Norwalk High School is a secondary school located in Norwalk, Connecticut, USA. It is the oldest high school in Norwalk, created in 1902. The current building for the school was built in 1971.

The school mascot is a bear and the school colors are green and white. Its crosstown rival is Brien McMahon High School and the two schools compete annually in football on Thanksgiving day. The $4 million Shea-Magrath Sports Complex, which includes the astroturf Testa Field sits just to the south of the school. It replaced the aging Andrews Field, located 1/4 mile west of the school. The school is a member of the FCIAC athletic conference. The school also contains a theater, gymnasium, swimming pool, library, and cafeteria.

The school is divided into 5 lettered houses (A, B, D, E, and S) with a housemaster in charge of students in his/her house. Students are assigned lockers, homerooms, and guidance counselors within their house.

The NHS Bears girls basketball team won the FCIAC championship in 1999, and then lost in the Class LL state championship in 1999. They then won another FCIAC championship in 2000, and won the Class LL state championship in 2000.
