Small school, big hearts! All the ways NMSS students thrive.

The choice of where to send your student to school is incredibly important. At New Millennium Secondary School (NMSS), we want to let you know that you have options and we are here to support you in learning all you can to make the right choice for your high schooler. As a free, public, small and safe school, we deliver a top notch education AND a supportive, tight knit school family like no other.

Being small and mighty means that we get to know each other and are more able to lift each other up, ensuring that our hearts are full and every student feels like they matter. All NMSS students know they have a voice that is heard, and they can be who they want to be at school.

Authentic Connections Throughout

At NMSS, we make it easy to connect with any and everyone because we know this is what builds the trust and friendships we need to change the lives of our students for the better. Our school is so small that we decided not to put up any doors in our collective office! Everyone – from the Principal to the Office Administrators – sits together in a shared office space. NMSS students walk in and wave at our Principal on the regular, saying “Navarro – what’s up?” across our small office, and receiving big grins and high-fives every time.

We make time for our students and see the benefits every day. Our hearts grow with every close connection, and this effect rubs off on everyone who walks through our doors!

The NMSS School Family

Students at NMSS thrive because of the layers of support, camaraderie, and positive regard we hold for each other throughout the NMSS family. We get to know the parents and grandparents of our students and check in on each other if we don’t see someone come in the way we are used to seeing them. By getting to know each other, we are more able to pick up on small changes that we might not even see in a larger school environment.

Our teachers are recruited for their expertise, but often they choose us because they know they’re coming to us not just to teach, but also to become the family members of our students themselves. The conversations we have and the way we interact is just so very different than a traditional high school. We all treat our students as if they ARE our kids, and as such, we are dedicated to their success!
