Michael Casias

I chose to come to the NAS because I needed to catch up on my credits. I graduate this year and if I had stayed at my other school that wouldn’t have happened.”


Santana Garcia

I have been attending NAS-LC for almost a year. It is great here. I love the teachers and the education I’m receiving. My favorite class is geometry.”


Araceli Zavala

I love my New America School (NAS-LC) because it has given me the opportunity to learn, grow, and develop new skills. Also it’s fun when I create projects for school. It’s even better when I have the schedule at night after work because it allows me to have time for both. The best part is that it helps me continue forward.”


Jose Mendez

I think the New America School-Las Cruces​ is great because it is opening up doors for me. I feel like I’m accomplishing a lot by coming here. The teachers are really great at assisting me in learning. Thanks NAS-LC for this opportunity.”


Paulette Duenez

The New America School-Las Cruces has given me a great opportunity and a second chance to become a better person in life. I am very thankful for this gift life has offered me. The fact that my dream of becoming a forensic scientist may become true is amazing. Thanks for this great opportunity.”
