Norwood Avenue School5

I'm a parent of two children attending Norwood Ave. and could not ask for a better elementary experience. My daughter will be entering the Middle School in Sept. and feels Norwood is her home. Both my kids love this school!
I have had two children finish at this wonderful little school and I .have one still attending. My husband and I are both very well educated and I attended private school alas I had some reservations when we began here in 1999. Overall a wonderful school the district does need a stronger Kindergarten program as most of us pay for private full day K.
My son goes to Norwood Ave. Elem. in Northport, NY. While he has been quite content there, there are some things I wish they did differently but overall I am happy with it. The classes move quickly to follow the state guidelines so if your child is shy to speak up that they dont understand, they may fall behind a bit. My biggest challangle is in the community and not the school itself. It is a very wealthy area and the children in this school inparticular are from well off families and it shows. My son has come home in tears because kids have asked him if he is poor because he lives in a small house and does not wear Abercrombe! The afternoon program for kids who need care after hours is very good. They do not offer a morning program for kids whose parents need it. Overall B+.
