Student Uniform - Parent Letter Sent Home
Please click HERE to see the letter that was sent home regarding student uniforms.
Dear Students and Parents –
It has come to our attention that our uniform vendor, Top Banana, as moved from their current location in the South Bay Pavilion. They will now be located at 1624 S. Main St., Los Angeles, CA 90015 tel.#213-745-7174. Top Banana will still be available to embroider the NMSS logo on approved uniform shirts, and due to the farther location, they will do so for $4.00 each.
To accommodate our student’s needs, NMSS has decided to keep uniforms in stock on campus. NMSS will begin to sell uniforms at Back to School Night on Thursday August 29th. We will continue to sell uniform shirts and students can come to the main office to purchase them.

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.
