Looking ahead to 2020–21

The Nueva School is delighted to welcome Lee Fertig as our new head of school. He assumed his new role on July 1, 2020. 

I am truly humbled and honored to have the privilege to lead one of the very best independent schools in the United States. The fact that the entire Nueva community genuinely embraces the central role that social and emotional learning plays in education, especially for gifted learners, makes this professional leadership opportunity even more exciting for me. I have been inspired by everyone's passion, dedication, intellect, ambition, and heart.
