As a college admissions officer for a private college in Boston, I have seen a remarkable change in the quality of the students from Norton High School during that past 10 years.

The school is good and getting better all the time. I cannot believe how they are able to keep doing more with the little money they have. The teachers are extremely dedicated.

I'm currently a student here and really there's nothing good about this school. The building is old and falling apart. There is absolutely no money. Sports are bad. Don't go to NHS!

I went to NHS for one year and I had a fantastic time, it was nice, and safe. Good times all around.

I'm a 1984 graduate of NHS. I never had a problem with any of the teacher's or school policies. English, with my mentor, Mrs Smith opened a future with me. Although the school has aged, that doesn't reflect the abilites of how great a job the teacher's are doing.
