The school started out with students from Grade 5 to 8. In 1966, Norman Carter became a Division I and II school, teaching Grades 1 to 6 inclusive. In 1971, a resource center and an open area were added on to the existing building. In 1982, Norman Carter School added on a beautiful gymnasium, a developmental center, new office space, a resource space and a spacious library.
