Congratulations to the NMSS Softball Team!
Congratulations to the NMSS Lady Warriors Softball team for going undefeated in league during the 2013 season. The lady warriors had a stellar season and made it to the first round of playoffs as the # 11 seed in the small schools division. On Tuesday 5/14 the season came to an end after they lost to the #6 seed, Rancho Dominguez. Last year’s coach, Cristalle Callis said, “Our team had an amazing season and it was so rewarding to watch the girls grow and see new leaders emerge. We lost 6 strong seniors from the 2012 season and the girls did a great job of stepping up and playing together as a team. For them to go undefeated in league was a testament to how hard they worked. They should be very proud of themselves.”

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.
