Our Philosophy: 

At The New School, we believe that a school should inspire a love of learning while promoting children’s social growth, emotional growth, intellectual development and creativity. We believe that children learn best in a positive environment with careful direction and guidance from teachers who demonstrate caring and concern for each child. We believe that a school should encourage exploration and inquiry in an environment enriched with opportunities in the arts and sciences, and we believe that a school’s instructional programs should ensure that students reach their full potential for academic achievement. To achieve these goals, The New School is committed to selecting outstanding teachers and supporting them with the highest quality of professional development.

At The New School we strive to promote a sense of community that helps each child and family feel connected and valued. We believe that school programs should promote kindness and cooperation to all members of the school community, including students, parents, faculty and staff. We believe that a school should help students become good citizens with a sense of responsibility and respect for others within the school community and throughout the world beyond.

The New School does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, color, national or ethnic origin in the admission of students, in hiring, or in the administration of its educational program.
