Our School


Norton Science and Language Academy

Norton Science and Language Academy logoNorton Science and Language Academy (NSLA) is a TK-12 California Public Charter School, authorized by the San Bernardino County Office of Education. It was established in August 2008 as the Norton Space and Aeronautics Academy and opened with grades K-2.


NSLA is an award-winning dual immersion program school which supports our charter educational goals including teaching science every day starting in Kindergarten. Our goal is for all students to be able to speak, read, and write in English and Spanish in all academic areas after continued attendance in the program for five years. 


The mission of NSLA is to ensure learning for a diverse and often underserved population of students who will be college and career ready as a result of our safe and rigorous bilingual, biliterate, and multicultural education.


NSLA puts research-guided programs into best practices in the areas of teacher training, curriculum development, and pedagogy. Offering a safe haven for educational enhancement and activities allows the underserved children in the surrounding area to increase learning opportunities.

Students at the NSLA benefit from our established partnerships with many prestigious organizations:

  • National Aeronautics & Space Administration (NASA)
  • Mexican Space Agency (AEM)
  • University of California, Riverside (UCR)
  • University of Redlands
  • Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL)
  • California State University, San Bernardino (CSUSB)
  • and many more!
