Posted August 9, 2010

My son was diagnosed with ADD in second grade, the school he was in until 5th grade was unable to give him the help he needed and he fell through the cracks and was behind. In the year since we have been at Noble he has gotten more help than he ever has. He has been tested, put into smaller classroom settings and been given tutoring. The staff from teachers to counselors has been wonderful to work with and has hopefully put my son on the right path. I would recommend this school to anyone.

I was very surprised at how good the staff and the teachers were at this school. my son is in high school now so my position of noble is from looking in rear view mirror. The kids are sequestered within groups, the teachers co- teach and the principal and staff are cheery and helpful.

We pulled our child out of Noble after less than a year. Bullying and bad language is out of control at the school and on the buses. The staff does little to stop it.

I feel that Noble Middle is one of the safest middle schools in the area. The staff is a wonderful example of 'Teamwork'. I am proud to send my daughter to school each day!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 North Carolina used End-of-Grade (EOG) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The EOG is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of North Carolina. Students must pass the grade 8 EOG test in order to graduate from high school. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the tests.
