School Mission Statement
Norwood Creek cultivates an innovative community of learners who engage creatively with passion and purpose to achieve academic and person success.
The Norwood Creek School community is committed to academic excellence. We believe that all children can learn in a supportive environment and that the teacher’s role is to facilitate learning. We believe that learning should be joyful and that questions are as important as answers. We believe in preparing students to learn in the ever-changing 21st century. We believe in the necessity of involving students in decision-making and shared responsibility for making the classroom a good place to be and to learn. We believe that the school must be a safe haven where the dignity of every person is respected. We believe that students need to learn to give to others and to their community, and that parents and the larger community must be involved in educating our children. These beliefs form from the basis of the school’s goals, of which we have three:
To engage all students in powerful, meaningful 21st century learning experiences and a rich thinking curriculum.
To develop every child’s social, ethical, emotional, physical, and intellectual potential.
To involve parents in their children’s education.
