The first graduating class at NLCP sent an extremely small percentage of their students to colleges. More than 75% of those who initially enrolled in colleges and universities, dropped out after only their first year. That is because they went in unprepared and nearly educationally incompetent as a result of the "education" they received at their neighborhood high school.
A very small group remained in college, but even they struggled initially being unprepared. The school offered a variety of amenities to their students that never materialized. Children walked away disappointed and a significant number even dropped out well before completing the program.
NLCP is not a school that I would recommend to anyone whom I Know and love.
CONS: Poor Administration, Poor Curriculum, Poor Culture

Hyde Park Produce is sandwiched between Pepe's Taco's and CVS Pharmacy, but it manages to stand out. An extremely small local grocer, Hyde Park Produce has a wonderful selection of very fresh produce and an array of healthy choices for all consumers. No need to travel all the way up North to the larger produce palaces or to ultra expensive health food stores for what you can get at a fraction of the price and, often, better quality at the Hyde Park Produce.
The employees are wonderful and helpful and the customers are familiar. It's almost as if you have just stepped into the local store that your parents shopped at when you were a kid. This wonderful little store is perfectly centered toward the end of Hyde Park's commercial center 53rd Street and hangs in and out with all of the surrounding "big boys."
