Welcome to the Norton City Schools website. I hope you will
visit this site often to stay abreast of current events in our
We continue to excel, both in the classroom as well as in the
extracurricular venue. Based upon data from this past school
year, Norton City Schools is one of only eighteen school
divisions that met all Annual Measurable Objectives (AMO’s)
and one of only thirty-six where all schools are fully
accredited by the Virginia Department of Education. J.I.
Burton was also recognized with a bronze level ranking by
U.S. News and World Report, acknowledging Burton as one of
the top performing high schools in Virginia. These most
noteworthy accomplishments are due to the wonderful faculty,
administration, and student body that reside in our school
Our students continue to earn success in various
extracurricular activities. Last year, for the third time in
four years, we had a basketball team make it to the state
final four in Richmond. The J.I. Burton boy’s team hit a
thrilling last second shot to win their quarterfinal game and
propel them to the semi-finals where they lost to the eventual
state champion. Our baseball team also made it to the state
quarterfinals and Colby D. capped off a magnificent wrestling
career by winning his fourth straight individual state
wrestling title. The J.I. Burton band continued to shine in
local band competitions and our newly formed Students with a
Gift (SWAG) show choir presented two outstanding winter and
spring performances, in turn demonstrating the artistic
talents of our students.
We take pride in the advantages of being a small school
division, which include our excellent pupil-teacher ratios and
a family-like atmosphere that in turn promotes a positive
learning environment. Our primary goal is to provide students
with unique and challenging academic programs that lead to the
development of the skills necessary to be successful in a
rapidly changing and more global society.
As always, please feel free to contact me if you would like to
discuss your thoughts and suggestions on ways that we can
become an even stronger school division.
