Welcome to NCS

Welcome to our school! We believe that parent participation is key to student success; our new website is designed to provide parents with all the information they need to be active participants in their student’s education. You will find that the site works just as well on mobile devices as it does on a desktop so you can find information on the go.

Our Mission & Vision Image

Our Mission & Vision

The mission of the Natomas Charter School's Leading Edge Academy is to prepare middle school students not only for high school but for the challenges of the 21st century. The Leading Edge Academy will enable students to become life-long learners by developing a solid foundation in technology, providing community involvement opportunities, and promoting students' and parents' active participation in the learning process through a hands-on, cross curricular three year program. All students will be held to high academic and behavioral standards and will leave well-equipped with pride, confidence, responsibility, and the knowledge needed to excel beyond the middle school environment.
