We are #NormandyStrong!
Welcome to the Normandy Schools Collaborative, the home of Viking Pride!
The Normandy Schools Collaborative is a family of educators, administrators, support staff, community members and parents committed to providing a high-quality education to each of our 3,300 students enrolled in our schools. For our teachers and staff, our work is more than a job. It is our mission to improve the lives of our students by equipping them with the tools to solve 21st Century challenges. We proudly do this with a strong commitment to the Normandy Pillars of Accountability, Collaboration, Professionalism, Trust and Respect.
To ensure a strong foundation for our youngest scholars, Normandy offers a full-day, state-recognized Early Childhood Center which utilizes the Project Construct curriculum. We continue the focus of building future scholars at the elementary grades, emphasizing literacy and mathematics fluency with our Balanced Literacy curriculum and small-group instruction strategies.
For our exceptionally talented students, we provide our Gifted and Talented Education programs for grades 3-8. At the high school, students may choose courses in the Project Lead the Way curriculum which include Engineering, Biomedical Sciences, and Entrepreneurship, in addition to Advanced Placement, and dual credit/dual enrollment courses with St. Louis Community College and Lindenwood University. Normandy High School also provides Career Pathways in entrepreneurship, performing arts, and STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics), offering students a specialized and targeted development plan to prepare them for life after graduation.
The Normandy 7th-8th Grade Center offers a team-centered approach for students, with gifted education, chess club, and a variety of other academic and extracurricular offerings for middle school students.
The Normandy Schools Collaborative is located in St. Louis County, directly northwest of St. Louis city. Conveniently near Interstates 70 & 170, the Collaborative is neighbors to the University of Missouri-St. Louis, Fortune 100 corporation Express Scripts, and historic neighborhoods like Glen Echo Park, Bel-Nor, Bellerieve Acres, and Pasadena Hills.
To better address the needs of our students, the Collaborative partners with a variety of community organizations and agencies. For example, the Collaborative works with Beyond Housing on several initiatives and projects to support Normandy families to ensure all students are prepared to excel in and out of the classroom. Other agency partners include Wyman Center, Better Family Life, and Big Brothers Big Sisters -- all working in concert to ensure Normandy students excel.
All professional staff members are fully certified by the Missouri Department Elementary and Secondary Education. Every school has a full-time, principal whose primary responsibility is to ensure students are receiving effective instruction and supports. The average length of tenure for teachers in the district is 15 years. Over half of the district's staff hold master's degrees.
Students in the district benefit from a strong and aggressive curriculum, nationally recognized academic programs, a full-range of extracurricular activities, a highly educated and motivated teaching force, low pupil/teacher ratios, and teams of specially trained counselors and social workers — all committed to enhancing each student's academic and personal growth.
