I.C. Norcom High School 5

I am a 1987 graduate of I.C. Norcom High School. It is well known that Norcom is the best school around with regard to pride, academics and respect from the other schools. The history of Norcom is long and the love and respect for the Maroon and Grey runs deep. It is worthy of your child's presence and then some!

I am a current student at I.C. Norcom and this school is horrible. The teachers are rude and they don't care if you know the material they teach or not. This school has some of the worst test scores for SOLs in the district. Also, this year they are making everyone wear uniforms on Mondays. You also have to join a club or you will fail (this I can understand, but the uniforms? No no no).

I am a 2005 graduate from I.C. Norcom, and I must say this school is full of pride, tradition as well as great ethics in education. When I attended there the Principal who is now deceased push for the SOL'S that was his drive. He cared as well as the teachers there. They motivated the students there to achieve short as well as long-term goals. Many of the teachers there aren't there for the money but for the students. Many are alumni as well. I.C. Norcom as educational values which dates back to when the school was located on ' Turnpike' as well as traditional values which I don't think other school in the city have. I.C. Norcom is like family after leaving you still fill close to the old friends as well as staff and you will be suprised who knows you by name! This is a Great School!!!!

As a student at Norcom I feel that it is a very good school. The teachers are great and they help us with stuff when we dont always fully understand. Everybody is very supportive of our other activities including clubs,sports,and mostly the band (which I am also apart of). Norcom is a great school.

I am not a parent, but I think that I.C. Norcom is a wonderful high school. We have great Math, Science and Technology Magnet Program. This is my senior year at Norcom, and I believe that if I can make it then any the students can passed their SOLS. Being a senior is going to be the best and expensive experience in my life. Norcom has a wonder AP and DE department (great teachers who live to teach their wonderful students). Make sure you take all your SOLS and atleast take one D. E. or A. P. class course. - Debra Alston

I am not a parent, but I think that I.C. Norcom is a great high school. The Math, Science, and Technology magnet program is phenominal, which I shoul know because I'm in it. This is my senior year at Norcom, and going to this school is going to be the best experience in my life. I have alot of good experinces, the best one is the college classes that you can take, and have college credit before you get into college.

I am not a parent, but I think this is one of the best high schools you could go to. I like most of the teachers and they are very helpful. When I was in ninth grade last school year that just passed I had one of the best Keyboarding teachers. I was in Office Administration and she taught us alot at the time I was mad she gave us so much work, but now I'm glad I know those things so I can check other people documents to see if they did it right. It also helps me to become a better typist than what I was when I was in eighth grade. I think the activities at the school are good too.
