Since 1967, The Nueva School has taught high-ability students to learn by doing and learn by caring. To step onto our campus and enter a classroom is to witness a dynamic, vibrant environment where students explore and experiment. They learn to communicate and collaborate in small and large groups, as well as to demonstrate passion through individual, self-directed projects. Nueva students engage in simulations, learn to make real-world connections, monitor their own learning, and become flexible thinkers who are adept risk-takers and lifelong learners.
We want sparks to fly out of our children's brains in every direction! Students are encouraged to realize their imaginative designs by creating art, writing their own original plays, composing music, writing lyrics, investigating disappearing gingerbread men, devising original science experiments, building educational tree houses for younger students, and soldering original LED lamp designs. At Nueva, creativity occurs in mathematics -- as in art, writing, and engineering. We teach students to think about not just getting the correct answer but finding multiple ways to solve a problem.
This year, Nueva's 45th, we will fulfill the school's founding vision for a PreK-12 school as we admit the first members of the high school class of 2017. We will celebrate their graduation with Nueva's 50th anniversary. There is great excitement for the realization of this long-held dream and we look forward to welcoming you on campus to share this highly anticipated expansion!
