Demographics

Norwood Middle School is located in the Norwood community, in Oliver Springs, Tennessee, along the extreme western edge of Anderson County. The school was built in 1968 on property adjoining Norwood Elementary, which had been built in 1954. Renovation of the building took place in 1996 and 1997.

Design of School

In the early 1990's, the ideals of a junior high gave way to the middle school concept; the school was originally named Norwood Junior High, but the name later changed to Norwood Middle. The new design did away with the open classrooms and created classrooms that returned to a more traditional environment for teaching. The "pod" design was chosen to facilitate the ideals of open classroom teaching that were popular at that time. The building now consists of three pods, housing the sixth, seventh, and eighth grades. The school also houses a full-sized gymnasium, library, band room, and music room.
