Fortunately the best of the best teachers work at B.F. Norton. My children have attended other Cumberland schools and hands down the most dedicated staff can be found at B.F. The principal seems to genuinely care about the school, the students and the teachers. I feel the test scores and hence lower "Great Schools Ranking" is largely due to the much higher percentage of English as a Second Language students. Which brings to mind another positive of B.F. which is the diversity of the student body. This prepares students to respect other cultures, religions etc. Great school, I would fight to keep my kids in B.F. if they tried to redistrict and I think that says it all.

Day in and day out the faculty and staff do so much with so little, it would be nice to win the money and get some much need technology and other resources into our school!

Collegiality among staff is professional, loving and ongoing. Most staff begin their careers in this building and retire from BFN. We work the most at-risk students in our community. Having the most at-risk population in our district, and the pressure of high stakes testing no one wants to leave BF and teach at any other building. Rather, teachers from other schools want to come to us!

It has been my experience that the entire staff at B.F. Norton School is extremely dedicated and supportive to all of its students. What they contribute to each student's education at this school, goes well beyond the average school day. It is not an uncommom sight to see staff working well beyond school hours. This school is also very supportive of literacy. Their Family reading Club is awesome! It is a family oriented school that offers many family events, mostly at no cost. This school offers a student body of great diversity, which is proven to produce more well rounded children.If the parental involvement was increased here, the possibilities would be endless. We are very fortunate to our child attend such a great school and we are looking forward to another great year!
