    I have to admit...this school has a bad grade hanging over their heads and it looks like 2012 was a bad year. However I've noticed that they have improved a lot this year (2013) with teachers introducing new programs and new ideas to help our children. They've realized that old ways of teaching are no longer applicable to our children since we live in different times.However I've also realize that in order for this school to succeed the parents as well as my wife and I need to do our part when the kids come home from school. We need to educate our kids to be more discipline with their education. We as parents need to be more involved with our children's lives because at the end...the teachers can't do it all alone.

    This school is horrible. My boys have been attending since second grade on and off. The teachers are hit and miss. The young teachers seem to really care about the students the majority of the older teachers just need to retire. Their old way of teaching needs to be hung up IT'S NOT WORKING!!! just look at the horrible test scores. VOID this school at all cost Thank God we are finally moving...I have never met a more getto group of kids than the ones that go to noble

    Not a very good school. the staff and teachers are not helpful! I feel like this year this school held back alot of learning that my children should have picked up on.
