Norwood High School Selected as one of the Top 100 in Ohio!
Congratulations to Norwood High School for being named one of the Top 100 High Schools in Ohio by U.S. News & World Report!  Currently there are 820 high schools in the State of Ohio, and being selected to the Top 100 is an honor.  This amazing accomplishment is a great recognition of the hard work that our fantastic students, staff and administration of Norwood High School have been striving for over the years.  
Several months ago the Norwood City School District was fortunate enough to be selected by the Ohio Board of Regents as one of four school districts in the state of Ohio to be included in their GEAR UP Grant application. The GEAR UP Grant is a federally funded grant program directed by the United States Department of Education. Last week the Ohio Board of Regents was notified by USDOE that they had been selected as one of the grant recipients. With the awarding of this grant, our district will receive significant financial resources in the areas of student academic mentoring, post-secondary preparation and college tuition scholarships for our students. The focus of this federal grant is to prepare and provide post-secondary opportunities for first generation college students and/or economically disadvantaged students.
