My son is a student at Norwood. We have been very happy with his teachers thus far. So far my son has had Mrs. Ross for Pre-K, Mrs. Vourvoulas for Kindergarten, and Ms. Hoffman for first grade. All three are exceptional teachers and very kind women that carry themselves with great integrity.

I have two children in this school, one in the 2nd and one in the 3rd. This is our first year and we came from a catholic school - WE LOVE IT. The teachers and staff have been great to my children. They are so much more advanced here than they are in catholic school, I was so surprised. The only thing missing is the parents in this school could put a little bit more effort into the way they parent their children. But, that is the difference between public and private schooling.

My son has gone to Norwood the last 5 years. It is such a wonderful school. The teachers are very involved with each student and you gain many friendships thru them. It is sad to say that because Norwood is wonderful, my son is going to a private middle school because the middle schools do not compare to with what he is used to. My daughter who will begin pre-k this year at Norwood is very excited because she already knows most of the teachers as well as several students from only going to school activities. Norwood really is a shining star.

My daughter has been going to norwood elementry school since pre-k. She has learned a lot in this school and does very well in all of her subjects, plus the teachers there are outstanding. The principal Ms.Goldys is a very hard working concerned and understanding principal. She gets involved in all of the childrens need and is concerned about wheather or not they are having problems in a subject. All of the teachers are very good they get involved with there students wheather they are having a problem or just need a helping hand with something. The parents are wonderful no matter what day you go there you will see a lot of parents help, voluntering or just lending a helpful hand. From my understanding norwood has one of the most successful programs in this area. You will not be sorry to send your children to this school. Thank you.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Maryland used the Maryland School Assessment (MSA) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The MSA is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Maryland. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
