Overall NHS is a good school. There is a problem with Special Education. There is little support for students with Emotional/Behavioral Disabilities. These students are placed in Special Education classes with students who have learning disabilities when they are disruptive in the general education setting. Administration will not support SpEd teachers when these students become disruptive during class. SpEd teachers are reprimanded for not keeping their classes "in order".

My oldest child is now in the midst of a very demanding sophmore year at NHS, but with caring and excellent teachers, she is holding up well and learning lots. Go NHS Tigers!!

Care only about getting kids 'ready' for college and little about real learning and education. Principal and her staff only understand students they see as 'normal' (which means ones that are like their own children). We will be glad to be done with this school.

This is a very good school. One bad thing..hallways are crowded. Security is mediocre, and my son has went there for two years and I have never on one occasion have even been able to speak to a principal. The principals never deal directly with problems.

This school provides a laundry list of AP and advanced classes, as well as superb AEGIS honors programs. The student body is usually cohesive and spirited, but this sometimes causes problems with the school's cross-town rival, Norman North. Band, orchestra, choir, and other fine arts are well represented, and the students have the opportunity to produce multiple capble television programs. The clubs range from Bike Club to Young Republicans to the Black Student Alliance, so there are many extracurricular pursuits available. On balance, the administration is receptive to parent concerns, but the student body is still working to find a voice. As far as funding and red tape go, NHS is a good example of a quintessentially public school, but not so much so that kids aren't able to prosper. This school consistently churns out National Merit Scholars, Academic All-Staters, and other high achievers.

The one thing that stands out is the quality and quanity of courses offered. With budget cuts, most schools are limited to the courses they can offer. So I really feel that is a plus for Norman. As for sports and activities, they are on target. I think most parents are actively involved, but there are few that should get more involved in their students academics and activities. As for the leadership, they are quick to respond and follow policies and procedures.

We moved from out of state in the middle of last year. Our daughter, then a freshman, was thrilled with her new school. We have found the faculty and staff to be knowledgeable, professional, and caring. The courses offered are challenging and varied. The entire school embraces and celebrates diversity and has provided our child with an excellent learning environment.

I'm not a parent. But I was a student at Norman High. I know for some, high school is a traumatic experience. But, I must say that I enjoyed my high school years at Norman High. The community is so involved in the school, & there is a huge level of caring teachers & staff. I'm blessed to have such fond memories.
