff member is committed to helping students grow academically, socially, and emotionally. I am so honored to get to work here everyday!

Nora is a great school school in a supportive community. The Nora staff embraces the very diverse learners that they serve. They provide excellent educational programming for all students; however, with more state funding, they could provide even more opportunities for students beyond the traditional school day.
