The mission of The New America School is to empower new immigrants, English language learners, and academically underserved students with the educational tools and support they need to maximize their potential, succeed and live the American dream.
The New America School-New Mexico (NAS-NM) is a public charter high school dedicated to serving a unique population - recent immigrants, their families and children who want to learn or perfect English and earn a high school diploma.
We are a fully accredited, publicly funded institution. Our highly qualified staff provides intensive English language instruction and a rigorous academic curriculum to help students fulfill their dream of a better future.
At The New America School we believe educational opportunity is a cornerstone of American life and that English language skills are an essential component. NAS-NM was created to serve English language learners and un-enrolled students who might lack the English skills to succeed in mainstream high schools.
NAS-NM offers a full schedule of classes day and night. The campus is open Monday through Thursday from 8:00am - 10:00pm. No classes on Friday. Classes are available for full and part-time students.
