NHCS will offer a college-preparatory academic environment, including annual university visits for every student, college prep workshops for parents and students, and a rigorous academic program with an extended school day and school year that prepares our students to meet UC/CSU A-G requirements in high school. In 2019-20, only 30.6% of Twin Rivers Unified School District (TRUSD) high school graduates met A-G requirements, well below County (44.6%) and State (44.3%) averages.
Through our development process over the past two years and extensive discussions with Robla families and community members, a key point of emphasis was access, inclusion and equity for all students, especially English Learners, in participation with electives and all aspects of school life – something which Robla parents said is not available in neighboring middle schools. NHCS will provide a school of and for the unique Robla community whereby the cultural, social, and personal needs of each student will drive and inform the innovative, college-preparatory academic experience. NHCS will foster student-centered learning environments, where teachers maintain high expectations for the learning of rigorous content, differentiate instruction for varied learning styles and varied ability levels, and offer students multiple opportunities and methods to learn and demonstrate their learning.
NHCS will provide all students a rigorous and comprehensive curriculum to foster maximum academic achievement and positive character development in a safe learning environment.
