St. Norbert School, located in Paoli, Pennsylvania, is a Catholic, co-educational school for children in prekindergarten through 8th grade. The cornerstone of St. Norbert School is academic excellence with a commitment to service rooted in the Catholic faith. The faculty is dedicated to educating the whole child, ever aware of individual needs and learning styles. A dynamic and nurturing learning environment allows the students to become high-level critical thinkers and problem solvers as they continue to develop both emotionally and morally. Academic excellence is achieved through a comprehensive curriculum based on the standards of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia and Common Core State Standards. Technology at St. Norbert School is a critical tool for teachers as they differentiate their instruction to address multiple learning styles. A 1:1 school-wide iPAD learning program in which each student has a school-issued iPAD is enhanced by Smartboards and Apple TVs in every classroom. A newly renovated state-of-the-art science laboratory allows the students to go beyond the limits of a typical classroom. Service to the world at large is highlighted by the students participation in several outreach efforts. This dedication to service strengthens the relationships between student, family, and community. With a tradition of faith, academic excellence, and service, St. Norbert School provides an environment where students flourish academically, emotionally, physically, and socially. The commitment of the faculty, parents, and clergy to maintain the high academic standards of an exemplary Catholic education is the key to St. Norbert Schools success.
