What should high school look like in the 21st century? We believe that American education calls for a new model of learning. New School High is a place where innovation challenges the status quo, where excellence is an expectation for every member, and where achievement is measured in character as well as academic success. As a life-long high school teacher, parent, and grandparent, I invite you to become a part of this exciting new vision for learning.

All my best,

Personal Growth

Deep Learning

Community Engagement

New School High was created by experienced high school teachers who are also parents. Using the most current research and best educational practices, we have designed a high school experience that will be significantly different. At New School High, the focus is on deep learning, personal growth, and community engagement. Everything about New School High is explicitly designed to help each and every student fulfill their potential and become skillful, confident lifelong learners and engaged citizens.
