U.S. News and World Report recently released their annual rankings of high schools across the country. Noble schools were prominently featured in the rankings, here are a few highlights:

  • Our Noble Street campus was ranked #25 in the entire state of Illinois among all schools, and Noble campuses were 5 of the top 50 ranked schools 
  • Noble schools hold all top 8 slots for charter high schools in Chicago and all 16 Noble campuses eligible for rankings were in the top 30 
  • Noble campuses represented 9 of the top 100 high schools in the entire state of Illinois (out of more than 800 total high schools ranked)
  • Within CPS, test-in selective enrollment schools led the rankings, when looking at schools that are open to all students, Noble campuses were 8 of the top 15

“While we know rankings aren’t the end all be all measure of a school and no ranking can ever capture the full depth and power of a well-rounded education, we’re proud of the work of our students, families and staff that is recognized in these rankings,” said Ellen Metz, Noble’s Head of Schools.

These rankings follow on the rankings last year from Chicago Magazine, as well as the annual school quality rankings released by CPS.

U.S. News factors in college readiness, math and reading proficiency, math and reading performance, underserved student performance, college curriculum breadth, and graduation rates.

“While we know rankings aren’t the end all be all measure of a school and no ranking can ever capture the full depth and power of a well-rounded education, we’re proud of the work of our students, families and staff that is recognized in these rankings.”
