ABOUT NORWOOD

Norwood Elementary is located in Dundalk, with an enrollment of over 600 students. We are a Title 1 STEM school with 40.0% mobility and 69.0% FARMS. Students receive special education services in a variety of settings in the school. We are a model co-teaching school. All teachers at Norwood are highly qualified.

 Norwood Elementary is a STEM school that provides relevant and challenging learning for all of our students.  We set suitable learning goals based on a child's individual needs.  We strive to overcome potential barriers to learning and assessment for all pupils with a diverse group of education and physical requirements.

Norwood offers a number of extracurricular programs: Music and Movement, Chorus, Art Club, Library and Computer helpers, and Cybersafety. Rapid Readers, Math Movers, First in Math, FASST Math and afterschool reading/math programs are provided for students in need. The 24 Math Challenge, Challenge Scenarios (project based learning), and Green School environmental activities are also avenues to enrichment.

Norwood fosters parent involvement through Back to School Night, Family Fun Nights, Fall Fest, Spirit Days and Nights, Special Area Night, Fun with Dads, Parent Information Center, May Day/Sports Day, Concerts, Science Fair, and Read With Me.

BCPS Stakeholder Survey 2014-2015
​Now-February 28th

The BCPS Stakeholder Satisfaction Survey is now available online at https://bcps.co1.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_0oj10KVhrdjagXX through February 28. The confidential survey takes only about five minutes to complete on your phone, tablet, or computer. Every voice counts.
There are different but related questions for community members, parents, students in Grades 4 through 12, and staff. Those who serve multiple roles or have children in more than one school are encouraged to take the survey more than once to reflect those experiences.
We’re aiming to double last year's historic participation of 40,000 responses to a new record of 80,000 responses for more feedback on what the school system is doing well and areas for improvement.
