Our experience at the school this year made it easy to understand why the rating dropped to 3/10. My child witnessed bullying, teachers told her not to be tattletale, the principle wanted to save the student who was bullying and not those who were effected by his actions (swearing, punching, broke a child's arm, threatened others, etc.). The pressure put on the kids to do well on the state testing was over the top. Perhaps the worst experience was finding out half way through the year that the teachers were being pulled out of their classrooms 2-3 days every week for "training" of some sort and our kids had subs instead. The school made no attempts to communicate this, it was learned by asking my child about her day and then finally initiating a conversation with the school to find out more. I don't know about you, but I sure want a dedicated teacher with my child more than 60% of the time to ensure continued learning. In the end, I pulled my child and am taking her to a better school. We must not be alone, since a survey was sent home the last week of school asking parents if their children would be returning next year. Open enrollment is a nice option.

My daughters attend Noble and love it. The staff is wonderful and the esprit de corps fabulous. My girls love the Chess Club on Wednesdays, Music class and look forward to starting in the string program in 4th grade.

My daughter is in her second year at this scool. She absolutly loves it! The teachers are amazing, the staff is always willing to help. They are very accepting of parental involvment, in fact it is strongly encouraged. I volunteer on a weekly basis inside and outside of my childs classs and find it very rewarding. I only wish this was a K-12 school as it is going to be very hard to have her leave such a wonderful program!

My Grandchildren have gone to this school and it has always been well run, provided excellent teachers who handle their classrooms well have been outstanding in the academic arena. The parent involvement is high as well and the children have opportunities for help as well as challenges for the brighter students.
