Directions

Welcome. The Nora School is easily accessible via public transportation as well as by car. We are close to Washington, DC, and located inside the beltway in Silver Spring, Maryland. We have returned to our newly constructed, expanded building at 955 Sligo Avenue and invite you to come visit us.

Located near the corner of Georgia Avenue and Sligo Avenue, the school is a ten-minute walk from the Silver Spring Metro station, which is a hub for the J MetroBuses from Bethesda and the S MetroBuses from Washington DC. The station is also a destination for the MARC trains from Gaithersburg (Brunswick Line) and the MTA Express Buses from Howard County (915 and 929). The free VanGo RideOn, the MetroBus F4, and the Ride-On bus #16 all go from the Silver Spring station to the school, though most students prefer to walk the several blocks.
