Nueva teachers encourage intellectual depth and rigor, hold high expectations for students, and help each child grow to his or her potential. Student achievement and learning goals come directly from the school's mission and vision statements and its motto, "Learn by doing, learn by caring." These guide all aspects of the school community, including program development and setting student-achievement goals. Learning goals are attained in classrooms, on playing fields, in the Forts, in the Cafe, and within all areas of our community.

The Nueva School's learning goals include:

  • To inspire a passion for lifelong learning
  • To foster social and emotional acuity
  • To develop a child's imaginative mind
  • To enable children to learn how to make choices that will benefit the world
  • To establish foundational skills in all subject areas
  • To encourage strong habits of learning
  • To learn research and design thinking skills
  • To help students reflect on their particular learning styles, strengths, and weaknesses
  • To give students myriad opportunities to learn through hands-on exploration
  • To support students as they develop resilience and intrinsic motivation
