Aside from an issue with the previous principal and gifted teacher, I would have to say the years my children have been at this school have been good. I have found that many of the other parents can be a bit exclusionary though. This will be the 5th year for me as an NHP parent, Mrs. Beasley as principal left quite a bit to be desired, especially following after Dr. Hutchens, who was well loved. I have high hopes for the new principal, Mrs. Smiley. We've been quite pleased with just about every member of staff we have encountered at this school, and some can be overlooked (like the horrible woman in the lobby).
Great Teachers and really care. My daughter loves it and I do also. The staff knows me by name and are great with the kids.
Great School. If all schools could be this helpful, this caring, and this intelligent about their educational programs, this country would be so much better off.
Our family has been associated with Norfolk Highlands for 7 years. We have had three boys go through NHS and have 1st grader this year. Office staff truly cares about the students. The teachers sincerly desire for the students to succeed and become good citizens. The PTA is small but active. The one thing I am disappointed in is the level of involement from parents and it only gets worst the older the kids get. Great job Dr. Hutchens and staff. Wish I had a few more boys to start at Norfolk Highlands; we will have to wait for my Granddkids!!
Norfolk Highlands has always been a good small town school. The atmosphere has changed so much that I could not wait to get my son out of there. I would not send any child I care about to Norfolk Highlands.

I have been especially pleased with NHPS as a parent that only placed my children in Parochial Schools for better education. Norfolk Highlands exceeded my expectations and the only drawback preventing this school from being rated as a 10 is that no foreign language is offered to students. I highly recommend this school and the staff and principal are outstanding mentors.
Wonderful school. My son is in third grade and my daughter is in a Special Needs class and has special medical issues. This school has the best nurse. The office staff is friendly and helpful. Great Principal, she is approachable, friendly and has your childs best interest at heart! Best school in this area.
Wonderful staff!! Great overall school...My daughter is entering 2nd grade this year and has been going since K. A+++
My daughter has attended this school from pre-school to first grade. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Norfolk Highlands. The teachers are caring,understanding and patient. The nurse is the best around! The bus drivers have made sure my daughter and I are comfortable. My child has special medical needs and they have gone above and beyond making sure she has everything she needs to succeed! I think this school deserves an A!
