Nathaniel Narbonne High School (NHS) is a school located at 24300 South Western Avenue, in the Harbor City area of Los Angeles, California. Narbonne serves grades 9 through 12 and is part of the Los Angeles Unified School District. Narbonne serves the Harbor City area and the city of Lomita.

Narbonne dates back to 1925. The school was named for Nathaniel A. Narbonne, a sheep rancher, who owned most of the land in the Lomita and Harbor City area. The original building, from when Narbonne covered 7th through 12 grades, is in Lomita, and is now Alexander Fleming Middle School. In 1957 the new school was built on the present site at 242nd Place and Western Avenue. The school motto is "Domus Victorum" which means "Home of the Victors." Narbonne's colors are green and gold. The school's mascot is the Gaucho, which is often regarded as an Argentinian cowboy. The official fight song for the high school is "Onward Narbonne!" which is a variation of "On, Wisconsin!" – the official state song of Wisconsin as well as the fight song of the University of Wisconsin–Madison.


As of the school year 2010–11, there were a total of 3,486 students attending the high school.[2]
