First of all, you’ve got this. High School can feel overwhelming and just when you feel like you are catching up, something changes, is added, taken away, or flipped upside down. No matter, because you have your own personal cheerleading team here at New Millennium Secondary School (NMSS), serving 9-12th grades. Come on over and let us show you some love and help you find your next step. We’re here to encourage you on your academic, college, and career path, guiding you to your bright future.

Stretch Your Mind with Our Flexible Classes

Just because we provide small classes at our amazing public school, doesn’t mean you don’t have flexibility.  When it comes to where you are academically, we offer options at your level. Take an online advanced Spanish class if the beginning classes are too easy. Grab some extra exposure to math concepts, which is easy at NMSS because we offer math support. More repetition and practice in this important subject increases your confidence and mastery. We meet you where you are in math and then double-down to hone your skills. You got this! And we got you! 

While we pride ourselves that (free!) college credits are a graduation requirement at NMSS, our classes are not one shape fits all. We offer online courses in addition to the East LA Community College and Los Angeles Southwest College classes taught on campus. 

Feeling behind or want to move forward? Our Individual Learning Plans (ILPs) track your academic progress so you can get the help you need, whether it’s a refresher, a change in direction, or advancing to the next level.

What Does College Look Like to You?

When it comes to college, where are you? At our tuition-free public school, we pride ourselves on guiding our students through the college process, whether it’s  figuring out where to go, how to go, or planning for it. Don’t know much about applying for college let alone paying for it? NMSS is here to help! We sit down with you and figure out just what you need. We can go through an application question by question, edit essays, explain testing, or recommend options for what you want to do. Come in to our office for some one-on-one financial aid love or check out our college resources online.

Supporting Your Success – It’s the Warrior Way!

Here at our small Gardena high school, we care about academics but we also care just as much about your social-emotional well-being.  We create personalized educations together to give you the tools YOU need to succeed right now.  And!  We love on you in a supportive, nurturing environment at our friendly public high school.

Setting you UP for success is something else NMSS wants to do. Are you a Freshman wondering what high school is all about?
