    I graduated from normandy in 2012 although i did have some passionate teachers the angry discouraging teachers were far more prevalent. While I was attending I had a teacher ( Macalla) come up to me in the cafeteria and start making fun of the way I did my hair. She carried on to tell me that because I'm different I will have no future. I went to the office crying my eyes out and they laughed at me. This incident has stuck with me and still hurts because she never apologized. This school overlooks what should be immediately addressed. The only good thing about Normandy is the Normandy Invader Marching band.

    I graduated this weekend from NHS one of the best schools around. The teachers are recognized on a national level the students are the best in the district and the administration is finally one that cares about the children. I hope that Normandy continues to run things as they do now so that those who have not graduated yet have a chance to enjoy their high school years as I have enjoyed my Senior year.

    School is Decent. I am attending it as a senior this year. Teaching staff is pretty good except a few teachers. Admisinstraion is a joke.

    I am amazed at how the students that are blatantly in the wrong are held unaccountable for their actions. While the ones that these previous student hold grudges over can say/do whatever they want and nothing happens to them. While the student who is trying to avoid the situation entirely is held responsible. Please tell me what we are teaching them here.....If I am in the wrong and know it and get away with it then things are good....while the others who try to do their best are treated like basically dirt????? I just wanted to add my opinion.....they want to pass a levy.....first they need to implement a better way of handling things.

    This was a terrible school. I went to school here and I did go on to get a biology degree and am now a med student. This was no thanks to Normandy. I had to take several classes to 'catch up' to what they should have taught. I had old books teachers who didn't care. Overall it was lacking. Education should be more.

    Graduated in 2001 and went on to get a Bachelor's Degree in Mechanical Engineering. I am very pleased with the quality of education that the school provided. Parma levies never pass so money was always an issue though!

    Normandy High School supports and encourages school spirit which fosters respect for the school and teachers. The children that get involved with the school activities tend to do better with the academic program because there is a sense of pride for there school and there personal achievements. The parents are very involved in the school and receive the support and encouragement from the principal and staff. Many of the kids that participate in the activities carry a 3.0 or high GPA. The academic program includes courses for kids that need to be challenged to prevent boredom and includes programs and assistance for kids that need alittle extra help. Punishment for breaking the school rules may be considered harsh by some but they are consistent.
