Founded in 1999, Noble Street Charter School has been recognized nationally for its success serving low-income Chicago students. Noble ranks 1st among all CPS high schools for the largest expected gains on the ACT. Over the last 11 years, the Noble model has proven successful: 99% of seniors graduate, 96% of graduates go to college, and 83% of those are the first in their family to do so. Currently, the Noble Network operates 11 high school campuses throughout Chicago and serves over 6,200 students. Noble was also awarded a $10.8 million dollar grant by the U.S. Department of Education to expand five of its campuses and add six new campuses to its network, which will allow Noble to serve over 10,000 Chicago students by 2015.
