Noblesville Schools epitomizes the U.S. entrepreneurial spirit of the 21st Century. Located in the heartland of America, it successfully blends the best of the old and the new. It has maintained the integrity and work ethic of its historical roots while embracing the entrepreneurial spirit necessary to excel in the complex, global society of the 21st Century. Located in Hamilton County, Indiana, which represents the highest average educational attainment of its citizenry in Indiana (over 60% of its citizens hold college degrees), Noblesville affords its families and citizens economic opportunity and quality of life.
Noblesville, as an evolving community, is an American success story. It has the four elements that experts find contribute to the economic viability in this 21st
Century: highly educated workforce, the dynamism or churn associated with high tech and knowledge-based start up companies generated by the entrepreneurs, access to local research universities conducting research and development, a business climate that supports high tech industries, and desirable environmental factors that contribute to quality of life.
Noblesville Schools is extremely proud of its 93.4% graduation rate, its high Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) average of 1043, and the fact that 90.2% of its graduates go on to pursue a college education. However, the district recognizes that the world is changing rapidly, and that education, too, must change if it is to prepare students to thrive in a global, high tech future that none can predict. Thus, in 2011 the district embarked on a journey to establish a forward-thinking vision for teaching and learning in today’s and tomorrow’s complex, global, high tech society.
