Our daughter is finishing 8th grade and has been encouraged and challenged to step up and do her best. As a parent, I appreciate that all students are expected to take Spanish every year for 6 years (helpful for employment here) and that continuation to college is the main emphasis in planning their overall curriculum. Their athletic departments are not as developed as regular public middle and high schools, however, that is increasing, and the possibility of your child participating is increased due to the size of the school. I have found that any problems or complaints are handled in a very professional manner, and parents are valued and listened to. No school is perfect, but NPP is striving to provide a quality education in a safe environment. I'm so glad we found them when my daughter was entering 7th grade so she can go to this school all 6 years.
I am a parent of two children that attend North Pointe. I used to be pleased with the school, however there is a high turn around in the teachers. My daughter has just got her fourth english teacher this year. The dress could is a good idea except the cheerleaders don't have to follow it, which isn't fair to the other students. I am pulling my children out of this school at the end of this year. Last year the school was organized and the students were treated with dignity and respect something, that the school has a great lack of this year. The favortism is geared towards the cheerleaders. Which is sad because the focus should be on the quality of education, not the cheerleading program. Dissappointment is the only way to discribe North Pointe Prep at this time. I am hoping for a change.
I am a student at North Pointe Prep and I love it there! My parents thought about putting me in a school closer to home but at North Pointe I have great friends and teachers who care so I talked them out of it! I don't have to worry about fights or drugs at school anymore.
I am one of those so called 'bitter parents'. Anyone who looks at the test scores will see this school is not what it claimed to be when I enrolled my son. The smarest thing I ever did was take him out before it was too late.
NPP was a great school! My daughter loved it very much, but unfortuneatly our family moved and she was not able to attend NPP any longer. Now she is not doing as well in school because she doesn't like it anywhere near how much she liked North Pointe. Sending her was the best thing I had done and to the parents that say 'cheerleaders' get special benefits, no they don't. My daughter was a cheerleader and she had no special benefits, she got treated like any other student did. I think the Teachers and Staff are awesome at this school, Ms. Santangelo, Senora Rogers Mr. and Mrs. Davenport and Mr. Raso are all great and very good with all the students! If you want your child to have a good education with great teachers you should send them to NPP because the only mistake i evr made was having her leave that school!
NPP has great goals and the ability to help the kids achieve them. There have been some teacher switching but all and all I believe the teachers care about the kids, my daughter loves the school (and she is not a cheerleader) and is doing alot better here than at a public school. Her self esteem is up, her grades are high b's and the family is happy!
After reading some of the input from August and September, I couldn't help but give my two cents. North Pointe Preparatory is an awesome school! My son is getting an awesome education (Stanford scores in the 99th percentile). Don't dismiss this school because of a couple of bitter parents. If you are interested in a college prep education for your child, check it out for yourself. My son loves it there. He has great friends and great teachers. I wouldn't send him anywhere else.
This school is one of the worst charter schools in Phoenix, Arizona. As much as I hate admitting this, it is the plain truth. When I attended, I went through at least 15+ teacher switches. The students were left with nothing but a slight idea of why their teachers deserted them. The office staff was of little assistance to the students and to the parents. All in all, the quality of this charter school is terrible.
We are very pleased with this school but would like to see more parent involvement and more club options for students. The teachers are great and work very hard. Dean Johnson is beyond excellent in her ability to deal with a constantly changing environment.
Our son has been attending North Pointe Prep for its two years that it has been open. We love the focus on high academics, character education and consistent discipline. Dean Johnson and Chancellor Davenport provide a top notch curriculum that we would have to pay thousands of dollars for back East. North Pointe Prep is a wonderful, safe environment for those preparing for college.
Great School! I would not send my students anywhere else. We love the administration and teachers.
