Explore Why Families Choose The New School

At The New School, we’re committed to making a difference in the lives of students. We apply an “ownership” principle to education, which means we teach young learners to take charge of their learning. This leads to increased self-motivation, happiness, and growth. Plus, our right-sized classes, college-prep academics, and thriving teacher-student partnerships bring out the best in every learner.
