Norwayne High School is located in the Norwayne Local
School District. Serving the communities of Creston, Sterling and
Burbank, Ohio, the Norwayne Local School District is located in Wayne
County, 20 minutes north of Wooster. You can locate us easily on a map
by searching for the I-71/I-76 interchange in Northeast Ohio. That
area is the northwest corner of our school district.
We recently completed a building renovation project in
conjunction with the Ohio Schools Facilities Commission that resulted in the
construction of a new Norwayne Elementary School serving grades k-5 and a
renovation/addition to the Norwayne High School Complex being completely
renovated and added on to create a 6-12 facility. Our rehearsal spaces
are "state-of the art" as a result of this newly completed renovation.
Our facilities consist of a large rehearsal room, a music classroom,
adequate storage space, a music library, and 5 practice rooms. Of
particular note is a beautifully-renovated 364-seat auditorium, renamed the
"Dwight Schar Performing Arts Center" in honor of Norwayne alumnus Dwight
Schar who donated the money necessary to renovate that facility.
Norwayne High School has a home student population of
approximately 360 students. There are approximately 60-90 students per
year based in the Norwayne Local School District that either are
engaged in an off-site post-secondary format or attend classes at the Wayne County
Schools Career Center.
The mission of the Norwayne High School Bands is to
establish a reputation not based on size, but on technique and ability.

Music education really
builds the foundation to math and science skills. It's been proven. It's
been on the cover of magazines (Newsweek, among others). It's been on the
evening news. If there's ANY program that should be saved, it's the music
program in your local public school. It's as important as reading, writing
