Celebrating Student Successes

Nueva encourages students to explore their passions inside and outside the classroom, and we are pleased to share a collection of these achievements. 

Nueva partners with NASA to launch student experiments IN SPACE!

Almost one year since the Space Academy lower and middle school elective class launched Nueva’s first venture into space, the students finally have the results of a hot air pattern experiment they tested in microgravity. 

Montana TripOn Monday, April 23, 14 Nueva eleventh graders and two chaperones (upper school teachers Mark Hurwitz and Lily Brown), embarked on an immersive learning trip to Montana to study the intersection between private land and wildlife conservation. In keeping with Nueva’s Trips program, this journey was tied to students’ eleventh-grade American Studies curriculum, which focuses on American history and literature. This is Lily's account of their experience.

On the final night of their stay in Cusco, the 16 students and four chaperones of the “Trap Squad,” named for the prominence of the trapezoid in Incan architecture, gathered in the hotel lobby to recap the transformative events of the previous week and get up to speed on their travel plans for the remaining days ahead.

“That feels like it was a month ago!”

When discussing the events of their first few days in Peru — highlighted by getting to know their tour guide, Andres Cordero, visiting ancient ruins, and seeing the night sky of the southern hemisphere at the Cusco Planetarium — the students, in unison, exclaimed how long ago those first few days seemed to be. 

That is the nature of travel — time moves more slowly. The group’s days were full of new tastes, sounds, smells, information, and challenges as they traversed varying geography, urban and rural settings, and generations of history.
