    it is a great school but no one respects themselves. The advanced classes would be considered basic classes for any other school. The teachers are nice though and they try to always be nice to you. This school could improve TCAP scores and work on doing better in certain terms/subjects.

    I am a student and I am joining here but if is close to the elementray school then this place is one big family! I have been going and switching schools since I was little and whenever I come here its like knowing everyone. It feels like youve known them your whole life!

    As a faculty member of NWMS I am so proud to call the school my home. We may be the smallest school in the county but I believe NWMS is a gold-mine. The teachers at NWMS are there because we love being educators and the students are our number one priority! We dedicate hundreds of hours to our teaching and we then dedicate even more to providing programs for our students. Our athletic programs are improving every year and we have more to offer our students than ever before. I am proud to be a Norwood Jaguar and NWMS is the only place I want to be!
