    "I enjoyed the 'smallness' of the school while not having that small school feeling. It is also a double edged sword as the hallways can become cramped, especially at the T intersections. The teachers are willing to teach, the library has a wide selection of books and an upgraded tech lab-which will be ready for the 17-18 school year."

    "I really like how Norwalk has that not too big, but not too small feel to it. For the most part, people are able to participate in whatever activities they wouldn't like, and overall participation and school spirit is really high. The high school itself has definitely been outgrown, and due to the suburban aspect, there is a definite lack of diversity. Other than that, the staff is really good, and you are guaranteed a good education at this school."

    "Overall, NHS is a very good school. The main issue with it is the incredible lack of involvement on the part of the principal, Chris Basinger. The deans basically run the high school. If you are looking for a school where the principal knows you by name, Norwalk isn't the place. Thoroughly unimpressed by Chris Basinger."

    "I honestly can say that I love going to this school. I feel like the classrooms are filled just enough to where you know everyone and everyone can have a voice and be heard. I know almost everyone in my grade and even the grades below. I believe this shows how well our school is able to interact as a whole. My favorite experience was definitely when our school's football team made it to state. I felt like the whole school/community came to watch. It wasn't just the athletes that went to watch, it was everyone, which was really great. I believe what makes this school unique is how everyone is able to get into college courses during high school. It gives great opportunities to get college credits while still in high school. I would choose this school again because everyone is so interwoven together. My high school years are something I will never forget. Thanks to Norwalk High School."
