Norwood International High School

Norwood International High School is located in the leafy eastern suburbs of Adelaide, only 15 minutes from the city centre and 5 minutes from the busy shopping and restaurant precinct of Norwood Parade. The school, comprised of the Middle School (Years 7-9) and Senior School (Years 10-12), is internationally accredited by the Council of International Schools (CIS) and is an IB World School authorised to deliver the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (IBMYP) in Years 7-10 and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) in Years 11-12.

A key feature of the school is the way it values and celebrates diversity. Students from a very wide range of cultural and linguistic backgrounds respect and learn from each other. This is supported by a curriculum which actively promotes international mindedness and an internationalised education.

At Norwood International High School, we are committed to supporting every student to graduate as an engaged global citizen and be able to meet the challenges of this changing world.
