Welcome to our Virtual Visit webpage. Given current social distancing guidelines, visiting Norwood's beautiful campus in person is challenging, so we have tried to capture the spirit and heart of Norwood for prospective families on this page. In addition to viewing the videos and slideshows, we encourage you to peruse our full website where you will find curriculum and program information in addition to more detailed admission information.
We are accepting applications for limited space in select grades for the 2020-2021 school year. We are open virtually and hope to hear from you.

WELCOME FROM ADMISSION AND HEAD OF SCHOOL
Norwood School Continuity of Learning Looking Ahead to 2020-2021
Our number one goal is to provide In-School Learning, safely, for all students PreK through 8th Grade every day.
At any time, if we are not permitted to be on campus, we will move to our Distance Learning program. The daily schedules for In-School Learning and Distance Learning, while not exactly the same, will be complimentary, so the transition between them should be seamless.
Whether we are on campus or not, we will continue to provide opportunities for social-emotional learning, academic enrichment and support, and community-building. As always, Norwood students will Be Known.
"Norwood is not a quiet school. When you walk the halls, the hum of learning is tangible. As you explore this page, imagine excited voices, exclamations of wonder, and lot and lots of laughter."

Connect with a Norwood Parent
Current Norwood parents are a wonderful resource for prospective families. To facilitate conversation, Norwood has partnered with PeerPal. PeerPal is a platform that allows prospective parents and current Norwood parent to have private conversations to ask questions and to learn about Norwood's program and community. We encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity!
