NOCCS is a public charter school dedicated to helping children become thoughtful, informed, and inquisitive citizens.
In 2000, a diverse group of parents and educators began meeting in North Oakland to share a dream of starting a new school.
Those founders talked about how they could design a school that respected and nurtured young learners.
They developed NOCCS's 10 Core Principles, which are still at the heart of NOCCS today.
