Noble and Greenough School History
The Noble's Classical School, known informally as "Nobles," was founded as a boys' day school in 1866 by George Washington Copp Noble. In 1892, James Greenough, mathematics and science teacher, became Mr. Noble's associate. The School changed its name to Noble and Greenough and moved to 97 Beacon Street in Boston. In 1922, it became a Country Day and Boarding School and moved to its present site in Dedham, Mass. With the advent of coeducation in the mid-70s, the student body eventually increased, and currently stands at more than 560.
In 2016, Nobles will celebrate its 150th anniversary. Planning for the celebration is underway to mark this significant event in the school's history.
