I am a student and I have to say my 8th grade year was absolutely amazing. I was part of the first eighth class. What more can be said about the school. It's spectacular!

We have two children at Norterra and could not be happier with the faculty and administration. We are consistently impressed with the commitment to go beyond what is necessary and expected in order to help our kids achieve.

I like this school a lot because the teachers are fun. The gifted teacher there challenges all of the students who are in the gifted program. The staff is amazing. The specials teachers are good. My 4th grade teacher is very funny and she is amazing. We rotated for science and I learned a lot.

We are thrilled with Norterra Canyon. The technology is amazing. Smart Boards are in many classrooms and laptop carts are shared at every grade level. Walking through the campus you can see computers out and being used in every classroom. The staff is friendly. There is a nice feeling on the campus. ...  Read more
