I do not like the way they sit the kids outside on the ground in the mornings I don't think its right for them to allow the kids to sit on a nasty ground I prefer for the students to stay in the cafeteria and wait for their teachers arrivals, the staff has bad attitudes, especially the cafeteria staff they are rude and disrespectful so far this school is OK, but the staff needs to change their morning routines and their stuck up attitudes.
Kids who misbehave should be punished separately from the ones that are behaving everyone should not be punished for one kid mistake.... My daughter she's in Jean Baptists class , she said she got an F on her assignment because of another student behavior I feel that that is not fair at all.
Norwood Elementary School is one of the best public schools in Miami. Ms. Daddarrion is an exceptional principal who will be greatly missed when she retires this year. However, she leaves behind a staff who will continue to strive for high standards. The school has a winning chess team and a sensational gifted program as well.
I sent my son to Norwood and took him from there shortly therefafter. he wasn't learning anything. The most he was learning was how to draw. I sent him to a different school where the teachers are great and spend time with the children. He was tested for gifted and pass. This would not happen at Norwood. Many of the teachers are somewhat backward and needs more training.
Norwood Elementary is a SENSATIONAL SCHOOL! The teachers are all dedicated, warm and concerned about their students. The principal is wonderful and I wouldn't want my child to be in any other school. It is in A + school in every respect!
