Meet Our Principal

Dear Noble Parents,

Welcome to the Noble Street family.  We are honored to have you join our community.

Our highest priority is your child’s success, and we are committed to the love and high expectations that will lead a life rich with options. We are honored to have your trust and commitment, and we look forward to building a personal relationship with you over the next four years.

Goals and Core Values

In order to accomplish our mission, Noble has set three goals:

  1. We want our students to be college ready
  2. We want Noble Street to be the best place to attend school
  3. We want Noble Street to be the best place to work

If we accomplish these goals, measured by our own benchmarks, we believe our students will be ready to access a life rich with options.  We approach these goals with a values driven mindset, always prioritizing love and high expectations when we make decisions. Specifically, we value relationships, reliability and results, and we share these values with our student body. Building positive relationships, being reliable, and demonstrating hard work through results will provide the foundation to enrich students’ personal, academic, and career goals.

Academic Courses & Electives

Academic Courses & Electives
Noble Street College Prep offers an array of academic courses and electives that help students create a well-rounded profile for when they apply to college and or pursue options after high school. All students are given the chance to rank our elective offerings. As students enter the Upper School (11th and 12th grade), they can also select some of their academic courses based on teacher recommendations. Classes in the Upper School have both juniors and seniors in the same courses. Click below to see a list of courses offered at Noble.

Office Hours
Noble students who have below a 3.0 current unweighted Grade Point Average (GPA) are placed on the Academic Intervention Program (AIP). Students that are on AIP are required to attend one office hour a week (after school 4:10-5:10 PM) to get extra academic support from classroom teachers. All students are welcome to attend office hours, but students that are on AIP are at risk of earning demerits for not attending. All teachers are also available by appointment. Students can work on assignments, complete missed work, and or receive tutoring. Click below to see a list of office hours at Noble.

Noble exposes students to the world of higher education from the time they start high school to the time they graduate to ensure we fulfill our mission of students having access to a life rich with options. Noble provides individualized support in the college process to best fit post-secondary plan for each student. Read below about other ways Noble helps students in their pursuit of higher education.
