OUR MISSION

NOCCS is a public charter school dedicated to helping children become thoughtful, informed, and inquisitive citizens.

OUR STORY

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.
