About Us

Welcome to Norwalk-La Mirada Adult School (NLMAS), a proud member of the Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District (NLMUSD), located in southeast Los Angeles County. Our commitment is rooted in the district's overarching goal: "Every Student. Future Ready. Our Promise!" This motto encapsulates our dedication to becoming the district of destination for every student.

NLMUSD serves a diverse community, encompassing pre-K to adult learners across preschools, 17 elementary, five middle, and five high schools, in addition to our very own adult school. Established in 1937, Norwalk-La Mirada Adult School has been an integral part of the Norwalk and La Mirada communities for over 85 years.

At NLMAS, we are fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), a testament to our commitment to maintaining high educational standards. You can view our accreditation report here.   

With a focus on empowering our students, our motto, "Education Opens Doors," echoes our mission to provide pathways to success. Our offerings include an extensive Career Technical Education program featuring fee-based career training programs and office administrative career pathways.

Beyond career development, we are proud to host an English as a Second Language and citizenship program, providing multiple classes both on-site and throughout the district. Additionally, our high school diploma/high school equivalency program caters to the unique needs of adult students.

We stand out in our region for offering one of the few adults with disabilities programs, demonstrating our commitment to inclusivity and personalized learning. Over the years, NLMAS has embraced the state's directive, working collaboratively with workforce and education partners, community stakeholders, and industry leaders to ensure our students are well-prepared for life and work.

At Norwalk-La Mirada Adult School, we believe in preparing students for a life filled with choices and opportunities. Join us on this educational journey, where our motto remains a guiding beacon: "Education Opens Doors."
