Opening Doors

Some might find it crazy to start thinking about what you’re doing after graduation when you’re a freshman and it’s four years away. Others think that if you’re a junior and you don’t know what you’re doing, you’re doomed. But at NMSS, we meet you where you are and help you go from there. There are many paths to take and our small, engaged school makes sure you know all your many options. Here are some of the doors our free 9th-12th grade high school opens wide for you:

*Your education is personalized, meaning we look at what works best for you.

*You will have college credit by the time you graduate from NMSS. For free. Right here on campus or online, your choice. 

*You will graduate with the classes needed to enter California State and UC systems, following the A-G requirements

*You can visit a variety of post-high school education options with us: music production studios, Universal Technical Institute (UTI), art schools, and of course, college campuses.

*You can attend our College and Career Fair on campus. Visit with college, military, trade school and other career track recruiters.

*You’ll be set up with a college advisor before you even graduate, making sure you have a bridge to your college career.

*You will earn community service, giving you experience working in new roles.

*You can play the big sports and maybe land a big scholarship on Gardena High’s fields. We partner with their CIF athletic program so you can have the best of both worlds: small school, big sports opportunities.

Tools You Need

Here are some tools that NMSS gives you during your important time with us:

*Learning the confidence to advocate for what you need by working closely with an advisor, counselor, teachers, and administration. We make it easy because we want you to succeed!

*Recognizing your learning style: Do you need accountability, like a buddy to study with? Are setting goals your love language? We help you figure out what works…and what doesn’t.

*Attending AppFests where we help you fill out college and career applications- we’ve got this!

*Preparing you for what comes next with our online College & Career Center. We outline entrance exams, graduation requirements, and all the steps you can take every month of every year you’re in high school so that you’re after graduation.
