Discover The Arts At Norwood

The arts play a significant role in the Norwood PK-8 experience. Beginning in our early grades, creativity is encouraged and nurtured in all classrooms – not just in the art studios and music rooms. Norwood’s integrated curriculum brings performance to social studies and reading classes, art and design to science class, and music to Spanish class. Through artistic expression in all classes, Norwood School students experience the delight, wonder, self-assurance, and outside-the-box thinking that comes with creative accomplishment.
