Welcome to the Noble Network of Charter Schools - Chicago's largest and highest performing high school network

For more than a decade, Noble has delivered an outstanding public education to low-income high school students in Chicago.  Noble's founders were former Chicago public high school teachers who believed their students could reach higher levels of academic achievement and discipline, and they committed themselves to creating a better kind of school.  From day one, Noble students attend a longer school day and year, develop high expectations for themselves and their classmates, and model the scholarship, discipline, and honor necessary to achieve success in college and beyond. 

With more than 3,000 students on a wait list, Noble is committed to continued expansion so that any student seeking to attend a Noble school will have that right.  Noble will build the capacity to enroll more than 10,000 students at sixteen campuses across Chicago, serving at least 10% of the Chicago Public Schools' high school population.  Noble is proving that students, regardless of background, can achieve high levels of academic success.  By its example, Noble will transform urban education in Chicago and across the country.  We invite you to learn more about the Noble movement.
