Maplehurst Elementary is located at 195 St. Mary's Street near the northeastern edge of Norwalk and serves over 500 students in pre-school, Kindergarten and 1st grade throughout the Norwalk community. The school has a staff of 24 full-time classroom teachers, 8 full or part time support teachers, and 8 full- or part-time classified employees.
Maplehurst was built in 1953. The original structure housed seven classrooms, offices, and a multipurpose room. In 1956, the two story wing of the building was erected, adding an additional fifteen classrooms. The summer of 1989 saw the addition of a modular unit on the site, adding two more classrooms. Recent additions of an outdoor fitness center, playground equipment and soccer fields have provided excellent physical education and recreation facilities for school and community use.
An active PTO and volunteer program greatly enhances the school's offerings and opportunities. Individual parents contribute many hours of service volunteering in the library, classrooms, the "publishing center", and classroom parties as well as a number of other areas. The PTO provides family activities, school programs and school and playground equipment. The following programs were possible due to the cooperative efforts of the PTO fund raisers which have become school and community traditions: Fall Open House, School Wide Halloween Party, The Turkey Trot, Student Talent Show, Maplehurst Fun Fair, Art Show, Student Of The Month Program, Santa's Christmas Shop, PTO Christmas Bazaar, and School Music Programs and Assemblies.
A dedicated staff, supportive and involved parents, and a commitment to excellence in education have combined to make Maplehurst an excellent educational institution. This excellence is evidenced by Maplehurst's past selection as a "Hall of Fame School", an award given to ten Ohio elementary schools each year. It is the goal of the entire academic program which allows and encourages each child to reach his or her fullest potential.
Children learn best when learning is fun. The Norwalk City Schools Preschool program provides a stimulating, fun environment where 4-year-olds are taught to become self-reliant problem solvers. Individualized, carefully planned daily activities encourage independent thinking and social interaction. The program's holistic approach prepares each child to make smart choices in the life ahead of them.
