Middle School Tours are open to families with children looking to apply to the Nueva Middle School (grades 5-8) in the 2016-2017 admissions season. During the tour, parents visit classrooms to observe Nueva teaching and learning in action. There is a brief overview of the curriculum and program highlights, and an opportunity to ask questions about the school and the admissions process.
The Open House is an event for students to participate in mini-lessons while parents observe, ask questions, and learn more about our curriculum and programs. The lessons, along with the student and faculty panel, provide you and your family with additional insights into our Nueva classrooms and community.
Please note that all Open Houses will take place at the Bay Meadows upper school campus in San Mateo, 131 East 28th Avenue.
Students who score in the range of candidates considered for admission move forward in the process, and are invited to a campus visit. The campus visit is an opportunity for your child to experience a day in the life of Nueva by accompanying Nueva students through their school day, and engaging in typical class activities. Middle School applicants spend the day in the grade to which they are applying. Campus visits are scheduled between October and mid-February.
Students who score in the range of candidates considered for admission are also invited to an activity session with other middle school applicants.The activity session is composed of a fun ice-breaker, followed by a creative and collaborative group project and presentation. Sessions take place between January and February on weekend days, and are a requried part of the admissions process.
