Norwalk Middle School is located at 64 Christie Ave and serves students in grades 7 and 8. Originally designed in the early 1960's to house grades seven and eight, the school now accommodates in excess of 480 students. In 1984, the voters of Norwalk provided funding to expand the school to include four classrooms, a multipurpose room, handicap restrooms and a teacher's work room.
Norwalk Middle School continues to be committed to providing the most appropriate education for each student as evidenced by the varied curriculum. The Middle School is proud to offer specialized programs for students with learning disabilities and developmental and physical handicaps. Also a source of pride are curriculum offerings for the academically gifted students and a modern computer laboratory. Norwalk Middle School became a member of the North Central Association of Schools and Colleges in 1977, and currently stands among only 35 middle schools out of 450 in the state of Ohio to hold membership.
The curricular offerings are accented by a wide array of co-curricular offerings such as boys and girls sports, drama club, student council, student-teacher athletic tournaments, band & orchestra recitals, yearbook staff, academic challenge, science fair competition and much more.
In addition to the other offerings, many activities, events and special programs have been developed to raise the self-esteem of each child. Special programs include Academic Recognition Night, seventh and eighth grade Spring Dances, The Breakfast of Champions, and many, many more.
The Middle School strives to provide a successful transition between elementary school and high school while recognizing the special needs of the adolescent. The success of the school program is the direct result of the interaction between teachers, administrators, students and community.
