Octorara Area Junior/Senior High School
- Octorara Area School District, PA
Senior: Attending Octorara Area High school has been a joy. There has always been a positive atmosphere through out the school, and each teacher is only looking out for the students best intrests. This is a special place that truly cares. I understand that this particular High school is not the biggest around, and so you can expect that the sports program has difficulty competing. This is something that could have changes made to. I'm some cases, not many students are willing to try out for a sport. But such students need to understand, practice makes perfect, and the wonderful coaches of Octorara are looking for one thing. Effort. I feel that if the High school advertises this message more frequently, then more students won't be afraid to try out. Therefore we gain more numbers for the program, and have more success in competing with schools around us. Overall, Octorara looks out for the well being of the students, and persists on creating a positive environment that welcomes everyone.

Parent: I am the mother of a pre-primary student who is in his second year at NFA. Our son is in a small class with an exceptional teacher. The classroom is warm and loving. The physical space is full of light and learning tools. NFA educates the whole child: with his teacher's support and guidance, my son has excelled both socially and academically. My son has forged strong relationships with faculty members and school friends. Since beginning at Norwood, he has grown so much in how he expresses his feelings as well as how he navigates friendships and interpersonal conflicts. Simultaneously, he has found his footing academically - impressing me daily with what he has learned and how enthusiastic he is to have learned it. The teacher uses technology to stay in touch with parents and keep us apprised of what is going on in the classroom each day: she organizes learning centers that deliver instruction in such a creative and fun way! I know he will be extremely well prepared for kindergarten.
