Join Noble Today to provide students with a high-quality education that will prepare them for success in high school, college, and beyond.
Here, you will be part of Chicago’s largest and highest-performing network of charter schools.
A diverse workforce is critical to ensuring our students receive the best education possible. That is why Noble has put a premium on nurturing an inclusive culture where employees with wide-ranging backgrounds and qualities are engaged and connected.
Noble was founded on many of the same entrepreneurial principles that have built successful businesses—strong leadership, meaningful use of data, and a high degree of accountability. With longer class periods, a longer school day, and a longer school year, Noble provides students with substantially more instructional time than the traditional Chicago public high school. This extra time, combined with a disciplined, consistent school culture, high expectations, and a team of dedicated teachers, results in dramatically improved academic performance.
Because success is the only option for our students, we operate on culture of high expectations - for academics, for behavior, and for our students' futures. We know that college is crucial for future success, so everything we do is to prepare our students for that next step. Academic rigor is the norm and discipline and accountability are a part of daily life for students. We believe that by 'sweating the small stuff' and pushing our students to reach their full potential, we are building the skills, knowledge, and behaviors needed to be successful in college and in life.
We know the biggest predictor of our students' academic success is the quality of the adults in the building. That's why we work tirelessly to recruit, hire, and support the best educators in the country. And we know they work tirelessly to ensure that every student has the resources they need to be successful. We give our teachers the freedom to innovate in the classroom, access to transparent data so they can analyze their performance, and we compensate our teachers and school leaders for results. This is why our schools rank as the top performing high schools in Chicago on ACT scores and academic gains.
Our commitment to students’ success extends through college. Alumni Coordinators at each campus provide academic and financial aid advising and workshops, mentoring, networking and counseling for alumni as they adjust to college life.
Through the Summer of a Lifetime program, low-income, minority scholars of the Noble Network are provided funding and support to participate in life-changing, summer academic enrichment programs on college campuses nationwide.
Summer of a Lifetime founder, Michael Milkie, and a Hansberry Summer of a Lifetime participant appear on Fox Chicago to speak about the program and its impact on our students. Watch here:
I have been working at Noble Network of Charter Schools full-time
At Noble, I immediately felt like I was part of the team, embraced with open arms. I felt cared about in my capacity as a teacher of our students for the good of their success, but also as a human myself, on a personal level, and I cannot stress enough how much that has meant to me and how it has positively effected my work experience. Noble also has unbelievable support systems, and each student's experience is carefully considered by a team of people who specialize in each aspect of school life. Noble hires incredible people, then has amazing opportunities for those people to grow in their role, as well as to branch out into other roles in the school and network as well.
Everyone at Noble is extraordinarily committed to our kids, our school, and our network. Along with this comes a commitment to personal growth and to putting in the time it takes to best serve our students.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Noble Network of Charter Schools.
First, I had a 20-30 minute phone interview with the principal. The principal was driving a car and seemed distracted.
The school then flew me out for a demo lesson. The entire process was super chaotic. I didn't actually receive the correct instructions for my lesson (content area, skills to teach, etc. ) from the school until late the night before my morning interview.
After the sample lesson, we debriefed.
I received a job offer shortly after the interview, but I declined based on how unorganized the principal seemed.
