Bad Teacher[edit]

There is a clip on iFilm right now about, entitled "bad teacher" where he's (I've seen him but forget his name) mocking a student. I'm not sure that I'd call it relevant for the article, though. See the Advocate article.

Buildings[edit]

I suspect Norwalk High School occupied a building on West Avenue from its founding in 1902 until the mide 1930s when the building (pictured) at 125 East Avenue was ready for classes (could someone find a reference for this?). As already noted in this article classes at the current building were held starting in 1971. Someone from the Norwalk Museum (in South Norwalk) told me that that building was used as the Town Hall until the 1980s. In other words the use of 125 East Avenue as the City Hall dates from the mid 1980s. Hence there were three separate buildings used by Norwalk High School (here too a published reference would be helpful). It might also be worthwhile to discuss what educational facilities existed prior to 1902. 67.86.73.252 (talk) 11:52, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

The original building on east ave was replaced by the current building in 1971 when for the firt time all four grades, 9th through 12th were consolidated. The orginal building was used as athletic lockerooms (football and baseball fields remained in use by the school until the issues with Andrew's field sinking could be remedied)and School District offices until the building was renoveted in the 1980's for its current use as City Hall.

The Norwalk High School class of 1975 was the first class to attend all four years of high school in the current building. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.155.87.132 (talk) 22:00, 29 March 2010 (UTC)
