Make a Gift

When choosing a school for your child, you choose a community for your family. As a non-profit, independent school, our community – parents, students, faculty, staff, grandparents, alumni, and friends – are integral and essential parts of the continuing efforts to support the excellence of the school’s programs. We could not accomplish what we do every day for our children here at NNM without your exceptional support.

Thank you for supporting our mission of educating students to reach their inherent potential.
