Noble has made a huge impact on our son and his education! The small classes and individualized attention to his learning styles and needs have gone a long way to restore his self-confidence, and we have seen a tremendous amount of growth academically, socially, and emotionally in the short time that he has been there. I appreciate the highly structured communication channels and use of technology, so that I feel that I have a grasp on what is going on at school and know what we need to be reinforcing at home. The faculty is caring and compassionate, and learning is presented creatively and appropriate to each student. I can't imagine my son being anywhere else at this point of his education.

The staff and teachers know the individual needs of each and every student. I couldn't ask for a better school for my children's needs! Noble is a true blessing for our family.

My girls both attend Noble Academy. My oldest did not want to leave her friends from public school and now loves Noble. They love their classes, their teachers and the sports! The teachers are nurturing, supportive and creative. My kids now love to learn. No one gets left out at Noble. The atmosphere is positive and inviting.

GDS is the best school ever! My name is Matt and I am a Freshman at this school. When I first moved here I was a little apprehensive, but after the first day, I was in love with the school. I have made many great friends and I have so many great teachers. The benefits of this school are: The kids are extremely nice, the principal Tim is really cool, the teachers let you call them by their first name, and on average I only get about a half-hour worth of homework per night. Another great thing about GDS is that it's education system is phenomenal, I literally went from getting all F's to all A's and B's. They use hands on education and help you stay organized by using the 'perfect notebook system.' also PE. is attended next door at the YMCA. GDS IS BY FAR THE BEST SCHOOL EVER!

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
