In this competitive 21st century, everything changes at a rapid pace and will most likely continue to do so. This is one of the top reasons that here at New Millennium Secondary School (NMSS), we are so student-centered that it is literally in our DNA.

Every generation changes and shifts just as rapidly as the world around us and so it is incredibly important to keep our students at the center and core of every decision we make. From the way we run our classes to the types of clubs and activities we set up to keep our students engaged and having fun while they learn – we are student-centered in everything we do.

Personalized and Relevant Education

Every individual learns a little differently, and at NMSS, we pay attention to everyone and take time to make it personal. By connecting with each other and not only keeping our curriculum relevant, but ensuring we draw academic subjects and connections back to our community and daily lives together, we are keeping it real. This makes schooling so much more than getting a diploma – it is how we are preparing students to become life-long learners and dynamic leaders in the competitive 21st century.

We offer personalized education for every 9th -12th grade high school student who enters our doors. No one gets lost in the cracks at our safe, small, nurturing public charter school.

Making the Future Real Today

How many people really know what they want to do after high school? It’s not usually a simple answer, and so at NMSS, we support our students to explore and experience whatever they are passionate or curious about. Connecting these interests today with college prep classes helps connect the dots for after high school and keeps our student-centered model flexible and personalized.

In order to succeed later, we expose our students to college level rigor early on in their education. Our students are fully aware of and internalize the high expectations of our talented and compassionate teachers as a stepping stone to greater educational endeavors of their choosing. Our students apply problem solving and critical thinking skills both independently and collaboratively and attend at least one tuition-free college course.

Having Fun and Getting Things Done

Life is about so much more than school or work. When we come together in the Warrior way, we get a lot done together and make sure we have fun while doing it! Staying student-centered at NMSS means keeping each other’s interests, strengths, and challenges in mind while we design classes and then staying flexible to make changes as they are needed on a case by case basis.

We deliver both an exceptional education, and a truly welcoming, safe, small school environment that makes us feel more like a family and close knit community than a traditional public school.
