150 Years of Excellence.
Individual school houses have existed in Noblesville as far back as 1820, but the district of Noblesville Schools was born in 1869 with the formation of a school board and the hiring of the first superintendent. The community’s goal at the time was building the first high school and “inaugurating a system of graded schools” in Noblesville.
While a lot has changed about Noblesville Schools over the last 150 years, the district’s pursuit of academic excellence and love for its students have been constants.
To commemorate 150 years of excellence, Noblesville Schools has partnered with multiple community organizations to plan a yearlong, community-wide celebration honoring the district’s history and impact.
Planning is currently in the works for 150th festivities that will kick off in July 2019 and be celebrated during the 2019-2020 school year. These festivities are expected to include themed events across the community, anniversary dedications, the honoring of select individuals as “Noble Millers” for their exceptional commitment to Noblesville Schools, historical exhibits, an anniversary song, throwback spirit wear, a commemorative coffee table book, product tie-ins at local businesses and more.
Church Church Hittle + Antrim is the presenting sponsor of the 150th anniversary and Noblesville Schools has partnered with multiple community organizations to plan and execute the effort, including forming an executive committee with representatives from the City of Noblesville, Noblesville Chamber of Commerce, Conner Prairie, Hamilton East Public Library, Nickel Plate Arts, Noblesville Main Street, NHS Alumni Association, Noblesville Education Foundation, and the Hamilton County Historical Society.
Noblesville residents of all ages will find this once-in-a-generation milestone an opportunity to reminisce about school days gone by and to make new memories with Noblesville Schools.
This website will be updated throughout the year as event and activity plans are finalized.
