Open Quote Ndp is not what u think it is, trust me. This school makes kids miserable. There is a large work load every night, it is mainly busy work that doesn’t benefit you in any way.

YOU WILL BE ASKED TO TAKE MORE CREDITS THAN needed in coursework that has no value created by NDP FOR the Phoenix diocese
Many of the teachers do not care about their students(few exceptions). The administration poorly coordinates “fun” events which no one enjoys. Not inclusive!!! faculty/staff consistently abuse their “power” and punish kids for minor infractions such as chewing gum, shaving, and having their shirt untucked. In which all of these would result in a detention. What a joke. All it seemed the faculty cared about was busting a student and not teaching or caring for them. TRUST ME SAVE YOUR MONEY AND DON’T SEND YOUR KID HERE!!!!!

tuition loss is nothing in compared to the toxic emotional abuse by students and staff.
Damages of the exposure to relentless judging, religious ideals with no dialogue boxing kids into a corner is unspeakable

If you aren’t 100 aligned with inconsistent views, do not send your child to NDP.

education is not elite
Wasted time on courses with no value or core principles - theology taught by inexperienced substitutes transforming their own lives, with no idea the impact they have - this year the students were told they would receive extra service hours for praying in front of an abortion clinic.. as freshman this is too much..
Ways you can verify info
look up the teachers credentials, in Arizona education license - check the number of open positions at this school and even check how the corporate structure of this non profit organization is managed.
All checks are signed by Julie platt yet Jill platt is listed on registration?
In 2020 Ndp recd almost 2 million in PPP funding and didn’t pay back .. at the same time built a performing arts center .. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio

Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
