Natomas Charter School: Different by Design

Natomas Charter School: Celebrating 20 Years of Educational Excellence!

Welcome to Natomas Charter School

Natomas Charter School (NCS) was approved by the Natomas Unified School District Board of Trustees in the spring of 1993 and began operations in the fall of 1993. From the beginning, Natomas Charter School has sought to provide students and parents with expanded choices in the types of educational opportunities that are available within the public school system. The overall goal of the school's charter is to establish a variety of innovative educational programs that will accommodate its diverse student population. Natomas Charter School provides K-12 students the opportunity to develop unique interests, uncover hidden talents, experience satisfaction in accomplishments, gain a sense of responsibility, and pursue education as a way of life through educational programs tailored to their own specific needs.

NCS Educational Programs have the following elements as established in the charter:

  • High Academic Expectations
  • Active "Real-Life" Learning
  • Parental Involvement
  • Differential Academic Plans
  • Community Involvement
  • Technology Emphasis

The Natomas Charter School shall be nonsectarian in its programs, admissions policies, employment practices and all other operations, shall not charge tuition, and shall not discriminate against any pupil on the basis of ethnicity, national origin, gender or disability.
