    I've been a parent at norview for 4 years now. Norview has improve each year academically. Norview also incourages students to strive for more. Kodos to the principal and vice princepal but some staff and teachers need to learn how deal students and parents in a better way.

    My child's teachers has made a tremendous positive role model to my child. At such a young age she has learned a lot from being responsible taking responsibilities and taking on leadership. I am very greatful to have great teachers for my child to learn from. Norview Elem. is an excellent school. Very safe environment with disciplined students.

    I think that the students at Norview are doing great academically. I would like to see more sports being offered at the school itself. Other than that the office staff would benefit from a customer service class as it is critical that parents as well as the students are in a friendly environment. -Renada Cotton

    I'm pleased with Norview's progress. The Principle teachers and staff care about the students and want them to excell. They provide discipline academics a safe environment and positive feedback to the students. Although there is not alot of parent involvement the students continue to strive and exceed expectations.
