Our District

The Norwin School District serves approximately 5,300 students in grades K-12.
Norwin School District is comprised of the municipalities of North Huntingdon Township, Irwin Borough and North Irwin Borough in southwestern Westmoreland County. There is also a small portion of the School District (18 properties) in neighboring Allegheny County in White Oak Borough and South Versailles Township. The Norwin School District is the result of the 1958 jointure between the North Huntingdon Township Schools and the Irwin Borough Schools, reuniting what was in the 1930's one system.

Approximately ten (10) miles from Greensburg, the county seat, and twenty (20) miles from downtown Pittsburgh, off exit 67 (old exit 7) of the Pennsylvania Turnpike, the community covers thirty-six (36) square miles while serving as home to approximately 30,000 residents.
The mission of the Norwin School District is to provide a positive, learner-centered environment that supports the growth of all students.
