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 (Less than a year)
There is a positive energy at the Noble Schools. I walk into work with a smile everyday. Teachers do not become complacent and always strive to get better. Administration is on your side and supports your decisions if they benefit the school. Students are held accountable for their actions. Clear, consistent consequences allow you to teach your whole lesson. Discipline is at the foundation of a Noble education.
These are not magnet schools. Our students come to us several years behind their affluent counterparts. You will have to work hard to overcome the achievement gap.
Advice to Management
Stop into classrooms periodically and teach a lesson or two on topics you are passionate about. Allow teachers to observe your feedback in action.
I applied in-person. I interviewed at Noble Network of Charter Schools (Chicago, IL) in April 2017.
The interviews was informational and transparent for the role. It was also a speedy turnover to get processed into the new role. Although at sometimes, I felt the role was undermined with its description, almost undervalued, In fact, there is a lot that is expected of administrative assistants.
