Norris Middle School 2

This school is for you if you value sports over academics and the good ol' boy system over fairness. Expect your academically gifted child to tutor others all day long since there is no gifted program. You will also have to fight for an IEP for your special needs child. Your child will also be bullied relentlessly with little care from the inept administration. Parental involvement is seen as intrusive and annoying. This is a very negative environment for children. Norris' only saving grace is the many CARING teachers who do their best to be a light in the darkness to their students. If you are planning on moving to Nebraska, please consider another district.

This is a wonderful middle school! Not sure what happened to the other parent who reviewed this school. My son loves his teachers, they keep things interesting and show great interest in my son, his questions, his learning, and his enjoyment of school. They have been more than willing to meet before or after school to offer extra assistance when asked... It's a great physical school building and I have been impressed with all the staff I've met. I'm very happy with the education my son is receiving!

Too many burned out or inflexible teachers. Little understanding for kids with different learning styles or disabilities that affect learning. Treatement of students is dictatorial - more interested in enforcing dress codes than working with kids having difficulties learning. Laughable special ed program and no gifted program. No PTO. No parent involvement.
