Norris offers a wide variety of academic programs, with many AP and college credit course offereings. We have a wonderful auditorium and a strong choral and performing arts tradition. The school has amazing facilities, as it was just recently completely remodeled after it was struck by a tornado. I can think of no school with better parent involvement.
