I was a very skeptical parent at first. Since I've lived in norristown/west norriton the past 5 years, I've heard a lot of negative things about the school district. Suffice to say I was more than a little hesitant to send my son there for kg. I MUST SAY, I WAS SHOCKED AT HOW WELL MY SON'S DID. Marshall St. was especially good. His 1st teacher Mrs Strassburg was the best teacher I have ever met. I look forward to my son starting 1st grade this fall at Marshall St. Keep up the good work, GO NORRISTOWN
