    I am thrilled with the progress my son is making since moving to the Norwood district. We came from an award winning district and this district offers everything we had before and then some I believe the Norwood district is a hidden gem in the Cincinnati area and there is no doubt why young professionals are flocking to the area. Great values is beautiful older quality homes and great schools we are very happy with our choice to move here.

    Norwood is really working hard to bring its schools up to the level expected from a blue collar working class factory neighborhood to a school that expects its students to go to college and excel.
