Noble and Greenough School is a rigorous academic community dedicated to inspiring leadership for the public good. Through mentoring relationships, we motivate students to achieve their highest potential and to lead lives characterized by service to others.
The Nobles community:
Generates critical, creative, socially conscious thinkers;
Upholds a commitment to diversity;
Develops character and intellect in deliberate conjunction;
Cultivates purposeful citizenship on local, national and global levels;
Builds independence and self-respect through challenge and achievement;
Espouses humility, humor, collaboration, honesty and respect for others as the foundations of a vibrant intellectual community.
Our teaching philosophy centers on helping students develop critical-thinking skills. Students graduate from Nobles with an impressive knowledge of subject matter, of course —they also learn the art of analysis; how to solve complex problems; and how to lead, follow and collaborate. Working with teachers they know well and trust, Nobles students learn the importance of patience, process, and persistence as they pursue academic and other achievements.
