Nobles is a special place rich with tradition, oozing with school pride, and steadfast in strong community principles. I feel so fortunate to have spent my high school life in such a place where I was accepted, encouraged and challenged all in perfect harmony. The teachers are happy to be there too--they are also encouraged to challenge themselves and develop as educators and that is clear in the way they immerse themselves in their curriculum and their afternoon program duties. I love nobles more than words can share--could not recommend it more!
Review Noble and Greenough School
My child has thrived in this environment one that is tough, but with a lot of resources for kids. 28% of the student body are students of color, and about 27% are on some sort of scholarship. Last year 33 of 120 students went to an Ivy League school with many more selecting top rate schools: ((http://www.nobles.edu/upper-school/2017-matriculation.cfm) Great trips from the EXCEL Department going to India, Guatemala, New Orleans, Rwanda Romania and South Africa. It's not for everyone with a rigorous curriculum and LOTS of homework, and very bright kids from wealthy families, but you see kids on campus very late at night who love being there
I regretted coming to Nobles and wish I had chosen a different prep school to attend. Facilities are top notch, but underneath the shiny veneer is a closed cliquish culture that breeds elitism, conformity and entitlement. I'm sure the school is a great match for some, but it was not for me. Some teachers were very good, others absolutely horrible. I am grateful that Nobles helped me get into a very good college, but I found myself ill prepared for undergraduate studies. Two advanced graduate degrees later, I look back at my college experience, rather than my time at Nobles, with fondness.
