Mark your calendar for Saturday, November 9, 1:00-3:00 p.m., and plan to attend our open house, Experience Norwood, to meet students, parents, teachers, division directors, and our head of school. Children welcome! No RSVP required but pre-registration preferred.
Schools should send a current report card/progress report/transcript and any standardized test scores (if applicable) by February 1 (sibling documents by December 6). If your school does not have a transcript or progress report, school personel should indicate such on the Transcript Release Form and return only that to Norwood. The Transcript Release Form is available to print through your Ravenna account.
Norwood is test optional for grades PK-3. 4th grade applicants must submit either the elementary SSAT or WISC. 5th-8th grade applicants must submit either an ISEE or an SSAT. Testing results are due by February 1 (sibling testing due December 6).
