Norris Elementary has a lot going on and the new principal seems to be on top of things. After more than ten years of driving to and from that school the drop off and pick up of children is far more efficient than before. This school is Montessori and traditional. It also provides top notch preschool for children who do not speak English as a primary language. All schools in the Millard Community study the same curriculum and take the same standardized tests. I am not sure how they rank with the rest of the schools in the area or country but I would guess they are higher on the list for quality education.
Norris Elementary, Omaha, NE. Seems to be a growing problem with bullying at this school. Some teachers care and will take a active role in solving the problem, and other will turn the other way and say the kids just need to spend more time together. If your child has an IEP, good luck! Some teachers and staff do not look at it or follow it. Fact and reality from a parent, and from other parents that send their children there.
I have had great experiences at this school.The teachers seem to really care about there students. The bathroom is not a problem with the little kids anymore.They have moved the 4th and 5th graders at the back of the school.
Only complaint is that the tiny kids (Kinder.) share bathrooms with the big kids (5th grade). This leads to some bullying.
