• Viking Points of Pride    

     Normandy teachers, students and alumni embody a unique and deep sense of pride when it comes to the Collaborative -- and for good reason. The Normandy Schools Collaborative continues to have:

    • Active and involved alumni who support the Collaborative with several endeavors including several scholarship programs for Normandy seniors.

    • An award-winning high school marching and jazz band who participated in the Auto Zone Liberty Bowl in Memphis, Tenn.

    • Partnerships with local colleges and universities to provide dual enrollment & dual credit courses for high school students. Normandy is also providing internships for students through a collaboration with Centene Corporation.

    • Nationally recognized literary magazine, The View from Here, co-written & co-produced by students from Normandy 7-8th Grade Center and John Burroughs School. The middle school's newspaper, The Viking Times, has also been recognized nationally, having received second place in the American Scholastic Press Association contest. 

    • Normandy graduates have made names for themselves in a variety of industries and professions, including medicine, media, performing arts, engineering, education, athletics, and business.

    The Collaborative has also been recognized locally and nationally for its efforts to improve the lives of those in the community.

    • NSC and the 24:1 Community (the 24 municipalities which make up the school district) received the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Culture of Health Prize. The award recognizes the efforts of groups to improve the physical and mental well-being of the community.robert wood johnson prize congratulations

    • The Collaborative is the recipient of the 2017 Focus St. Louis What’s Right with the Region in the category of Fostering Regional Cooperation. Normandy was selected for its partnerships with Wyman and Beyond Housing to boost student academic achievement by providing resources to families.

         And the list goes on. The Collaborative continues to increase the offerings for students to ensure a solid, academic experience. Below is a list of programs and offerings for our students:

    • The Collaborative has consistently increased its students’ academic performance and other standards measured by the state. For the 2016-2017 school year, Normandy earned 87.5 points on the state’s Annual Performance Report, landing the Collaborative in the Provisional Accredited range for the second year in a row. This score is based on the district’s graduation and attendance rates, academic offerings and as well as student results on the Missouri Assessment Program test. The academic improvement led the state Board of Education to classify Normandy as a Provisionally Accredited school district, beginning January 2, 2018. 

    • Normandy has entered a partnership with Wyman Center to coordinate wraparound services for students and their families. This allows the Collaborative to help meet the needs and challenges students may be encountering outside the classroom, but affect their performance in class. This includes socio-emotional curriculum in the PreK and kindergarten levels, as well as ‘trauma-informed training’ for all Normandy staff.

    • The Collaborative has reinstated the Gifted and Talented Education (GATE) program in grades 3-8 for students demonstrating special talents in the arts, academics or other subject areas. 

    • At the high school, we are offering dual enrollment/dual credit courses with St. Louis Community College and Lindenwood University. There is also an internship program with Centene Corporation, providing ambitious and talented seniors an opportunity to gain real-world experience with a Fortune 500 company.

    • The Collaborative has also added more extra-curricular activities, e.g., elementary and middle school athletics, chess teams, LEGO/robotics teams, step teams, and cheerleading.

    • Operationally, the Collaborative is looking at ways to improve and streamline services to become more efficient. Student transportation services is now managed in-house. Normandy hires and trains all drivers in an effort to improve transportation services and provide a better experience for students, families and staff.
