    Noble is a well diversified school in terms of students teachers and staffs. Noble strikes a good balance between academic and other core competency development. The teachers are very nice easy to communicate responsible diligent and surprisingly talented in different areas such as music. Noble has a very strong and active PTA too.

    As a parent of a third grader and a Kindergardener at Noble Elementary I am happy to say that I am very happy and grateful for our teachers' strong commitment to raise the bar for my kids education. Also I cannot praise enough our Principal Mrs. Ortiz who is always available to answer parents' questions and concerns and who is supported by great school staff. I cannot praise enough Mrs. Diana and Mrs. Cindy our front office staff. They always greet everybody with a big and go out of their way to help. I am also very happy to see that our school runs great programs like Project Cornerstone parents' workshops on safety education and nutrition. It takes a village to raise our children and Noble Elementary is the heart of our strong community.

    My older daughter just started Kindergarten here this year and we love it! The teachers and staff are amazing and we have a very invested PTA. Noble offers many opportunities not found at other schools. I can't wait to see what this year holds!

    Noble rocks! Great school teachers administrators and staff! I love that the school has its own garden and that the kids can pick and snack from it. Definitely a great place!

    We moved from Texas to California in 2010 in the middle of the school year and found the schools zoned to us Ruskin as well as majestic were both full. My daughter had the option of going to Noble and then transferring after a year.By the end of the year she did not want to move to Majestic. She was very comfortable at Noble and the teachers were great. The PTA president as well as the Principal were also very involved with kids at the school. My daughter had mrs Dalal and mr.blaine in 3rd grade. Both are fabulous teachers. Coming from a blue ribbon school in Texas I am disappointed in the overall school system in California but we are very happy at Noble. It is also necessary for the parents to be actively involved in their child's school.

    Noble Elementary is a wonderful school. My daughter is thriving there. The teachers care very much about their students. The parents at our school are very involved. We have worked very hard in the last couple of years to bring the whole community together and it shows in increased turnout at community events!

    Noble Elementary has a fantastic PPP (Parent Participation Program) and very active parents. The parents have stepped in to add a garden as well as a very unique Green program that has won awards and grants for the school. The teachers are patient involved and engaged with the kids and parents. Unfortunately there has been a new principal every two years. Hopefully that will change!

    This school is average nothing special as some has exaggerated. I have moved to a better school and could see a great difference between a real good school and a average one.

    You won't know how little your children are learning until you moved to a better school . That's what I did and both my chiildren now had better classmates and teachers.

    The person who said Noble is horrible is totally wrong. I believe the yard duties are fine. It is a fine school with many activities that will help the children socially. I highly recommend this school.

    My child has been at Noble for 5 years. This is one of the BEST in the district. Highly recommend. It's also adjacent to Noble Park and Noble Public Library which is very convenient for homework projects.

    Noble is a good school; nice teachers nice students and it locates in a very peaceful and quiet neighborhood. My child loves this school and her teacher. Only little one thing I concern is my child have so little of homework I wonder if that will put an effect on school' API and student's learning/development in the future although my child is currently doing great with her grades. Beside that everything of Noble is very positive. We are proud Noble Elem. parents.

    This school is horrible. My son has had a bad experience. The yard duties are bad many parents have made complaints to the principal and he has not taken any action. I will not be sending my son here next year!

    Noble is a wonderful school. My daughter and son loves attending Noble. The school has a very warm and caring environment. The teachers are all very dedicated to the students and the parent involvement really make Noble an excellent place for a child to learn. My daughter who is currently in the 5th grade in Mrs. Ford's class loves it. My son is in Mrs. McCelland's class. We switched from private school to public school this year and what a waste of money. They are getting so much more here at Noble. Thank you teachers.

    My daughter started kindergarten 3 weeks ago. So far we have been very pleased with the teacher involvement her initial assessment and the time structure. We also like the option of early vs late bird. We highly recommend noble school.

    My daughter's experience at Noble has been very positive. She enjoys school and her peers everyday. I have been very impressed with all of her teachers dedication and training. There is more to an education than an API score. Noble values a well rounded child. I appreciate knowing she is receiving the best education available near her home.
