Norwood Launches New Five-Year Strategic Plan

The 2022-2023 school year is especially exciting because it begins with the opening of the new Marriott Early Childhood Building and the launch of a new strategic plan, Your Journey Begins Here, a bold blueprint consisting of priorities that will guide our school for the next five years.
Norwood embraces a mission to put children first, always. Throughout the collaborative creation of the new strategic plan, children were at the center of every discussion and every decision. We asked ourselves: What are the tools, experiences, and learning environments needed during the all-important elementary and middle school years that will help our students become the best versions of themselves, and, true to our mission, to make positive contributions to our world as confident, compassionate, independent, and creative thinkers that embrace lifelong learning?
The new plan answers this question by mobilizing Norwood's greatest strengths to provide a truly unique and special educational journey for students, all while deepening the School’s enduring value throughout their lives. These hallmark strengths include:
  • a vibrant community of educators with an unparalleled love for and commitment to the education of children;
  • a distinctive and exceptional child-centered program backed by seven decades of experience;
  • a deep and unwavering commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion;
  • a beautiful and spacious campus that allows for the expansion of learning beyond the boundaries of our buildings.
