The Noble Network of Charter Schools (formerly known as Noble Street Charter School) is an open enrollment, multi-campus charter public high school serving students throughout Chicago. Noble was cofounded in 1999[1] through a partnership between Ron Manderschied, President of Northwestern University Settlement House, Michael Milkie,[2] and Tonya Hernandez Milkie. Noble's vision is to be America’s best high school network serving low-income students, preparing more than 5,000 of its alumni to graduate from college by the year 2020. Noble seeks to create constructive change in the communities it serves and close the opportunity gap nationwide. Noble's theory of change is that providing low-income students with a world-class education and helping them to graduate college will positively impact their lives, families and communities for generations to come.

The Noble Network enjoys an overall college matriculation rate of 90%. In 2014, Noble students had the highest ACT scores among Chicago open enrollment schools and received more Posse Scholarships than any private or selective enrollment school. Noble's mission is to instill in students the scholarship, discipline and honor necessary to succeed in college and beyond. Noble was also named the "4th Most Change-Making High School in the Nation" by The Daily Beast.[3]
