Welcome to Norwood Avenue Elementary School!

"Great Happens Here!"

Norwood Avenue Elementary School is a primary school consisting of kindergarten through second grade. It is one of four elementary schools in the Comsewogue School District, which is also home to our pre-kindergarten program supported by Eastern Suffolk BOCES. Our student population is comprised of approximately 350 students, eager to learn and grow. We are dedicated to providing a safe and nurturing environment, while also developing innovative learning methods to engage all children in the curriculum.

Our goal is to foster student growth and achievement of the whole child: academic, social, and emotional. The faculty and staff are highly skilled professionals, dedicated to student success at Norwood Avenue. Our teachers work collaboratively to ensure the needs of every individual child are met throughout the course of the academic year. We work closely with parents and the community to truly create and maintain a Norwood Avenue family. The staff is a professional community that strives to continually modify instruction and develop methods to engage all children in the learning process, while also encouraging social growth.

Norwood Avenue is extremely fortunate to have an NSA (Norwood Student Association) that supports our school and collaborates with teachers and families to provide wonderful activities for our children. The NSA hosts various events, such as assemblies, book fairs, family nights, and boutiques, just to name a few. We are delighted to recognize our NSA President Stephanie Licata and her executive board who have helped to make Norwood Avenue an exciting place. All families are invited to participate and attend the NSA sponsored programs throughout the year.

I am honored to serve the students, families and teachers at Norwood Avenue Elementary School, and anticipate an exciting year. Thank you for visiting our website. We look forward to working with you throughout the school year.

Annemarie V. Sciove, Principal
