What is bold leadership?
Since Nobles was founded as a boys' day school in 1866 by George Washington Copp Noble, the school has benefited from leadership that has been both wise and bold. His successors—and theirs counterparts on the board of trustees—have ensured that school has been fiscally well-managed allowing it the resources to seize opprtunities and effect ambituous transitions such as the move from 97 Beacon Street the 19th century castle we all now know and love.
Since its founding, six heads of school have lead the school with great care and vision: founder George Washington Copp Noble, Charles Wiggins II, Eliot T. Putnam, Edward "Ted" Gleason, Richard H. Baker and Robert P. Henderson, Jr. '76.
In 2016, Nobles will celebrate its 150th anniversary. We will also be planning boldly for the coming century.
