I went to Loy Norrix for 4 years. I will say, if a student did not sign up to take any advanced placement or honors level classes, they will get a relatively easy education that doesn't necessarily prepare you to have the kinds of study habits you must have to succeed in college but the great thing about Loy Norrix is YOU HAVE THAT CHOICE. Take advanced placement and honors courses. The teachers there are AWESOME. They care about your success and wellbeing. They help you prepare for college; they help you sign up for opportunities to get scholarships, all students take their first attempt at the ACT for free, help you get assistance if you don't have the money to pay app fees for college, the school cares about their students, I could go on and on. Loy Norrix was a wonderful school to go to. It taught me acceptance and hard work.
