For the past four years, the Eli and Edyth Broad Foundation has recognized a high-performing charter school for exemplary academics and student success; 2015 is no different.  This year, the 2015 Broad Prize for Public Charter Schools goes to the Noble Network of Charter Schools in Chicago.  This is the first time the Broad Foundation has awarded a mid-western organization.

The Noble Network is made up of 16 non-selective high schools and one middle school in the metro Chicago area; it serves more than 10,000 students.  The majority of the student population is culturally diverse and from low-income households.  Congratulations to The Noble Network for outstanding gains in school choice and academic achievement!

The Noble Network of Charter Schools is not affiliated with Concept Schools’ Noble Academy in Cleveland.  The Noble and Horizon Science Academies in Ohio have been awarded their share of praise, though, including several National Blue Ribbon School Awards (2009, 2012) and have made the “America’s Best High Schools” list by U.S. New and World Report numerous times.
