    Nobles is very challenging academically but teachers are really supportive and will happily meet with you to help you. There is a lot of homework but it is very manageable. The campus is stunning especially the historic castle where we eat lunch which was renovated to be completely eco-friendly. Morning assembly is a great way to start the day in a non-academic way and see kids from all different grades performing and making announcements about clubs activities community service and trips. The arts center and dance studio are gorgeous and the newest part of campus and there is a professional art gallery that brings in different artists. Athletics are very strong across the board but perhaps a bit overhyped. However there are some incredible athletes that get recruited to top colleges and all the varsity teams will win or be ranked in some New England or national championship and in the ISL. The school does have a lot of privileged kids but it works hard to create awareness for different backgrounds and bring in minority or lower class students. There is not really one "typical Nobles kid" because everyone's interests vary so much from arts to music to theater to sports.

    This school is extremely overrated and overhyped. From day one in the interview group interviews show the school's lack of interest in individuals. Students are really rich and arrogant. Every student has the top-notch materials from home and as time progresses having the best things becomes a competition. Girls really succeed in this environment but the boys are left going to the second hand schools. All the athletic awards are won by the girls and al the classes are girl-led. The only good things about Noble and Greenough are the food and the campus.

    Amazing school. challenging but fun none the less. You need to be the type of person who is willing to work hard to be satisfied but the hard work really does reward you in the end. Many nobles graduates have gone to great schools such as Harvard Yale MIT etc. Really recommend applying.

    Incredibly snobby students and parents. Teachers are good but the head of the school is self-absorbed and makes no attempt to get to know the students. He's a traditional "cranky headmaster" as is his equally grouchy wife. They should not be working with kids. Campus is pretty and food is good.

    This is an excellent school that has been supportive of my son and pushed him academically to achieve. He has had the opportunity to try new activities such as pottery cross country running and public speaking. I like to think of the school staff as another family member looking out for the best for my child.

    one of the top school where a student can easily get to know everyone (not just his/her grade) yet big enough school that offers extensive programs in sports and performing arts. outstanding faculty of immense passion about teaching and helping students. excellent facilities on a beautiful campus with both modern and historical buildings.

    Noble and Greenough School was an excellent college prep school that provided me with many opportunities to pursue educational and extra curricular opportunities while supporting me with guidence to help achieve my collegiate goals. The advisory process and support from the faculty is some of the best in the world and I felt completely prepared as I stepped into the next phase of my education at Boston College.
