LensesThe MS Deans recount the day in their own words:

After meeting in the GCC, around a collection of “artifacts,” we began our first day of school by introducing teachers to these objects through the lenses of our summer.

As part of the school’s culture, Nueva engages students at every skill level and encourages everyone who is interested to participate in all sports — even those that traditionally attract mostly boys.

AlumniAt Nueva Summer Camp, engaged students learned how to make their own books using a variety of materials, became detectives as they were taught about the science of investigation, and dove deep into the design challenge of a manned mission to Mars. This year, the intensives program at the middle-school level was expanded to include these exciting new offerings.

A group of exchange students from Doshisha International and Kori Senior High Schools in Japan visited the US at the end of March as part of a new US exchange program. While at Nueva, the students and chaperones attended classes, including a design thinking class, enjoyed the Evening of Song concert, and gave presentations in English on the cultural differences between Japan and the United States. Beyond Nueva, the group toured two local companies, Playground Global and Google, to learn about Silicon Valley entrepreneurship and innovation, and visited various sites in San Francisco, such as the Japanese Tea Garden and the California Academy of Sciences. To get a real taste of life in America, the students did homestays with some of the US students who went to Japan in February, thus bringing the program full circle.
