The world is a big place filled with endless choices, which is why choosing a small, safe and secure high school for your teen is a great idea. At New Millennium Secondary School (NMSS), we create lasting relationships and strong support for our students to make sure each and every person is recognized, celebrated, and taught to be their best selves.

That’s the magic behind our blue smoke curtain – we keep our school small to make sure we can connect with and help every student.

In small environments like NMSS, good harmony and camaraderie is extremely important. We put great focus on hiring the most talented and experienced teachers while ensuring these instructors personalize their teachings. The beauty of our class sizes helps us teach to the individual students more than a standard school has time for. This also helps us reach the goal of preparing students to compete for educational and occupational advancement.

Like a Breath of Clean, Safe Air

We have each other’s backs at NMSS, and it shows. Our Warrior spirit shines through in the way everyone here is willing to put themselves out there, go the extra mile, and create a community of welcome and safety.

The way we watch out for each other and ourselves is laid out in a clear agreement in our Parent-Student-Staff Compact. It helps us create safety together because it’s all about respect. We treat each other as adults and make agreements based on mutual benefit. We agree to ask for what we need and talk things through when challenges arise.

Our teachers embrace our students and their families. We don’t just see each other every day, we connect with each other every day. Our pillars of character and positive behavioral system (PBIS) help us model our best selves together — enabling security and safety for every NMSS high school student.

Yes, It’s Tuition-Free
