Norwood Public Schools are very good. There is definitely a sense of community in the halls of our schools. Although we fall behind the wagon of opening our hearts to a community resource dog program (service dogs placed with school resource officers to comfort our children, de-escalate situations, and bridge gaps of communication with law enforcement and community). You can always count on great fundraising from out boosters parents and other great organizations to help our students. Our newly renovated high school brings our students state of the art learning, technology and athletics.

I have attended Norwood Public Schools from Kindergarten through my senior year. I have made good connections with teachers throughout each school and found my teachers to be caring and supportive. The high school has allowed me to explore both my career interests and hobbies. I have been a member of the an honor chorus, honors photography class and captain of the swim team. In order to explore my interest in education I have been allowed to create an independent study program which allows to support my peers through tutoring and lesson planning.
It had great class choices and extra-curricular, I just felt that it lacked diversity and cultural education. I also felt that their was a lack of fundraising for under-privileged kids there was an assumption that everyone could afford to do things that were offered. Tutoring and extra help would have also been great to advertise to students who are struggling in subjects.
