Norwood elementary school is a small school that meets the needs of the kids it educates. The staff is kind and caring and makes the kids and parents feel welcome. The teachers are willing to work with the parents to help the childern get what they need in their education. Whenever I have addressed concerns with the staff they have been very receptive and thanked me for my input. They are truly dedicated to partnership with the parents.

Excellent school; very focused on what is best for the children rather than just numbers; also very student-security focused; children love it, too; friendly atmosphere and teachers.

Norwood Elementary school is a fine school. I would highly recommend it to anyone asking. The students are taught to the state standards and the teachers are caring, professionals who take the time to learn everything about each and every one of their students. Norwood is a Blue Ribbon School!

About the tests


In 2011-2012 West Virginia used the West Virginia Educational Standards Test 2 (WESTEST 2) to test students in grades 3 through 11 in reading, math and social studies, and grades 3 through 9 in science. The WESTEST 2 is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of West Virginia.
