10 PeninsulaBridge peninsulabridgeNow in its second year, Nueva’s partnership with the Peninsula Bridge after-school enrichment program continues to grow and change in exciting ways.

Every Monday and Friday afternoon, middle school students from local public schools in and around San Mateo come to Nueva's Bay Meadows campus to work on English and language arts (ELA) and math. Nueva teachers Michaela Danek and Wes Patten work with eight Nueva student TAs to share Nueva’s pedagogical values with Peninsula Bridge students, focusing on project-based learning opportunities.

STEM Fair 2018

On Sunday, March 18, nearly 1,200 visitors traveled to Nueva's upper school campus for the annual STEM Fair. This year's program offerings included partnerships with the San Mateo Astronomical Society, Virtual Reality Experience, GoBabyGo!, and iD Tech Camps. From marble runs and human generated electricity to science raps and the amazing poster pavilion, there was something for everyone to enjoy.

“You begin with the possibilities of material.”
— Robert Rauschenberg, Artist

Nearly 150 Nueva community members came together to enjoy contemporary art at San Francisco’s Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) on Saturday, March 10. Families attended a special weekend tour with Lower School Art Specialist Reenie Charrière, a practicing artist and former museum educator who guided them through the retrospective entitled Robert Rauschenberg: Erasing the Rules.


Nueva encourages students to explore their passions inside and outside the classroom, and each month for the remainder of the year we will share and celebrate a collection of these achievements.
