The Mission of Northside College Preparatory High School is:

To create a responsive environment that challenges all to embrace the joy of discovery, nurtures learners as they strive to fulfill their individual and collective potential, and  empowers students to pursue their roles in the local and global communities.

We value ENGAGEMENT and believe...
  • learners thrive most when they value and relish the learning of the moment, in and for itself, not simply as a means to a later goal.
  • every person is a learner and a teacher who constructs meaning and understanding.
  • reflection on both failure and success is necessary for growth.

We value ETHICS and believe...
  • ethical behavior underlies each individual’s endeavors, and self-respect is built upon achievement and integrity.
  • individuals enrich the democratic values and practices of the society in which they live.
  • all must accept the challenge to share their gifts with others for the betterment of the world in which they live.

We value CURIOSITY and believe...
  • creative exploration and expression foster curiosity and deeper understanding.
  • student inquiry and interests influence educational experiences in and out of the classroom.
  • it is important to recognize experiences beyond the school walls and celebrate them as powerful drivers of learning.

We value COLLABORATION and believe...
  • people grow and learn through challenging themselves and collaborating with others.
  • people share credit and take responsibility for their work.
  • students, parents, teachers, administrators, and community leaders create and sustain a nurturing learning environment.

We value EMPATHY and believe...
  • a meaningful education balances academic, social, and emotional needs and experiences.  
  • we all must recognize, understand, and acknowledge different perspectives and experiences and value how they enrich our community.
  • in speech and action we look beyond ourselves and consider our impact on others.
