FROM THE School Guide

At Norwood School, we believe that families shouldn’t have to choose between challenging academics and a joyful community. It begins with a simple promise: your child will be known. When students are known, teachers can design learning experiences that stretch without stress. When students are known, they are best able to learn. This is because they feel comfortable asking big questions, taking on advanced challenges, and, most importantly, becoming their true selves.

At Norwood School, education expands beyond academics to tap a full range of intellectual, artistic, athletic, social and emotional potential, allowing our students to develop a deep sense of who they are and who they want to be. We are a warm and welcoming community where the voice of every student is heard, and where caring adults model a love for learning and a responsibility for making positive contributions to our world.

The result? A vibrant community of students who love coming to school each day. Life-long learners who are confident, curious and creative. Ethical and compassionate leaders who have the skills and values necessary to actively engage in high school and in the wider world.
