Noblesville has some great things going for it unfortunately, it doesn t live up to the hype. While they are supposed to have high academic standards, we found their honors classes were 2 years behind the school we came from. My student s COUNSELOR, was a new college grad in CREATIVE WRITING. She was expected, as a course of her job, to provide CAREER, ACADEMIC &, HR counseling as well as intervention services. She had received no training in those areas. The school district is in one of the most affluent areas in the states. It has more funding for extra-curricular activities and the latest technologies. Every student has an IPAD this year. However, the students take no responsibility for their work, behavior or grades. The teachers cannot teach effectively, when parents provide no discipline. You will not find the high violent crime like IPS school experience, but there is a reason the juvie is right across the street. Drugs, sex and alcohol are rampant. Expect to spend $$ on Class trips to New York City, Disney World, Peru, Germany, or Spain to name a few. If you are middle class, you can expect your student to receive a hard time.
