CommunitDinnersWhile in many high schools parents are often on the periphery, Nueva Upper School values and welcomes parents to campus as often as possible.

Community Dinners have become part of the fabric of the life of Nueva’s Upper School. Held by individual grade, parents spend an evening having dinner together, building connections and relationships, and discussing ways to support their students.
