Mr. Rutten is a great principal who really cares for the students and so does Mrs. Gorman . My daughter graduated from NP3 in 2011 and was accepted into a great university. She often says that the preparation she received at NP3 from her teachers and her AP classes gave her significant preparation for college.

NP3 is a wonderful small high school. A great alternative to traditional high schools. Class sizes are small. The teachers care about the students and make the learning experience fun. Administrators know every kid. It is a conducive learning environment, where the kids just know that college is the next step. They choose to work their hardest because of the examples set and culture of the school.

"The student population is not always the cream of the crop." Being a current sophomore at Np3 I had to pull this one up and say wahat? If there's anything to boast about in this school it's absolutely the acceptance of all students by all students. The school being so small I'm able to get to know every single person and can assure you they're all friendly people. The only thing I could say this school lacks is a sports program, and without a higher population it's hard to imagine that coming any time soon. Still a great choice for academics, and don't be swayed it's a VERY friendly environment.

My child is a student at NP3 and we have been satisfied with the education programs. The extracurricular activities are lacking and the traditional high school experiences of Homecoming, Prom, etc. are farely nonexistant. A good choice for academics but would compare to traditional public school AP programs. The student population is not always the cream of the crop. There are problem makers and typical public school cliques and concerns. It's a hope for a small school atmosphere with high expectations.

I am an alumni of Natomas Pacific Pathways Prep. The teachers support the students to the fullest, challenge students to be their best, and the administrators devote themselves to see the students thrive. I recommend anyone and everyone to attend this school.

I gave a standing review to this school, from the services of the teachers and administrator, small classes and the experience children have, outside classroom, the made for the children have hands on learning.

I decided to go to Np3 instead of Inderkum High School because of all of the things it promoted - college prep classes, higher expectations, a better student to teacher ratio, etc. However, it really isn't all that it says it is. I am currently in 9th grade, and I feel as if I'm not being challenged at all. I've even asked some of my teachers to give me extra work because the homework and classwork provided is not enough to keep me busy. I want to learn and be a successful person, and I feel that I am not able to do so because of this school.

np3 is the best school in all sacramento

Posted November 21, 2007

I am very impressed with NP3. The teachers seem to care very much whether the students are really learning the material being taught. My daughter is a 9th grade student and seems to really want to strive to do her best, since the teachers take an active interest in the success of their students. I find it to be an excellent college prepatory school.

NP3 is a good school. The class size is very small. There is a good relationship between teachers and students. The teachers keep students busy with homework and midterms. This is a college prep high school.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.
