About Us

Since its founding in 1952 under the direction of Frances Brandis Marsh, Norwood has grown and evolved from a co-educational primary school of forty students connected to an Episcopal parish church into its present configuration as an independent elementary and middle school of over 500 students on a large, suburban campus. Through years of growth and subsequent changes in leadership, the School has held fast to Frances Marsh’s original vision of a “happy place of learning for children … filled with art and music … where each child would feel supported and valued.” In short, Norwood is a school which seeks to achieve a healthy equilibrium between matters of the mind and matters of the heart, and which embraces both the qualities of constancy and renewal.
