    "My son has attended NCPS this year. He is on the autism spectrum, but high functioning and diploma bound. The teachers, administrators, and therapists are truly top notch! They are all special education and general Ed. certified and have always helped my son focus and learn while making him feel loved and appreciated, WOW! The classes average 10-14 students with two teachers per class and about 100 total. They have family events sometimes too (bowling, etc) so that we can all meet each other. I would give the school five stars or more except for the food program. They offer lunch/snacks that also include highly processed (sugar/grain) pseudo-foods. These kids especially need lunches/snacks made from real foods in their natural state ONLY in order to heal their very damaged gut microbiomes which affects their ability to learn. See David Perlmutter's book "Brain Maker" for explanation. If the food program was thus improved, then I would say that Northern California Preparatory School would be ideal to prepare most spectrum kids for the rigors of upper grades in public high school and beyond!"

    "Thank you Ms. Johnson and teachers at NCPS for providing a positive learning environment for my son who is ASD. Life as we knew it fell apart in 7th grade. Our son couldn't function at school - couldn't make it through the day without being physically sick from stress. He didn't attend school for the better part of two years - and we were advised to have him do independent study. Not an acceptable alternative. For us, academics came secondary to having our son at school and with peers on a daily basis.Our son will be graduating soon after having exceptional attendance and grades at NCPS. He takes pride in his school and looks forward to being in the classroom and with his peers. He still has social-emotional goals to tackle, but NCPS has given him the framework to understand his challenges - and tools to work on improving his behavior and responses to the outside world. He's a work-in-progress, like most young men his age.Our son did well on his recent college placement exams. He did a lot of solid learning at NCPS - while homework and courses were carefully structured not to overwhelm students. The future is bright for my son - thanks in large part to NCPS."

    "I graduated from NCPS and stop by every year to tell the staff they were right! I was not the easiest student and always threatened to quit, but the staff never gave up on me. I am in college now and living on my own. I am doing good, but life is challenging. The staff tell you the truth at NCPS and as teens we don't want to hear the truth. Now I am an adult, I want to say thank you to all of the staff at NCPS. They definitely care about you. The Principal is firm but fair, now I understand the reasons why. If you are looking to put your son or daughter in this school, I would tell you it would be a good choice. I learned life lessons in this school besides just the usual subjects. To this day I stop by and see the staff, they are like my other family. Thank you NCPS! Your biggest fan!"

    "NCPS is a VERY restrictive school. You cannot touch any student or teacher in any way. This includes handshakes. Students are supervised by staff at all times, and whenever a student goes as far as the next classroom, it is communicated to the entire school through a walkie talkie. Every single conversation between students is monitored by a staff member. Some staff members are also highly confrontational and will look for fights. The classrooms are the size of shoeboxes, and the teachers do not teach. They assign work and say just do it without directions or details. This school is for kids with behavior issues, so if your child has Asperger's Syndrome or any other learning disability that has to do with academics, he/she will be treated like a student with behavior problems. Students cannot even make friends, because trading phone numbers is forbidden. A portion of the students at NCPS claim they they belong in gangs, thus wearing a plain red shirt or any shirt that has to do with certain cities is forbidden. Also, this is a "therapeutic day program", and students have to get all of their work done to see the "therapists." The Principal just tries to get as many kids as possible."
