For me Norwood High School as provided a lot of opportunity. Not for just me, but for my family. I loved playing sports for my high school. It is a very good school where the staff members and administration tries their best to help their students. One of these is me and I am very grateful for going to Norwood High School.

Well, we have diversity in ethnicities and sexual orientation. When it comes to the student involvement, it usually is only the same few students participating in activities. Acceptance is mediocre at best. You're either hit, miss, or anon. Hits are people everyone loves, misses are ones that the hits dislike, and anons are the ones who blend into the background neutrally.
The teachers are really personal and strive to make everyone feel confident in themselves as growing adults and as students. It's in a small city that is family oriented.
