NLMUSD’s Southeast Academy provides rigorous and relevant academic high school curriculum to prepare young men and women interested in careers in law enforcement, military, fire sciences and related public service fields.

El Camino High is a fully accredited California Model continuation school providing students with a way to achieve their educational goals in a smaller setting with a more individualized focus when efforts have not been successful at a traditional high school.

Norwalk-La Mirada Unified also prioritizes early childhood learning, student safety and parent engagement, operating 28 pre-K sites, various after-school learning programs and monthly parent meetings with District Superintendent Dr. Hasmik Danielian.
