NP3 is an amazing program with great teachers who are passionate about teaching! There really is such a thing as no child left behind. NP3 has intervention times for students who are struggling, and get the tutoring help they need to successfully help the student pass their classes. Students also have advisory teachers who not only are the liaison for communication between parents and teachers, but really know the student and do their best to help the student succeed. I have children in both the middle school and high school and I can't be more pleased with the level of education my children are receiving. Everyone on staff is always readily available and accessible, and even if I do have concerns, I know I can get the answers I need. I know there is always room for improvement, and I feel that the staff here always strive for excellence and I appreciate their efforts. I know I made the best decision for my children to have them attend NP3.
i kinda wished that we had a music program with a music teacher but other wise i feel there is too much work to be honest it pile up i meen im staying up all night doing a days worth of homework
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.
i love np3 it rocks the teachers are very nice. it is a good school. the school is very nice and the compus is a safe one. the school is very vey very veyr nice
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.
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.
