Hey Class of 2012, have you gotten any acceptance...
College is the most freeing thing you can do
Back in Norristown, I (and many other students) had to carry the infamous Norristown reputation on our shoulders and it was heavy. People would stereotype me because of the school I went to. I’m sure most of you have felt this. But at college no one knows about your high school (out here in Chicago, no one could even place Norristown on a map) and that reputation is lifted off your...

I don’t usually like sequels but this one will be better than the first. After the success of the Norristownian Art and Music Extravaganza, Makeba Robinson, Yesenia Bello, and Anthony Bui are putting on another showcase of Norristown’s young talent. Walla Fest will be held in the Centre Theater on July 10th. Don’t miss it!
brokennsunsets asked: Morgan Purcel ! She's a freshman and my brother talks about how smart she is and she did really well in DECA for a first year. She made it to nationals! [ I'm pretty sure she made it to nationals, that or states, but either way it's good for a first year DECA member, especially as a freshman. ]

An update on some of our students

Makeba Robinson will be attending Cooper Union, a college that will pay for your tuition if you are able to get in. Only the most hard working and most talented students are selected. Ali Bateman will be attending Purdue University, a school that has...

Congratulations to the students featured in this...
Viridiana Rojas, Latifah Williams, Linette Armas, Matt Jennis, Kelly Williams, and Bianca Brown have been entered into a drawing and one lucky student will win $100! I am a big fan of the Student Spotlight. It’s nice to see that the school cares about all the hard work students put in and the many things they accomplish. I hope this program will continue for years to come.

Another angel-voiced singer from Norristown. Her voice is BEAUTIFUL! Her acting is GORGEOUS! She is so incredibly creative and is a big part of the NAHS art scene. She’s worked hard to shape her talents. She cares about being better and she’s always pushing herself to work hard. I can’t wait to see where her future will take her. I’m sure every major art school will be...
Esta Chica! She is incredibly driven and incredibly smart. She works so hard to improve our school and she truly cares. Every time I see her, she’s working on a new project. You know she just took a job to translate video for UPENN? That’s pretty amazing. Selenia plans to go to West Chester in the fall. Felicidades!

Norristown’s own little soulful songstress! It’s incredible how much voice comes out of her little body. When she opens her mouth, it’s absolutely mind blowing. AND she can play the ukelele! Remember when she sang at the Mr. Norristown 2011 competition? AMAZING! We have so much pure talent at our school. Keep doing that Mariah Carey, girl.

Unfortunately, doesn’t have any photos on the internet. You’ll just have to call her name out in the hallways until you find her. Anyway, Grace is a SUPERSTAR! Reading Olympics. Key Club. Star Pupil. UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYLVANIA CLASS OF 2015. Yes you read that correctly. Miss Waweru will be attending the Ivy League University of Penn. This just proves that hard work does pay off....
If you haven’t guessed already, ^this is a pretty important moment for Mr. Tyler Smith. He’s signing on to attend Georgetown in the fall. But how did he get there? Hmmm maybe because he’s the fastest kid in all of Pennsylvania? Maybe because he’s maintained decent grades? Well it’s both. And not only is he going to Georgetown but he’s also going for FREE!...
DJ. Deca Goon. Great Student. Great Singer. This kid is talented. Especially with music. I heard he tore the roof off at Junior Prom. It’s good that the juniors chose someone within our school to DJ their Prom. Let’s use what talent we have. Also he went to Orlando for DECA Nationals. That in itself is an accomplishment and it should be applauded. And if you were at Mr. Norristown,...
