the teachers care and listen to their students. I am not to crazy about the assistant principal but every other interaction that I have had has been on a positive note.

Amount of homework: Not enough

I would provide them with a little more homework. especially in Social studies and science. I think that the homework level is a little low.

By acknowledging students success and incorporating school loop within their classroom, this has helped students track their own progress. I have noticed that it has encouraged my daughter to do well in school because she is able to see her progress reports on a weekly basis.

Honors and recognizes students by providing kids with awards and different perks on campus. My daughters self esteem has increased tremendously since she started attending this school

Develops empathy: Strongly agree

My daughter has been pushed by her teachers and motivated by her principal. They take personal responsibility over their students. Unless the kid is a complete jerk. Which it's most likely that the parents are too.

Develops honesty: Strongly agree

Students are treated based on their dedication and loyalty to their own academics. If a student and its parents do not care, why should the teacher? Teachers are required to teach NOT babysit.

This is a great school. The teachers really care about their students both personally and academically. They offer many clubs and afterschool activities. It's just up to your kid to find these resources. By the time they are in JR High they should be speaking up for themselves, enough mommy daddy dependency.

Norwood is a very nice and friendly school. Of course, not all of the students are extremely nice because what school has students that are all nice. If you get good classes here, then your classmates are sure to be nice.

I worked at the school during the 2008-2009 school year. Strong leadership in the administration that provides a supportive environment for teachers and never loses focus that it's all about helping the students. I worked with the math dept and took ideas from Norwood with me to another school and am getting high praise at my new school for doing so. Norwood was a great stop in my career and is a place that cares about kids.
