About Noble

Noble’s mission is to ensure that all students have equitable and positive school experiences that equip them to complete college and lead choice-filled lives. Noble serves more than 12,000 students and 23,000 alumni across 17 open-enrollment, free, public charter schools in Chicago. We are proud to be recognized nationally for college access and persistence. 98% of our graduates are accepted into college and the graduating Class of 2023 earned over $632 million in college scholarships.

At Noble “antiracism” isn’t a buzzword. We have made significant policy and structural changes to demonstrate our commitment to anti-racism and fighting the systemic inequities in the communities we serve. These changes include building curricula that welcomes and affirms each student’s unique identity, and ensuring that all our community members – including students, families, and staff – have the space to be their authentic selves, ensuring that their voices are heard. Join Noble in supporting the growth of our students, staff and communities!

Clear, Consistent and Connected
All staff at Noble are bound by three key principles that shape a strong and positive campus culture at Noble.

Clear, Setting Clear Expectations: Students, like all individuals, flourish when they have a clear understanding of boundaries and expectations. All Noble Schools staff should prepare and explain academic and behavioral expectations using easy-to-understand procedures, routines, and “what to do” directions in all spaces.

Consistent, Maintaining Consistency in Responses: Students experience a spectrum of emotions. While all emotions are valid, not all behaviors are productive. Consistency in how these behaviors are addressed helps to ensure fairness and provides students with the security of knowing that our campuses operate with a sense of justice and equity.

Connected, Building Positive Relationships: Students, like all individuals, thrive when they feel a communal connection to their school and can rely on meaningful relationships with the adults at the school. All Noble staff prioritize positive interactions and relationships rooted in the humanity and belonging of each student.
