Welcome to the Britton-Norwich Learning Campus!
We are excited to welcome you into the Britton-Norwich Learning community, where your child is the heart of our work. We are dedicated to connecting to every child, and using the unique strengths of the campus model to cultivate strong foundations in academics, mindset and interests. Our K-2 (Britton Building) and 3-5 (Norwich Building) alignment allows focused professional development for teachers and learning opportunities to be tailored to the unique characteristics of children as they grow and develop.
Across the campus our priority is educating the whole child. We utilize the District Literacy and Math Frameworks to build strong academic foundations. Responsive Classroom and the Zones of Regulation are our community frameworks that give us the tools to positively connect and contribute to our community. We take time to reflect and emphasize building understanding of ourselves and empathy that can be extended to others.
We also believe in bringing our students and families together to strengthen partnerships. We have an active PTO (Parent Teacher Organization) and encourage our school community to get involved in many ways!
We look forward to partnering with each of our families and students. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at any time.
