Discover St. Norbert School.

For more than a century, St. Norbert School has prepared its students for a life of success by immersing its students in a continuous learning program from preschool through eighth grade. Our students benefit academically and social- emotionally from the individualized attention, support, and opportunity small classes afford. In fact, each year our graduates have opportunities to enroll directly into Geometry, Spanish II and Honors English courses their freshman year of high school.
With an array of clubs, no-cut athletic teams, and other extra-curricular opportunities to choose from, our students develop the critical life skills they need to thrive during their time at St. Norbert School and beyond.
Contact our admissions department at [email protected] to discover how you can make a difference in your child's life with a St. Norbert education.
We are proud to offer daily bus service from Holy Cross Parish in Deerfield to St. Norbert School.

K - 2 Literacy Results Are Off the Charts!

The new literacy program implemented across grades K - 2 had a powerful impact on student learning.

Reading is a fundamental skill for success in school and in life. At St. Norbert School, we believe every child has the right to read. Our research-based curriculum explicitly teaches students how to decode written text (read) and encode spoken language (write). All students receive explicit, systematic instruction with progress monitoring.This ensures that each child learns to crack the code of alphabetic text and develops into a highly capable reader and writer.

During the 2022-2023 school year we implemented a new phonics program called UFLI Foundations. The UFLI program is based upon research that found effective early literacy instruction works best when it:

  • "Develops awareness of the segments of sounds in speech and how they link to letters,
  • Teaches students to decode words, analyze word parts, and write and recognize words,
  • Ensures that each student reads connected text every day to support accuracy, fluency, and comprehension" (UFLI, 2022).
The results after one year of implementation were extraordinary.  The average growth of our kindergarten class was near two times the average growth of kindergarten students nationally. 

New K -5 Science Lab Coming Soon!

Students in grades K - 5 will have a new science lab this fall.
As part of our commitment to continuous improvement, St. Norbert School is in the process of adding a dedicated K - 5 science lab to the building.  This summer, the SNS maintenance team is hard at work preparing the new space so that it's ready for curiosity, investigation, and discovery throughout the 2023-2024 school year.  Many thanks to all those who contributed to the Crusader Annual Fund, making this addition possible!
