Natomas Pacific Pathways Prep fosters educational growth and creative thinking. It has consistently won the civic engagement award with regard to student involvement and community awareness. Due to the smaller nature of the school, the environment is more tight knit and students develop better relationships with teachers and faculty. I personally admire many of the qualities that the school embodies, and appreciate the effort made by many of the teachers and staff. No school is perfect and I personally feel that my school has acquired more restrictions than that of the average large public school; however, Np3 still encourages development of independence, responsibility, and college readiness. Thank you for this opportunity!

Natomas Pacific Pathway Prep ,(also known as NP3) stands apart from typical schools seeing how the community is supportive, and close. NP3 has a civil award within the top 3 HS of all California, and high percentages of college/university acceptances. I am confident about my future for I am taught valuable skills and knowledge of what's next and how to help our community. I feel safe and free to be myself without being judge or humiliated. I believe that my achievements at NP3 are incomparable if I were to attend a public school instead. Teachers and administration deeply invest their time to ensure that everyone's succeeding. The diversity from NP3 has been a factor to why students are open-minded, respectful and educated about cultures. We meet our goals, academically and socially. We pride ourselves in being hardworking, professional, and push for change. NP3 deserves recognition!
NP3 was a great high school! The teachers were always looking out for you and making sure you understood the material and always willing to lend some of their time to help you out when you needed it. The campus has a great friendly environment, where everyone knows everyone since the population is relatively small compared to other high schools, but I find this to be an advantage because you get to be familiar with most of your classmates and develop close bonds. I felt like the curricular really helped prepare me for college and I feel right on track thanks to help of the education I received at NP3.
