They’re the best! I went to Norwell public schools all 12 years and they’re amazing. Not only were the teachers kind, caring, and knowledgeable, but also very fun! They made my time there worth while. Not only that, but the community is amazing. Some of my best friends I’ve known through norwell schools since the first grade. It’s no wonder people move here just for the school system.

Great teachers, students, but not much diversity :(. There are many AP courses to choose from and many extracurriculars. It is a small school in general, so there are limitations to the division of sports and teams, but still a very good variety and a very athletic school in general. Food is very good, only 2 dances per year (prom and homecoming, but there is robo for sophomores and freshmen) lots of art classes and provide help with preparing for college by introducing Naviance. Great school
Norwell Public Schools was welcoming as a third grader moving in. In middle school we earned a solid foundation to build upon entering high school. Norwell high school allowed so many opportunities to become involved within the school and community. Nearly every student in my graduating class played a sport or was an active member of a club or organization.
