    "The school needs to be expanded. More up to date programs. The band needs new band equipment. The entire school needs a new change. More black history classes. Mr. Coffee needs to retire because he was the first teacher to tell a student she's unreachable because he refused to break down a math problem. The food sucks. Blame it on poor management and administration ran by the school."

    "I.C. Norcom is a great high school. It has a rich and interesting back story and gives its students a reason to be proud. Norcom gives back to the community and makes students want to be the best version of themselves. Being an I.C. Norcom Greyhound is an amazing accomplishment and I'm proud to have graduated from this wonderful school."

    "What I love about I. C. Norcom high school is how dedicated the teachers and staff are in guiding the students to earn an education and help them to choose the right path that will lead them to success. One other thing I love about the school is its' sprit and unit. The students learn to work together in a modern environment which shows them great communication and social skills."

    "Going to a majority African American schools had its ups and downs. Other schools and teachers often looked down on us because of the reputation the school has. And I often felt like even some of the teachers in the school looked down upon many of the students. Just like any school there arekids who acted out, this caused many teachers to give more attention to the "bad" kids then to the students who were actually focused on their education. I also felt like many of the teachers didn't challenge the students, we learned the bare minimum to pass the SOL. Although there were many things I didn't like about this school, there were also many things I loved. School Spirit being one. Football games and Basketball games are always large event that many alumni come to. I also met some amazing people at I.C. Norcom including friends and teachers. Although I didn't always like many things there, I will always be a greyhound."
