This school's teachers and administration work hard and care for students. NHS provides a small school feel with large school academic selections and extra curricular activities...for the most part. NHS is a 5A high school but it does not offer 5A selections like; Pom, orchestra, and other activities or organizations a high school student may want to take. Furthermore, many of the stakeholders feel like suggestions for school improvement fall on deaf ears. There are a lot of family and friend connections throughout the district which makes change difficult. Because of this mentality, Noble tends to get a bad wrap, as being "good-old-boy" or "backwoods" from surrounding communities. However, it is in my opinion, that Noble High School has great students, teachers and staff. As an educator, I know that some of the cliental Noble has can be challenging to teach. However, Noble does an outstanding job educating all students. Debating on moving to the Noble area? I would recommend calling the high school to make sure they offer the academic courses and extra curricular activities your child would like. If they have what you are looking for, do not hesitate to enroll.
Home away from home. The teachers care about each individual student and try to make each life better they come in contact with.
I have had three kids enter this school, they were the new kids but had no trouble fitting in. The kids were so nice to them. My kids never got into any fights or had any problems. Two of them went to OU, one has graduated, another is about to, the third has been accepted in and will graduate from Noble this year. They had no troubles academically and all of them did well on their ACT tests. I would like to say to those on the site who said their kids had trouble fitting in or got into fights, that's a parenting problem, not a school problem. If your kid was unable to make it at college, that is a parenting problem too. It's so easy to blame the school, it's a lot harder to look in the mirror. All schools have problems with fighting, drugs and sex but the blame is with poor parenting, take the time to know your kids from birth to adulthood and they won't get into so much trouble. My daughter told me this yesterday "Do you know why I'm such a good kid mom, never getting into trouble or causing you to ever worry?" "No, Why?" I asked... my 17 year old daughter said "Because I love you and I don't ever want to make you sad. I don't want to ever disappoint you." Enough said.
Just like any High School in the state of the country, there are both good and bad people enrolled. I was a 12 year senior at Noble and my two oldest kids have been 12 year seniors there. I know many people look down at small schools, but our our ACT test scores are above the state average and the administration has always been top notch. The only reason there is not a 5th star is the lack of involvement from parents, there is a large gap between parent participation and the students. I see the same small group of parents at every fund raiser, or sporting event, sometimes I believe the parents have to step up to make a school district a perfect 5 Star, sometimes the people who complain need to look in the mirror and take responsibility for their kids. I know the schools can do more, but if the parents don't get involved the student ultimately is the one suffering. My daughter will be my 3rd child to be a 12 year senior at Noble, and if my kids decide to raise their family's here they too will be proud to put their kids in Noble Public Schools.
I went to noble high the school is full of drugs sex and low life's !!!! I came from Norman and hade never seen such things as what goes on in Noble!! Unless you was born there none of the other kids would ever let you fit in!!!! Fights are a everyday thing!!! Bulling is a big problem!!!!
I have 2 granddaughter in the 3rd grade. They have been placed in the Title 1 program. After 1/2 a year, they didn't seem to be progressing and attitude problems were Identified. I called a meeting with the principal, he referred me to another person. I never received a goal or plan to follow the progress of the child. Plus, I found out that thier were things going on in the class, which were the bases of the childs attitude of not wanting to learn. there has been no meetings with staff to reach the learning goals of progress. The principal would n't investigate the issues that I brought up.
I graduated from Noble High and I was very happy there. I had a good relationship with just about all of my teachers. I worked hard and earned the respect of these people. If you're child doesn't have the capablity to do for themselves then they'll have trouble where ever they go. Most teachers here will go out of their way to help the students, but if the student doesn't help themself there isn't much anyone can do. I can only speak for my class when I say that everyone knew everyone and I didn't see much bulling at all. I transfered from Norman and the atmosphere is completely different. I stopped getting into as many fights and the students by far were nicer in general. I had great teachers that I love and respect, because they were 'hard' on me.
I have had 3 almost 4 kides finish school here. I had 2 of them in OKC the frist 2 years of school and was very unhappy with the schooling. When we come to noble they were more then willing to help with the kids. I have been very happy with the way they care about the kids that go here. I have 3 out of school now and one will be out in about 2 more years. And they did such a good job with my kids that now my sister and my daughters kids are going here. So I feel these are very good schools and a wonderful town to raise your children in.
I am not understanding how anyone can give this school anything but an unsatisfactory rating. They never return faxes for weeks. One would think these people would want to do a good job considering what their job is!
I am a high schoool student at Noble, and i love this school! It's a very small town, and it's very safe. I know everybody and the teachers are very nice. Noble is a great town, and it has wonderful schools.
I went to Noble since I started school, and I loved it. The teachers are good, but of corse u have some that are not. There are kids who like to pick and bully others but, I blame that on the kids parents. When it comes to it Noble is great. Small town less crime. I still live here and can't wait for my daughter to go to Noble.
During my 12 years teaching at Noble I have never been more happy than I am with our principal, Frank Solomon. He has created a strong family atmosphere, with outstanding leadership. This man is in the business for the kids! If you are looking for a school and community who cares about America's future, you should try Noble Public Schools!
I transferred my 2 children from Moore,one who is in the 10th grade and one who is in the 3rd.It was hard for the older one to cope because of loosing his friends..he became involved with a school activity and the teacher was amazing took him in and treated him as if he were his own, never could I have asked for a better role model than Mr Gus the FFA teacher. I thank him for making a difference in my child's life, and for the younger one, she was having difficulties in comprehending and for her teacher taking the extra mile to help her we were blessed, Noble has awesome teachers...
My daughter transferred to Noble from Norman in the fourth grade and was welcomed by a great teacher that she loved! The High School principle has always been available to me and my concerns and never hesitated to help us in the best way he could. I never worry about gang activity or hate crimes the way I would if she were going to a larger school. My daughter consistently scores at college level on all testing and is confident about her future plans to attend OU. That in my book, is a great school.
Well, I'm not a parent but I'm going to rate this anyway. I was a student here and personally I loved it. Churches are a big thing here, but you know what, who cares, us students don't really. Most of the teachers are great but most of the principals are...blah. But I guess that is the answer you would expect from a student though. Most people fit right in here, you know we do have the different cliques and all, but really we all know each other, and most of us have friends in all groups. I really enjoyed it here, and I wish everyday that I was back here. Please if you want your child going here, just tell them to be a little out going on their first day. Even if they're the quite type they'll fit right in. PROMISE. Football games are awesome~!
Being a student of Noble High School i have to say it is a great school and i would recommend the school to anyone and everyone.
As with all schools, there are some excellent teachers and some not so excellent. I have had three children attend. If a child is active in sports, drama, or music then they will have a fair chance of enjoying Noble and having teachers and staff behind them, if not, then forget it. Christianity is high on the must list. My children were not christian therefore harassed even by friends. If your child is different then Noble is not the place to be. I have found most teachers to be very reasonable and honest. The principles have had a harder time making my 'A' list.
After reading some of the past reviews about Noble High School and being a past graduate some 30 years ago, I feel the level of teaching is still very strong, our daughters attended this school and have gone on to have very successful careers. The only reason some children become distraught is because they are not getting involved. In the real world today, you have to be on the cutting edge. You can not just sit back and wait for something to happen, because it wont. I am very proud to be a part of a great community and Alumnus to a great school. Roy Jennings
As a former student at Noble, I have to say that I am very proud to say I attended this school. I was a transfer student my senior year and was welcomed into this school right a way. The teachers helped me out and there is nothing negative I can say about this school.
