On July 1, 1966 the Costa Mesa Union School District, Newport Beach City School District and the Newport Harbor Union High School District unified to become the Newport-Mesa Unified School District (NMUSD).


For more than five decades Newport-Mesa Unified School District has created lasting memories and nurtured the talents of its students. NMUSD is a leader in educational innovation; delivering a rigorous, broad-based curriculum through exceptional, high-quality instruction supported by a team of dedicated educators and support staff.


Throughout the District’s rich 50 year history, it has strived to help students find their passion, purpose, and potential, to prepare them to venture into the future in careers, college and active citizenship. Whether through academics, arts, athletics or other interests, NMUSD has opportunities to match every student's talents and interest.


While much has changed in education throughout NMUSD’s 50 year history, the District takes pride in continually evolving and adapting to changing educational needs. NMUSD has exceptionally bright and forward-thinking students, teachers, staff and leadership team that remain committed to ensuring that students are well-prepared for future successes.   


“Thank you to everyone who has contributed to the success of our students,” said Superintendent Dr. Fred Navarro. “We appreciate your unwavering commitment, support and partnership as we look forward to continued success,” he said.


Stay connected throughout the 2016/17 school year, and join NMUSD in celebrating this milestone anniversary, as the District shares some fun facts and highlights of its 50 year legacy of excellence, www.nmusd.us/anniversary.
