About the Norwich City School District

Norwich Administration Staff 2018-19 

The Norwich City School District is organized on a PreK-2, 3-5, 6-8, 9-12 plan with students attending a full-day kindergarten and six years of elementary school, followed by three years of middle school and a four-year high school program.

Stanford J. Gibson Primary School serves 350 students in PreK-2, while close to 400 attend Perry Browne Intermediate School for grades 3-5. These facilities provide a modern elementary school program, including library media and computer services; instruction in the special areas of art, music, physical education, remedial reading, writing and mathematics; and instruction for students with special learning needs.

Norwich Middle School welcomes roughly 400 students in grades 6-8 and also offers a modern educational program with an individualized approach to instruction. This program includes exploratory classes in art, music, home and career skills, technology and second languages. A library media center is available and students may participate in extra-curricular activities such as interscholastic and intramural sports, vocal and instrumental music groups, and a variety of club activities.

Norwich High School offers a comprehensive program of academic courses and activities to just under 600 students in grades 9-12. NHS runs on a rotating, two-day schedule with four quarters. Classes are 74 minutes in length and, in addition to college preparatory courses, include business, technology, education, home & career skills, art and music. Extra-curricular programs are offered in athletics, music and a variety of other activities. Norwich High School uses a numerical marking system and is accredited by the New York State Board of Regents and Middle Atlantic Association of Schools and Colleges. Class Rank is computed at the end of junior year and after the first semester of senior year.

All school buildings include state-of-the-art computer facilities.

About the Norwich Community

The Norwich City School District is located in Chenango County, approximately 40 miles north of Binghamton and 45 miles south of Utica. The City School District was created in 1954, through consolidation of 21 common school districts with that of the City of Norwich. We are one of seven City-Central school districts in New York state. With an estimated 1995 population of 12,000, the greater Norwich area became the seat of Chenango County. The Norwich area is largely rural in character, but the City of Norwich is commercial and industrial. The City is home to manufacturers such as Procter & Gamble Pharmaceuticals, Inc.; Unison Industries (jet engine ignition systems and electronic products); QUEST International-Sheffield Products, Inc. (dairy by-products); and the offices of Chobani, LLC (yogurt).

The community is served by a modern and fully accredited 123-bed hospital. The county seat is located in Norwich, where a modern county office building, county court house and other county facilities are located.

Norwich features a SUNY Morrisville extension and is a short drive from Morrisville and fellow SUNY colleges in Binghamton, Oneonta and Cortland. Other colleges relatively close to Norwich are Colgate University, Hamilton College, Hartwick College and Syracuse University.

There are six public parks within the city, one equipped with an outdoor swimming pool and another with an outdoor skating rink. The community's cultural diversity includes an active Chamber of Commerce.

The city is host to several weekend cultural and family fun events throughout the year, too. Balloon Fest, Pumpkin Fest, Colorscape Chenango, Blues Festival, County Fair and the Gus Macker Basketball Tournament draw thousands to the city center annually.

Norwich is also home to the Chenango County Historical Society and the Northeast Classic Car Museum.
