The school’s vision of creating an educational alternative that fosters the healthy growth and development of the whole child, gives equal emphasis to a solid academic program, artistic expression, and social/emotional development. This ideal is brought to vivid life on a daily basis at the Novato Charter School.
As a public school, NCS is expected to adopt California’s educational standards and to participate in Standardized Testing and Reporting (STAR). The artful integration of State adopted educational standards into the school’s curriculum has resulted in a 168-point gain in the Academic Performing Index (API) since 2003 while creating a vibrant and stimulating environment that not only engages, but improves student attention and develops a life-long passion for learning.
