by Amanda Carter, Head of School This year, Noble Academy’s Spring Break falls in the last full week of April. In my nine years working in Independent Schools this is the latest the break has ever been. I have friends in other schools spending this week at Disney, somewhere in the Caribbean, or binge watching Netflix. I won’t lie to you, it’s painful to see their pictures on social media and know that our vacation from school is still almost four weeks away. The origins of the modern day Spring Break can be attributed to college swim teams traveling to Fort Lauderdale to do early training for ..read more

By Aimee Gandee, Director of Educational Outreach (published on Oct. 25, 2022) Schools are all abuzz with what appears to be the latest in teaching students how to read. Maybe you’ve heard of it?

The truth is, The Science of Reading has been around for quite some time. It isn’t a new program being implemented in your child’s classroom/school. It isn’t even a reading program. The SoR is the collective body of research that help ..read more

By Amanda Carter, Head of School What to expect at the beginning of a Noble Academy school year? It is a great question, as so many of our families are new or some are like me and struggle to remember from one year to the next. I feel like each year, with my own child, I have to relearn the cadence of the school year, reset the expectations at home, and re-remember the nuts and bolts of school. It also always sneaks up on me and I feel like I’m in a tornado in the two days leading up to the first day. But, that might just be me. At Noble Academy the new year can be so different for our famili ..read more

By Aimee Gandee, Director of Educational Outreach (published Jan. 26, 2021) “The student fell through the cracks.” “He was moved through the system without ever addressing the problem.” “She is in 8th grade now, but never really learned how to read.” As an educator of students with learning differences these are statements that I hear often. As a trainer of teachers on how to educate students with language based learning disabilities and dyslexia, it is frustrating, heartbreaking to hear, and also completely preventable. In its simplest form, early intervention is just that – intervening early ..read more
