School Brochure

Noble Elementary-Middle School provides high-quality, data-driven instruction in a nurturing environment.Our program supports the physical, social, emotional and academic growth of our students with a developmentally appropriate curriculum. As students progress from pre-Kindergarten through middle school, they face increasing challenges designed to prepare them for the rigors of high school, college and the workplace.

The Diplomas Now program features partnerships with Communities in Schools, City Year and Johns Hopkins University, to support students and their families, and ensure that each and every one is on the path toward high school graduation.

Most of our students live in the community, and walk or are transported to school by their parents. Many are second or third generation Noble students. Parental and community involvement enhances our program.

School of the Week: Noble Elementary-Middle School

Posted on January 26, 2015

Home of the Noble Knights!

Stern, structured and straight to the point are just three ways to describe the culture at Noble Elementary-Middle School. Principal Angela Broaden believes it is never too early to instill professionalism in her young scholars.

Noble is a prekindergarten through eighth-grade school located in a beautiful and historic, yet modernized, building where all staff members are focused on providing not only a top-notch education, but also leading by example. Teachers aim to showcase the utmost professionalism to prepare their students for high school and beyond.

Broaden, a 20-year plus Detroit Public Schools veteran educator, became Noble’s leader just over three years ago. The tough-love principal, often referred to as a “master of reorganization and restructure,” brought along her successful strategies to help the school go from an enrollment number of 300 to now nearly 600 students.

“My teaching style is simply to leave all baggage at the door. Here at Noble, we do what we have to do to reach success and we are very confident in what we do,” Broaden explains.

Fifth-grader Taylor Sweeny proudly represents her school by being a Hospitality Leader. Hospitality Leaders are school ambassadors who showcase a high level of respect for teachers, exude positive behavior and maintain exceptional grades.

“My mom raised me to be just like her by getting good grades, respecting my teachers and having good behavior,” Sweeny proudly says.

Perrion Ridley, a fifth-grader and vocal music enthusiast, says that he loves how all of the teachers at Noble support the students and help each one of them understand, complete and advance throughout their coursework.

“Since my teachers respect me, I respect them in return,” Ridley says. “It is important to respect our teachers because they help and encourage us to do our best.”
