Norman Thomas High School Reviews
I have NO idea how this school got five stars, but someone's lying here B-I-G time. I seriously believe they're pushing through students who can't (or won't) do the work, and because the school is closing next year they very likely don't even care.
How would you like to be a parent desperately trying to get info about your child's grades, but have NO one to turn to for the answers you seek? Your child comes home with NO paper work, tests, etc. and when you go the school on parent/teachers day-night, you don't even get a report card? This is beyond pitiful and it's time for this to stop and if possible be fixed in some way.
I don't understand what happened but I will always be grateful to the teachers and staff at Norman Thomas H.S. I graduated HS with a full scholarship to Syracuse University in Electrical Engineering. I've obtained a Bachelor Degree in EE and am now planning to attend Graduate School next fall. I personally to want to thank the Norman Thomas Staff past and present... Bravo!
Norman Thomas is basically a great school. Great teachers as well.
The escalators are a great asset to the school.Although the teachers dont exactly fascinate me Ms.tomilson is a great teacher. I actually learned alot in that class. Im not a big fan of the lunch the school provides but i do eat the snacks. Some of the teachers don't explain the material in a way that we understand. They are not asking us questions. The security guards are not professional and need more training in that field. They don't go about situations the right way. We also don't go on enough trips in our classes and we also don't have enough side activities.
