I have been very happy at this school. There is a nice small neighborhood school feeling to this school. When you walk down the halls everyone seems happy and the teachers seem to know all the kids. The education seems to be excellent too, especially the science program. They are getting a new principle this year though, so well have to see if it stays ths good.
Norton is an excellent school. The teachers are very good and caring. The school day is planned out with thoughtfulness and the extra curricular teachers are great too. There is lots of communication with parents and they keep us updated. They have fun activities for the kids, great field trips and lots of special events. We are very picky about our kids education and have been pleasantly surprised by the quality there.
I love Norton Elementary. I both my kids go to school there. I was also a teacher at Norton for 2 years and was sad to leave when I took on a new position. All of the teachers have high expectations for all of thier students. I taught a special needs class and my students were always included in all parts of school life as well as acadmics. My personal children have excelled both academically and social at Norton. Norton has a diverese mix of students and everyone here gets along. A quality that is required not only at school but in the real world. I there are so many things that I can say about this school that there wouldn't be enough words to express my thoughts. After taking on another position, I still drive my kids over 30 minutes across town just so they can attend Norton Elementary, even when there is a school only 2 miles from my home. I love this place!
As a total Kagan school, we integrate effective strategies/structures for engaging all students in the learning process simultaneously. Children are enjoying it, and positive behaviors and attitudes are a result!
