The environment at Natomas Charter School is truly like no other. I have the opportunity to integrate my love for art in dance, vocal, and visual arts with my academics. All of the students and teachers are very supportive and open minded. Everything at this school truly has a meaningful purpose, from the academic curriculum, extra curricular opportunities, and so much more! Attending Natomas Charter School is one of the best choices I have ever made.

Natomas Charter School has a population of around four hundred high school students. This allows the relationships between the students and the teachers to become more intimate and meaningful where each person recognizes every face on campus. The school also focuses on arts which allows students to explore an art form and progress through the levels throughout their four years. However, the schools academics are limited regarding mathematics and science. As a student intrigued in mathematics and science, I felt limited on what I could learn and explore. Offering only three science classes and only two Advance Placement math classes. After completing all of them in my junior year, I had to reside to classes outside of the school. Natomas Charter Schools prides themselves in their diversity and strength in unity, but lack the academics to allow their students to excel in certain subjects.
Natomas Charter School is a fantastic school. Their focus on the arts creates such an interesting learning environment for students to incorporate arts into their academics. The school provides so many wonderful opportunities for students to learn and grow in their art of interest like, musicals, plays, art walks, and various classes. I have found that my years at Natomas Charter School has helped me develop a new found respect for Musical Theatre. By taking dance, vocal, and acting classes at Natomas Charter, I have found that Musical Theater is my passion and I will be pursuing Musical Theatre in college. I will be attending Roosevelt University in Chicago as a Musical Theatre and dance major. Getting into such a great school for my interest was all with the support of Natomas Charter School. With caring and helpful teachers for academics and arts, as well as the college counselor who pours her heart into helping each student. I would recommend Natomas Charter to any family.
