    Welcome to the employment website of the Norwell Public Schools! 

    We appreciate your interest in Norwell Public Schools!  The information below has been prepared to give you an overview of Norwell and its schools. Learn how Norwell Public Schools’ core values of Children First, Centrality of the Classroom, Customer Focus, and Continuous Improvement are guiding us in the creation of 21st Century Schools for Our 21st Century Students.

    Ideally situated 25 miles southeast of downtown Boston, Norwell is a semi-rural, suburban community of approximately 11,000 residents. The farms and factories of a century ago have given way to private country homes, modern schools, shopping centers, health, recreation and cultural facilities, a wildlife reservation, a natural science center, and a thriving industrial zone. With the scenic North River forming the town's southern boundary, Norwell is an ideal recreational site for boating, fishing, and swimming. Ocean beaches and picturesque New England harbors are only a few miles away.

    Norwell is proud and supportive of its school system, which reflects the intellectual strength and character of the community. The two pre-K-5 elementary schools, the grade 6-8 middle school, and high school are all committed to academic excellence in a caring environment for Norwell's 2,153 students. In May of 2012, a $2.3 million operational override allowed Norwell Public Schools to improve student to teacher ratios, begin a comprehensive curriculum adoption cycle and a technology cycle for overall infrastructure needs and a 1:1 iPad initiative for students in grades 3-12. The Clipper Community Complex, featuring a stadium turf field and all purpose athletic turf field, was completed in the summer of 2014 thanks to the support of many Norwell committees, community members, and donors. Each school has an active school council and parents are very involved with the education of their children. Ninety-four (94%) of Norwell High School graduates continue their education at two and four year colleges.
