WELCOME  TO  NOCCS

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.

Our Core Principles

  1. Respect for Children and their Learning

  2. High Expectations
