Athletics are an important part of any adolescent experience – from learning new physical skills and sportsmanship to simply enjoying the thrill of activity and competition.
Many students play sports for the sheer love of the game. But in our sports programs at Norton, on top of the thrill of competing and having fun with friends, students experience benefits that support their academic, social and emotional growth in middle school. Our coaches, and teachers work together to ensure our students are performing academically. We schedule practices after school so that students can prioritize academics.
