    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!

    As the Parent of two children who have attended Nobles I can say with the utmost confidence that the school and the teachers are committed to the success of the students and supporting them.

    The older child went under the prior Head of School and I will say that the environment did seem less divisive then, but it could just be that Nobles is flexing to how society is focusing. Would have loved to see that culture continue, but recognize change is the one constant. Only concern (small) I could express about the school.
    As a repeat Junior at Noble and Greenough High School, it was very easy for me to feel comfortable at the school and feel that I fit in. I made friends quickly and in so was welcomed into the community with open arms. The education that Nobles provides for students doesn't only prepare them for college, but prepares them for the real world. The Athletics are very competitive and they always compete at a high level while doing so in a respectful manner. I can say I have thoroughly enjoyed every second at the school and wish I had come sooner.
