Norris Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

I feel my kids enjoy school because of the Principal, staff, and other students at Norris. They look forward to going in the morning, and have wonderful stories to share after school. Our experience has been incredible and we wouldn’t have wanted our kids anywhere else.

Dropoff is a mess with most parents waiting in line, but many vehicles flying past to squeeze in at the front door. Buses will do the same, and never anyone outside to control the traffic. Only a matter of time before a child gets hit by a car. The physical condition of the building is run down, you will see siding missing paint on the outside. Very limited playground equipment. The PTO has been raising money for 'playground equipment' for years, has been no change since my children started there years ago. If you are there during the day you will see stressed out teachers yelling at kids. Unsure if the school is lacking resources or if the resources are being poorly managed.

Norris Elementary has been the best school for my granddaughter. It's a close knit school and they seem very family oriented. Her 3rd grade teacher took her to an all new level in her Math. She truly cared about all her students and it showed. Mrs. Ballard, the principal is very much on top of everything. The Music and P.E.department are top knotch!!! Excellent school!! Thank you Norris.

"Our children have thrived in the Montessori program at Norris, both academically and in their development as individuals. They have had experiences as leaders and mentors, they have learned to solve problems in the classroom through ""community meetings"", and they have grown in responsibility by managing their time to finish their ""work plans"" each week. Some children in traditional schools in the area come home with an hour of homework (in first grade! after over 7 hours in school!). I appreciate that Montessori does not overburden my young children with busywork at home. I also appreciate the lack of bribery with trinkets for good behavior (we've had treasure boxes in other schools) and rather a focus on cooperation and privileges, owning one's behavior, and the reinforcement of positive choices. This school also still has two recess periods daily and physical education three times a week (one is a music and movement class). The music and p.e. teachers are both creative, fun, and actually teach important skills. Overall we feel Norris is a gem that still holds onto a lot of important things other schools have lost in the squeeze for academic performance."

Norris Elementary has a lot going on and the new principal seems to be on top of things. After more than ten years of driving to and from that school the drop off and pick up of children is far more efficient than before. This school is Montessori and traditional. It also provides top notch preschool for children who do not speak English as a primary language. All schools in the Millard Community study the same curriculum and take the same standardized tests. I am not sure how they rank with the rest of the schools in the area or country but I would guess they are higher on the list for quality education.
