Overall there is no communication. Anything could happen at this school and you would never know. The teachers don't communicate with the parents. The office staff is no better. The receptionist is rude and unprofessional. I understand that they deal with a lot of lousy parents but that is no excuse to treat all parents with disrespect. The worst thing is that they never ask for picture ID when a child is being picked up at the office. Anyone could go in and request to take a child withouth proper verification. Very dissapointed in this school.

My school is Norwood Street Elementary it is one of the most parent involved schools. I moved and transfered my kids out and realized what a bad choice I made and actually moved back so my children could go back to Norwood. The Prinicipal Mr Onodera is very involved and all the children and parents love him.

As a former student, I had no hesitation in enrolling my daughter. I am very familiar with the staff at all levels and am very pleased with their commitment and support of all students. My daughter has had great teachers since Pre-K to her current 5th grade level: Very enthusiastic; very supportive of alls students; and set high standards for achievement. She has been given a solid foundation from which to grow and I feel she will be able to meet all academic challenges and strive above and beyond! Thank you Norwood Staff

Norwood is a great school with a mostly young and enthusiastic teaching staff. It's an arts prototype school where all artforms are encouraged.

My two children attend this school. This school has come along to better times. The new building gives the kids sense of pride for the new and improved school. I have been very lucky that my two children have had great teachers. Of course I am a parent that loves to be involved with what ever problem comes about with them. My only concern is that the attendance office does not verify parents ID when taking your child out of school (please work on this). Over all this school is great.

I had a son there that was in the special day class at Norwood. It started off rocky for they had him in the wrong classroom, so we had to have a early IEP meeting which was the best I have attended since he left the schools in Burbank. Everyone there were great, on time and took their time with us made us as parents feel comfortable and like they really cared. The teacher there Mrs. Sevela and her aid Mrs. Jone oh they are the best there thus far. And the principal once you get to know her she is a wonderful person as well along with the rest of the staff. I highly recommend this school to all parents, it nice, clean, and very safe for all children.
