This school isn't what it's made out to be. Parents (as myself) think that they are sending there kid to am amazing school but then reality sets in! Many staff don't take the extra time out for children. Once I moved from Norwood to Prospect, I realized what the family like school experience is. I discovered how different 2 schools less the. A mile away in same district could really be. Much happier over at Prospect, more teacher, staff, parent, student interaction not only during school bit also at after school. Teachers are very involved in any activities offered after hrs. This shows care, love, and respect for children! I should have made the jump at least 3 yrs ago!

I have 2 children in Norwood School. Both of my children enjoy going to school. They really like their teachers. They love their prinicpal. There was a time when both of my children needed additional help in reading and math. Now they are both excelling in these areas. I have nothing bad to say about Norwood School or its administrators.

This School is just as bad as the inner city schools of Philadelphia and Chester.

I love the teachers at this school, however I wish there was better contact between the principal and parents. They also need to have a better understanding of how to handle emergencies. A pick up and drop off plan wouldn't hurt either. Overall this school needs to have a better way of communicating with parents.
