About Naramake

Welcome to Naramake Elementary School

Naramake Elementary is located in Norwalk, Connecticut and has been part of the Norwalk community since 1962. Currently Naramake Elementary serves 350 students in grades PreK - 5 and is one of 12 public elementary schools in the area. Naramake has an outstanding community of dedicated teachers and students supported by a very active PTA.

Naramake is on the move!  We have recently partnered with the International Center for Leadership in Education (ICLE) to become the "Nation's First Quad D Lab School".  Through our partnership with ICLE, and drawing on the strong relationships within our school community, every teacher in grades K-5 is currently being trained on research-based teaching strategies that engage students in a rigorous, collaborative learning environment.  Beginning with the 2019-20 school year, Naramake will serve as a learning "lab" where other Norwalk Public School teachers can complete teaching fellowships designed to strengthen their craft at lesson design and implementation in order to raise the bar on Tier 1 instruction and increase achievement for all students.

Our Vision

Naramake Elementary School is a vibrant community of learners committed to empowering children to grow academically, socially, and emotionally through a 21st-century learning experience.  We strive to create a generation of life-long learners prepared for future success by facilitating educational experiences that encourage students to apply a growth mindset; students creatively and collaboratively solve complex problems using critical thinking and communication skills in a safe and nurturing environment.


The school is an institution created by society for the perpetuation of American ideals through the development of knowledge, skills, habits and attitudes. It is entrusted with the youth of the community in order to prepare them to take an active part in, and to contribute constructively to, the democratic way of life.

Each child shall be accepted as an individual and helped and encouraged to cultivate his/her talents and abilities to the utmost. The school is only one of many institutions in our society which is concerned with the well being of the child. It must work cooperatively with the home and community agencies to insure that the physical, mental, emotional, moral and social growth of every child may reach its maximum potential.

It is upon the professional staff that the success of the program rests.
