Newport-Mesa Unified School District is celebrating it’s golden anniversary this school year.
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 NMUSD.
In honor of their 50th year, district officials created a webpage to share fun facts and highlights of the last five decades.
“Thank you to everyone who has contributed to the success of our students,” said Superintendent Fred Navarro. “We appreciate your unwavering commitment, support and partnership as we look forward to continued success.”
While a lot has changed since 1966, NMUSD aims to evolve and adapt with changing educational needs and be forward-thinking, officials noted.
For the past 50 years, NMUSD has “created lasting memories and nurtured the talents of its students,” officials wrote in an announcement. The district has strived to deliver “rigorous, broad-based curriculum through exceptional, high-quality instruction supported by a team of dedicated educators and support staff.”
