Professional Development

One thing that makes JCP and Noble unique is our focus on data-driven, continuous improvement.  Four times per year, all Noble instructors come together for "Network PD" following quarterly student assessments.  Instructors meet in small groups organized by grade and subject area to discuss results, share best practices, and strategize for the upcoming quarter.  It is because of this collaborative process that Noble has been able to improve students' academic success as we have expanded.  More smart educators around the table sharing strategies = better student results.
