Community of Creators

When you walk through the halls of Norwood, you’ll feel it: a hum of creativity and engagement infused in everything we do. This stems from our deep belief that creativity is the language of childhood.
We believe that imagination is at the core of every great idea—a perspective that provides Norwood students with a unique advantage as problem-solvers. As innovators, we embrace exploration and inquiry as tools that ensure continued success inside and outside the classroom.
Being welcomed into a community of creators is exciting because you are surrounded by students who are motivated to push, analyze, and excel. At Norwood, collaboration and creativity coexist. For us, “I want to be my best” also means “I’m committed to helping everyone achieve their best.”
We are a community—of collaborators, builders, performers, artists, and explorers—where wonder, resourcefulness, reflection, and joy are valued, and creativity is an essential component of every discipline.
