I have a special needs child going to Norwood and she has been going there since first grade, so I think I know alot about the school and staff. from the very begining the teacher noticed a difference with our child and so did we. our daughter has ADHD, MOOD DISORDER, ANXIETY, and she is 55 pounds at almost 12 years of age.The teachers helped with accomendations for her medical conditions when ever one would come up and they would. Due to weight she had to be offered food every 2 hours and had to be able to keep snacks and drinks available at the school at all times. We then found out she had asthma and with proper forms filled out she was able to keep medication at school to be adminstered when needed. I was able to get letters and conferences when ever I wanted them and for as many staff memebers as I wanted in the meetings. Through email I was able to get reply's within 24 hours from any staff member from the adminstration level to the secretary level.

We have two children in attendance at Norwood. I really like the small schools and notice the difference from other local school districts in that they have a real interest in my child success. The smaller school is nice especially for the younger one's. The school is very active in many areas and I don't feel that because we are outside of Columbus that the children suffer from any lack of culturing which is important. The schools have a nice website that we can log onto anytime to view our children's performance and current subjects of study. It is a nice way to stay involved. Over all rating would be a 8.5 out of 10. It would be nice to have a child to teacher ratio of 5/1 but this is a public school. Would like to see more enthusiasm in some of the areas like the reading groups.
