Why Choose Noble

“My daughters come home excited and eager about learning everyday. Because of Noble, my daughters have a quality education and a chance at a bright future.”    -Jacqueline, parent of Gary Comer College Prep Middle School scholars

Noble is a public high school, open to any student who lives in the city of Chicago and has graduated from eighth grade.  There are no testing requirements to get in.  Noble provides students with a safe, challenging and supportive learning environment that will prepare them for success in college and beyond.  We hold high expectations for academics and behavior, and will work tirelessly to ensure that every student reaches their full potential.

Noble is committed to providing students with:

  • A culture of high expectations;
  • A longer school day and longer school year;
  • A calm learning environment, reinforced through discipline and dress codes;
  • Support with college applications and scholarships, and support for our alumni after graduation;
  • Civic engagement through community service; and
  • A variety of enrichment activities and sports.

Because the majority of our graduates are first generation college students, our rigorous college preparatory program prepares students for college and guides them through the application and scholarship processes. Additionally, Noble supports our graduates through college to ensure they stay on track toward earning their college degree.

Parent Engagement

Noble believes that parent involvement and support is essential to students’ success. Noble invites parents/guardians to get involved with the school and familiarize themselves with our policies and procedures. We expect that parents of Noble students will:
  • Attend quarterly parent/student/teacher conferences or when asked by a staff member;
  • Sign and support the parent/teacher/student pledge to make your child’s academic excellence a primary focus for the school year;
  • Participate in the Parent Advisory Council at your campus;
  • Hold your child accountable to Noble’s expectations, which include nightly homework;
  • Read, sign and return the weekly newsletter and expect progress reports every two weeks;
  • Respect Noble’s learning environment by calling students at school only in the event of an emergency.


Noble works to reach out to as many elementary schools and community organizations as possible as we recruit for the coming school year. Our campuses participate in high school fairs and 8th grade classrooms visits to provide students with more information about Noble and our application process. Noble’s admissions process is nonselective and accessible to all, and Noble provides all admission information session materials in Spanish.
