Our gifted education handbook provides an overview of Norwood's menu of services and criteria for acceptance. Elementary age students may receive enrichment within the regular classroom and/or through small group seminars in reading, writing and math. ATP services are available for students in grades 3-8. Additional secondary opportunities include AP and honors courses, dual credit, and College Credit Plus.
