Mr. Yaracs, AP and IB Biology Teacher “I was going to be a researcher in the sciences, but quickly found out that lab research wasn’t for me, and that I enjoyed working and teaching high school aged kids. I believe my fascination with the natural world and the enjoyment I get when students make their own discoveries is a great joy and contributes to their success. I love teaching students how complex biological systems work and make connections with this knowledge in their everyday life.”
Alexis Franklin, Alumni Class of 2013 “NCP contributed to my success by placing me in a learning community where I was able to practice my goals of being a social worker and teaching artist. After college I plan to further develop my nonprofit organization and create a recreation center for arts in urban neighborhoods.”
Donnay Terrell, Current 12th Grade Student “NCP has helped me become a more motivated and open-minded student. Academically, I am challenged to go above and beyond what is expected. Most importantly, NCP means family. I did not always have a warm home environment. NCP provided what I lacked at home. Administration and teachers constantly check in with me to make sure I have all that I need to be successful. I plan to attend a 4-year college and pharmacy school to become a pharmacist.”
