The earliest known school in the Norge area was established during the 1870’s. Since then there have been several schools in the area, ranging from one room private and public schools to Toano High School, which closed in 1955.
Norge Elementary School opened in 1967. It serves approximately 650 students from kindergarten through fifth grade. The building was extensively renovated and a new wing housing fifth grade classrooms, the NEED Center, media center, technology classroom, and art room was added.
Norge is also the home of the Bright Beginnings, a preschool program for students between the ages of 2 and 5 with disabilities. Additional preschool classes housing students enrolled in Bright Beginnings and Head Start are located in our preschool area, bringing our total preschool enrollment to approximately 175 students.
Norge has over 100 adult staff members – teachers, teaching assistants, cafeteria workers, administrators, and specialists. Each member of the Norge staff is committed to providing a secure and respectful environment so that every student can focus on learning. We work closely with personnel in the central office, student services office, building services, and transportation centers in implementing the educational program.
Parents and other community members are also an important part of the Norge school community. The PTA provides an important link among home, school, volunteers, and business partnerships to enhance learning opportunities.
The James City County Recreation Department offers before and after school programs for students attending Norge. For information, call 259-3200.
Our school is led by a Student Council Association. Our SCA organizes and promotes special activities and spirit boosters throughout the year.
Norge is a Relay for Life school with three teams composed of faculty and staff.
