“We looked at several schools, but when we found NMMI – we knew it was perfect. Our son Simen tells us this is the best decision of his life. He loves the structure on campus – always knowing what is expected of him and what to do to succeed. We are so proud of our son and thankful to NMMI for taking so good care of him and us.”
