Areas of Support at NMSHS


We collaborate with students to develop an academic plan that not only reflects their interests and abilities but also includes rigorous, relevant coursework.


We support students to develop post-high-school goals, to create a yearly action plan, and to understand college admissions and college financial planning.


We help students to gain social knowledge and develop interpersonal skills, and to understand and respect oneself and others.
