Practices that Make Great Leaders Great

Positive Leaders Pursue Excellence - Some think that positive leaders are just about having fun and don't care about winning. This couldn't be further from the truth. Positive leaders are very competitive. They pursue excellence, build greatness and often try to accomplish the impossible. You don’t have to choose between positivity and winning. Positivity leads to winning.

Mr. Fisher and other NP principals working on completing the AQuESTT - Accountability of a Quality Education System Today and Tomorrow system.

It integrates components of accountability, including performance on state assessments and graduation, school and district accreditation, college and career ready education, and the effective use of data into a system of school improvement and support.

Great Principals Build Greatness

A great school has a building principal that earns the respect of students, parents, and staff with a clear purpose, high expectations, and the knack to help others succeed. The NP principals understand the people they work with, and are motivated to create a positive attitude throughout the school & build greatness.

Great Schools & Great Students

A great school has students who like what they do each day and are motivated to achieve their goals. All the NP schools have students who have different abilities, needs, and ambitions. To successfully teach all students, the NP staff understands every student is different. The teaching and interactions with students reflect an understanding of each individual student needs.
