INDIVIDUAL PARENT TOUR & CONVERSATION (IN-PERSON)

An individual Parent Tour & Conversation provides families with the opportunity to see Norwood students and teachers in action, allow the Admission Team an opportunity to get to know your family better, and help to bring your child's application to life. A typical Parent Tour & Conversation lasts about 75 minutes and is for adults only.

Schedule your Parent Conversation and Tour once you have submitted your application via Ravenna Hub. Please email the admission office (admission@norwoodschool.org) to request an online parent conversation and tour.
