Natomas Pacific Pathways Prep Reviews
Rating 3.9 out of 5 193 reviews
NP3 is a small school so you can easily find yourself a part of this school community. You're free to express yourself in NP3 and the counselors can give you great advice for your future. NP3 lacks most in its extracurriculars but students here are quite determined and creative so there are many clubs to replace classes like orchestra or school sports teams.
how dare they. First of all, my kid was MUGGED outside the school. He lost all his money that he spent saving up for the past 5 years since he graduated elementary. SECOND OF ALL, not only is the school a pathetic excuse of education, but also causes harm to the students. My kid was relentlessly bullied and beat up, and the school did NOTHING. I would never and I mean NEVER would send my worst enemy here.
Having a small community of students and staff, you can see the effort and care put in by staff. The environment is very inclusive.
Well, I've just started this year and I really like that even during distance learning, they have the same rules and expectations along with the fact that since it's a smaller community, everyone gets help when they need it.
The environment of the school is nice, most students are friendly with each other and it is a small school so everyone knows each other. The teachers are great too and truly care for their students. However the staff are pretty disorganized and rude. having a student there for four years already while interacting with staff, it is quite clear that the counselors and office lady don’t care much for their students. My child also had a bad experience with the counselors and they said it is known that stuff like this happens all the time. When choosing schedules a counselor made them choose classes that were not really beneficial to my child or interests them. It was clear that she only wanted my child to be in there because the class was empty and not a lot of students were choosing it. (ex: AP Seminar) My child is a senior now but it took lots of effort to fight her way through the staff to get the classes she wanted.
The main thing I like about the school is the rigorous courses that you have the opportunity to take as well as the small school aspect which gives you the opportunity to engage with faculty without them being overwhelmed and they do have the ability and time to help you. Unfortunately a lot of the school’s teachers and administrators are not the best. The lack of diversity in the faculty is one aspect but there is also the lack of understanding of cultural components when it comes to the school population. Although it is a “civics-based” education many of the civics taught are from a Eurocentric stand point leading to off the hand comments and different actions that can be perceived as distasteful. The school seemingly tries its best but it would be unfair to say that it is without issues.
I thought my teachers were very enthusiastic to finish off our year virtually. I truly appreciated their effort and supportive nature. The only thing I would complain about is the fact that some of my work seemed unnecessary or bland. Perhaps teachers could find more unique ways to keep students engaged.
Going to a law-based school helped me understand certain aspects in society, such as civil law, that I may have to do deal with in the future. At the same time, the lack of clubs, technology-related classes, and sports made the experience a bit boring some days. Additionally, I hated how the school forced people out of classrooms during lunch when it was first Fridays.
I absolutely love NP3, the environment there is so vibrant and friendly. The teachers there are so genuine and they go above and beyond to help their students succeed. The students at NP3 are extremely well versed in both their academics and social lives, but NP3 could use more diversity within the students.
All classes are prepping students for college. Teachers give students equal attention. No student is overlooked and those you need extra help are always given it if asked for.
Natomas Pacific Pathways Prep is a small school with around ~700 students, with an emphasis on academics. The school has a Dance team, but besides that, no other real sport in school. Despite the lack of Sports on campus, there is a lot do, including joining nationally ranked clubs like the Mock Trial team, and Robotics club, with great teachers and mentors.
Academically, it is a pretty good school, but it does lack in some areas. I think the school would benefit from more arts and languages. Also, the school does not have any sports, so having sports would be a great addition. And also just small things like making sure the teachers that are hired really are the best fit and a cleaner campus.
Natomas pacific pathways prep is an overall great school to go to but lacks in aspects involving sports.
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!
As an abroad student that have been into three different schools, Natomas Pacific Pathways Prep High School is the top one. The school program is very strict but it is a good one. This is the beginning of my second school year in NP3. I’ve learned so much different things that I’ve not seen before. The teachers are really friendly and supportives. Even though it is a small school but the academic isn’t seem so small like the size of it. I really like how the school prepares for the senior students to get ready and to know what they really want to do after high school.
A mini “home away from home”. Lots of diversity and everyone is friendly with one another; nothing but positive attitude
the rules need to be changed, they except to much of the kids and they rebel. they cover up incidents so parents don’t freak out and they don’t want their awards to be taken away even tho they don’t deserve them. Would not recommend if you really want your child to thrive put them in a private school don’t put them here or a public school. They gave more of a chance to not get into drugs or don’t study if they go to a better school a private school so they can focus.
