    "I attended NHS from 99-03. It was the best 4 years of my life! I transferred to Norwalk High from Bell High. I lived in Maywood for 13 years, and Norwalk was the best choice my parents could have made for my sisters and I. Norwalk was a big change, but a great one with the school being a traditional school, Sept - June. Less vacation than an year round school like Bell. The teachers were great! My graduation class was one of the largest in Norwalk History. Our Counselors were great at meeting with us on one on ones. The Principal and School Board Members would sit in and observe our classes. My sisters graduated in 2009 and 2011. They both went on to pursue degrees in History and Psychology with respectable Higher Education Institutions. I have worked for the Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles as an Adminsitratice Assistant for Upper Management. I am now working for a World-Renowned Research Institute with the top 5 funding from the NIH as a Pre-Award Specialist. If it wasn't for the great teachers and counselors of Norwalk High School, we would not have had these great opportunities now. Norwalk is as great of a school as any other, as long as your child makes it."

    "People talked about how this school is so bad before.Now its better then ever.The staff and principal tried their hardest and encouraged us and motivated us to do better.Especially with our test scores.It's not the schools fault they get kids that don't want to do anything and don't want to listen and slack off and not want to graduate.Just because of test scores this school is bad?No its the kids who don't try and get sent to El Camino.We now have a new principal and more new staff members and their always on the quad trying to motivate us to get to class earlier and getting to know us.Norwalk made a lot of changes over the years and now its better than ever!I love this school!Been here all my high school years and about to graduate.Honestly I learned so much,the teachers are so great and staff too and the new principal also.He's just trying to make it better and this school will be even more better over the years!!CLASS OF 2013"

    "I graduated from this school 3 years ago, before the renovations and such. I was not happy with the school while I first attended there but over the years I met all sorts of wonderful people, staff and students. I believe Norwalk High is an okay place to have you son or daughter go to school there because the staff is only trying to make it better and the students are waiting to make new friends. The reason why I say its an okay school is because after I graduated I went to a UC and well academically I was behind the other students. I was told that the teaching and overall class ratings have gone up but if not just means for those students who want to attend a 4-year university, then go to Cerritos College as well. I will always cherish the memories!! PURPLE & GOLD!!"

    "good school; up to students and parents if they want to succeed and attend a 4 year college; further education available if you work towards it otherwise you will fail."

    "Our child was really looking forward to this school year. She never had ANY problems before. Now their are tears every week. Parents need to visit the classrooms. They need to go to real rooms not new science place they show off. Classes are so large you cannot move around. The rooms are dirty and do not look like they are new construction like they brag about. The restrooms are disgusting. You cannot find the counselors. At lunch it is as crowded as the classrooms. There is no place to move. We are on the border line and will return to the other district. Checking out next week. Thank you. We are glad we found this place and could find something better."
