About Us

St. Norbert School opened in August 1988 with classes in grades Kindergarten through 3. The staff consisted of Sr. Rosalie Wisneski, OSF, as the first principal, Fr. Jim Schaefer, pastor, and a full time staff of 4 teachers.

In 1989 a 4th grade was added as well as an additional 1st grade.

In June 1991, Sr. Agnes M. Keena, BVM, became the second principal of St. Norbert. At this time the school had classes in grades K-6 with double classrooms of grades K-3. It was the goal of the parish to continue this pattern of growth until the school had double
classrooms for grades K-8.

A new church was dedicated on November 29, 1992, and the original church was renovated into a parish hall with additional classrooms which opened in September 1994.

In June 1999 Mrs. Pamela Gilbert became the third principal.   Under her guidance the school expanded to include a preschool for ages three and four beginning in 2008.

 In 2010 the K-8 students from St. Sabina's Parish joined the St. Norbert students at the New Halls Ferry facility.  The preschools were combined and additional classes were added for each age level.  The preschool is located at the St. Sabina facility on Swallow Rd.

In May of 2014, Mrs. Gilbert retired and Mr. Dave Watkins was hired as the principal of the school. Mrs. Julie Hayes was the Vice Principal. Mrs. Hayes left in 2015 to work as the principal at St. James the Greater Parish School. Mr. Watkins retired in March 2016.

Mrs. Nestor is the current principal of the school.

The school now serves approximately 190 families, 242 students in K-8, and 40 students in the preschool.
