Why Noonan

Noonan Academy maintains an environment that is a catalyst to learning. Not only do we have a teacher to student ratio that will allow the gifted, average, and at-risk student to maximize their potential, we also have various levels of resources available to our students. Our educational diagnostician becomes an educational safety net ensuring that all students achieve a higher level of personal self-sufficiency and success in school and within their community. Once a struggling student has been identified by the teacher, our diagnostician individually plans and systematically monitors accommodations and modifications to support the student’s progress. Her oversight and support enables the teacher to facilitate the student’s successful mastery of grade level skills and concepts.

In addition to identifying and supporting at-risk students, she also identifies the above average and gifted students. Together with parents and staff, she creates a plan to challenge them. No child falls through the cracks at Noonan. Every child deserves the opportunity to reach his or her full potential in a nurturing, safe, and stimulating environment.

Small Classroom Size

In addition to Noonan students going to school an equivalent of 30 additional days per year, the classroom size is relatively half the size on neighboring schools. The student-faculty ratio is among the best in the area at 7:1. The smaller classrooms allow for better learning conditions, personal attention, and increased levels of participation. All of which add to the students’ academic experience.
