Norton was (and still is) a wonderful school. I went to Norton all the way from Kindergarten to 5th Grade. The availability of programs and extracurricular activities is extraordinary. What was really important to me was that the teachers, assistants, principal, PTA, and all other people at Norton were understanding and nice. Don't let anyone tell you differently.
