NMSS Loses Two Founding Members, Ms. Donna Hackner and Dr. Lynne Cook
The NMSS family has lost two amazing individuals who helped to create NMSS. Ms. Donna Hackner was the founding principal of NMSS, and retired due to health concerns in October, 2009. She was instrumental in the opening of NMSS. Ms. Hackner passed away on May 6, 2015.
Dr. Lynne Cook was a founding board member of NMSS, and later served as the board president. She we the driving force behind the partnership with CSUDH and the successful creation of a fully integrated special education program at NMSS. She chaired the academic committee and was frequently found on campus, meeting with staff and students, to ensure she was a well-informed, active member of the board. Dr. Cook passed away on July 7, 2015.
Both Ms. Hackner and Dr. Cook were critical in the founding of NMSS and will be deeply missed by the entire NMSS family.

WASC Completes Accreditation Visit and Report
03/08/2012 NMSS welcomed a committee of five education experts this week to conduct a site visit for the Western Accreditation of Schools and Colleges (WASC). The WASC team arrived on March 4 and stayed through March 7th. During that time, they visited every classroom, talked to students, staff, and parents, and observed all aspects of the school. At the completion of their visit, they read their findings in a public meeting on March 7, attended by members of staff, students and parents. The overall feeling from the team was that they enjoyed coming to NMSS, and they saw a lot of very good things going on at the school.
Full report is available to view.
NMSS currently has "Candidacy Status" through 2013, which allows graduates to apply and be accepted to college and for credits to transfer to other schools. So far, almost 50% of the senior class has already received acceptance letters from colleges and universities.
