    Pros

    Noble Charter Schools provides a rigorous curriculum that not only scholars for college but also for their lives after they graduate. As an employee I feel that my opinion is valued and taken into account when decisions are made. Administration is very supportive and transparent.

    Cons

    Curriculum is created by teachers - expect to spend time creating units and assessments.
