Our schools is highly underrated, this is an amazing school and people don't notice that. Sure we have some problems with the immature kids that break the wall, but I believe we have more student and teachers building that wall back up! We will be the best school in Pennsylvania, just takes time and effort and the help of parents, teachers, and us the students. Got to get back to work! "Class Of 2016!"

One way to improve norristown high is to hire teachers with passion. The school identifies problem children but does little to help when requested by parents. The actions of the faculty plays a major part in the failure and success of the students. I am a parent of a student who had his joy robbed by disgruntled teachers. It only takes one bad teacher to ruin hope and optimism in a child.

I am currently a sophomore at Norristown, and for the most part, I like my school. I like my teachers and my friends, but my other peers are what ruins the school honestly. People need to get their act together so we can actually be treated like we are in high school. It's really just that group of immature kids that ruins everything, including our reputation. Because of them, it give a norristown a bad impression. Of course, every school has a group of uneducated baboons, but its almost like it's too excessive here. Also, our athletic programs lack in comparison to other schools. Why can't we have a good athletic director to help mend our athletic programs? As a 3 sport athlete, it is embarrassing to go against other schools with our lack of coaches and discipline. As for school programs, I wish we had more AP class opportunities. I am satisfied with everything else that has to do with academics however, and feel as if I am learning with the help of my caring teachers.

Im currently a junior at NAHS and i really like this school. Teachers show that they really care about the students and what they teach. Whenever a student needs extra help, a teacher is always their for extra help and guidance after school. I highly recommend this school to everyone.

This school is excellent for the student that takes advantage of what is offered, and works for their education. Perhaps the most often perceived notion is that the school is unsafe. Issues that existed have, in many instances, been cleaned up by a change in administration. There are issues, but there are issues at any school.

My daughter went through catholic school from 1st to 8th. She went to NAHS from 9th to 12th. I was extremely satisfied with her education and her sports activites. Her teachers were caring and supportive.

Noristown High is a wonderful school if your child takes advantage of all the programs and resources availible. The teachers in this school are some of the best educated, most caring, and have the desire to make all their students succesful. I am sure every school has some discipline problems but this school deals with theirs as quickly and professionaly as possible. I have seen many students come out of Norristowns schools and become sucessful, well-rounded, professionals.
