I now have my third child going to this school. This is such a wonderful, caring, and up to date school. My second child entered hating school and was behind due to it. By the end of 7th grade she was so upset to leave for summer break. She was loving it so much. She is now a straight A student a Centennial is graduating with honors. If you can send your child here please do, you will see what I mean. The one on one teaching is amazing.
Norris Middle School has an attentive staff, and well qualified teachers. My two oldest sons have both attended school here over the past few years, and are strong academic students, but well supported by their studies here. The principal, Mr. Carr, is pleasant, and very suited to his profession. He runs a good campus, and staff. We have been pleased with all administrators, and teachers at this school.
I am a student of Norris middle school and between the teachers and students there is more favoritism with some students them others. The teachers at Norris aren't exited about teaching and the kids are not interested so they don't get it. As a former student I would say they don't decrease the population of bulling they increase it and that's why I hate going there. There are better schools in oil dale where I live and the yard aid (staff) try to get you in trouble and I wouldn't recommend this school to anyone who like learning because they will ruin it for you. I know they did for me!!
This school is a joke. We recently moved to this area and my child is already falling behind academically, the standards are so low. The teachers are unmotivated and do not follow through with what they say. The office staff are far to busy controlling (borderline bullying) students instead of acting like adults. These people can't even clear an absence correctly! The principal(s) are no better. We are already looking for a new place to live because I have to get my child out of this school. Do your child a favor and avoid this substandard school.
