About Our School
We are pleased to share with you this School Accountability Report Card (SARC) which measures how we are doing in the implementation of our program goals and objectives. We ask that you read this report and feel free to contact the school with any questions you may have.
William Northrup School’s Vision Statement reads as follows: Northrup Staff will support our students by providing opportunities for them to become global thinkers, be college and career ready, and continue to develop a Growth Mindset.
Northrup Staff are committed to HOPE:
- Having and Developing Growth Mindsets
- Opportunity for student achievement
- Equity- and acknowledging diversity
With that commitment in mind, the primary task of our school year is to carry out and evaluate the program goals set forth by our Comprehensive School Plan for Student Achievement to ensure the success for all students. We will continue to increase student achievement through standards-based instruction and application of best instructional teaching practices.
Our teachers continue to receive professional development on the implementation of Core State Standards (CSS). Our staff believes that the implementation of CSS will help us develop 21st Century Learners as we promote a schoolwide college-going culture.
Northrup School’s GO, CCR (Greater Outcomes for College and Career Readiness) Model is the first of its kind in the Alhambra Unified School District. Our model program is based on three of our district LCAP Goals referenced in Goal 2: The District will provide an equitable, quality, and rigorous education for each child. These actions and services expand and enhance our instructional efforts in closing the Hispanic achievement gap, and directly support our school Long Term English Language Learners (LTEL) population. LCAP goal G2.A8 directly connects with our Model Program because it links 6th-8th grade students with higher education pathways and community partners in order to support student success.
Northrup is in our ninth year of Tier I Strategic Teaming, meeting the reading needs of all of our students. We are in our fourth year of Tier II interventions, addressing the needs of our targeted students to ensure that they master grade level content standards. We provide Tier III intensive interventions for qualifying 4th-8th graders. Extensive time has been given to teachers this year to meet collaboratively to analyze student data, reflect on instruction, and plan effective CSS units of study and lessons to meet student needs.
Northrup continues to offer many activities that support the instructional program, including Title I services and parent education workshops. In addition, Northrup works closely with several agencies from various communities to further enhance the educational environment. Northrup is continuing to update the caliber of its technology program with the addition of our classroom set of Chromebook carts, iPads, computer labs, and by providing classrooms and school office with comprehensive computer access to the internet, and purchasing additional software and equipment, along with providing staff development opportunities.
The parents of Northrup School students continue to be active in our school program by participating in parent workshops with teachers, and by volunteering in the classroom.
We invite you to become a partner in education and welcome your attendance and participation at all school functions. We believe that parental involvement is crucial to a student’s academic success.
