    Norwood Elementary School is one of the best public schools in Miami. Ms. Daddarrion is an exceptional principal who will be greatly missed when she retires this year. However she leaves behind a staff who will continue to strive for high standards. The school has a winning chess team and a sensational gifted program as well.

    I sent my son to Norwood and took him from there shortly therefafter. he wasn't learning anything. The most he was learning was how to draw. I sent him to a different school where the teachers are great and spend time with the children. He was tested for gifted and pass. This would not happen at Norwood. Many of the teachers are somewhat backward and needs more training.

    Norwood Elementary is a SENSATIONAL SCHOOL! The teachers are all dedicated warm and concerned about their students. The principal is wonderful and I wouldn't want my child to be in any other school. It is in A + school in every respect!

    Norwood Elementary is the greatest choice for a childs career all three of my children are on the Honor Roll and my 2 oldest made the Principals Honor Roll. The staff always commend us on how well we groom our children but I tell you that we could not have done it without the help guidance support and love of our Norwood Elementary family (Miami Florida).

    Norwood is a fabulous school. They are a Triple A+ school and in the top four in the county for performance on the FCAT Writes Test. The teachers are HQT.

    Norwood is a great school where they focus on reading and the principal is very active and knows just about every student. The teacher actually teach and listen to the kids. I am very pleased with my daughter's progress in this school.

    My daughter went to this school for K through 5th grade. I regret keeping her in this school for so long. The administrative staff is never available.

    I went to this school three years ago and I just checked out how they were doing and I must say I am thrilled. I mean they maintained the grade of this school for so long and also let us kids have fun. They organized Pep rallys dances conferences Science Fairs Christmas Plays and Hallaween Partys while still haveing a good time learning. This is the best elementary school I ever went too!
