The Noble Network of Charter Schools
Middle School ELA Teacher
Be Noble. Teach ELA at Gary Comer College Prep Middle School.
Gary Comer College Prep Middle School is the only middle school campus of the Noble Network of Charter Schools in Chicago, IL. We opened our doors in the fall of 2011 to a 6th grade class of 65 scholars. Today, we have 300 scholars in grades 6th through 8th. The most important thing to know about our school is that our vision is to “Develop Well-Rounded and Successful College Graduates.” Seeing as how our scholars are only in middle school, our vision may seem a bit presumptuous, but we are 100% certain that each and every one of our scholars is on the road to and through the college of his/her choice.
We are looking for mission-aligned and data-driven teachers who will open the world of writing, literature, and grammar to our students.
