Norview is not as great as people say it is as of this the 2014-15 year so far there have been so many food fights like once per day. Milks being thrown on to the central staircase 2nd floor. I fear for this school because the some of the students are on the road to self destruction and take other people with them by causing a disruptive learning environment. And I do wonder how some teachers don't see or hear any thing are they like blind or def. The administration is rather good. But the security guards are problems when they don't know the names of teachers because I was accused as of writing my own pass.

Norview is a good school as a former student i know it has some issues but then again most schools do. The teachers help when they are needed and their after school activities cater to everyone. I was in their robotics program and their culinary program i would suggest this school to anyone moving to the area. I will have my children attend this school to experience the same thing i did there a warm and welcoming faculty and staff and also kids that are all willing to make friends.

The administration at Norview (with scant exception) is horrible. The principal leads the tone of the administration. She talks about challenges within the community, and poor parent involvement, and yet if a parent wishes to meet with her, she will refuse, as she chooses. The school's actions are in no way congruent with its mission statement. In short, unless your child is an absolute top-performer, Norview is not a good choice. An entire class of local kids enters Norview each year, and a large number of these students leaves before graduation. It seems the school wants it this way. If you can avoid it, stay away from Norview.

I give this a 5 star -- the teachers are all about education, they work with their students and stay behind when a child is needing assistance. You cant go wrong with education, support, achievements, athletics. They are here for these children.

I am a graduate of Norview and I am now sending my son here as well, so far so good. The atmosphere is much calmer than his previous school and the teacher's seem to be seasoned and well qualified. Mrs. Stealey and Mr. Fraley are doing a wonderful job keeping the school safe and providing an atmosphere conducive to learning. I can't wait for a successful 2007-08 school year.

Norview is a great school and has an outstanding NJROTC program. With the addition of the new SNSI and NSI, they have made a huge difference in the performance of the NJROTC unit. As parents of a daughter in the NJROTC program, the instructors attempt to make each cadet feel a part of a team. Great school/great NJROTC unit!

In the last couple of years the NJROTC program at Norview has grown to be the best in Norfolk. I went to Norview, my brother and Husband went to Norview, My step sons went to Norview, my son & daughters will go to Norview. My Husband and I are members of the NJROTC parent boosters. Great School........
