Mission and Philosophy

The Nueva School, located in the San Francisco Bay Area and founded in 1967, is a nationally recognized independent school serving gifted and talented students from prekindergarten through high school. The progressive, child-centered school emphasizes integrated studies, creative arts, and social-emotional learning. It provides a constructivist program, project-based learning, and special-area teachers in visual art, reading, math, science, music, physical education, technology, and social and emotional learning. Teachers work in teams to develop thematic curricula for classes.


The Nueva School uses a dynamic educational model to enable gifted children to learn how to make choices that will benefit the world.


Our school community inspires passion for lifelong learning, fosters social and emotional acuity, and develops the child's imaginative mind.
